E71 new firmware 510.21.009

Hi, Nokia software updater found the new firmare 510.21.009 for my Nokia E71.

Does anyone know if it works fine? Does it have any bug like the v. 500 call delay or abnormal battery consumption or clock/calendars errors etc.?

thanks

Re: E71 new firmware 510.21.009

i have found 2 bugs in this firmware

1) sometimes to change the clock alarm tone, the sound doesnt preview

2) quickoffice doesnt lauch for first time. in order to lauch it, a .doc file must be opened.

 

the firmware is good BUT i have the impression nokia doesnt do testing at all when releasing firmware...

Hello!


Hi, Nokia software updater found the new firmare 510.21.009 for my Nokia E71.

Does anyone know if it works fine? Does it have any bug like the v. 500 call delay or abnormal battery consumption or clock/calendars errors etc.?


I can NOT recommend this software update. It basically bricked my E71. :-(

 

The firmware 510.21.009 introduces severe stability problems with the USB connection to the PC. Problems start immediately during software update. Part of the software is a reset and installation of some support programs on the phone. That's the first that fails.

 

With 510.21.009 on the phone, Ovi Suite and Nokia Software Updater (NSU) fail to re-install the firmware cleanly because the connection is lost after some seconds. Chances are that you will be stuck with 510.21.009 forever as it doesn't allow any up- or downgrade.

 

If 510.21.009 was a good firmware, that wouldn't be a big problem because it might be one of the last E71 updates anyway. But 510.21.009 also introduces a battery consumption problem. Previously (firmware 500.21.009) the stand-by time was about 4-7 days (battery is about 2 years old), now it is about 1-2 days maximum. And if you use the phone during the day (phone calls, web browsing etc), the battery will hardly last until evening.

 

With the previous firmware 500.21.009 the E71 was an excellent phone. I've never had any trouble with firmware updates, so there was no reason to reject the offer when Ovi Suite asked me to update to 510.21.009.

 

Now, the E71 is unusable. I have to buy a new phone. I would like to stay with Nokia if they already had some good Windows 7 phones, but I will not spend hundreds of Euros to buy a Symbian-based phone these days because we all know this platform is dead.

 

Stay away from firmware 510.21.009 for your E71!

I have Nokia E71 and i did update to 510.21.009 from ovi Pc suite.

I have a problem with the buttons(from time to time the button from up-left keyboard, the button 3,6,9 and note button. not working)

It's possible it not working because i did update to this version?

Re: E71 new firmware 510.21.009

Thanks for sharing your experiences, I have the 410 and I think I will keep it.

Do you think there will be a new update after 510?

Re: E71 new firmware 510.21.009

there's an upper version over 510. That version is 6xx.

you must modify a file in the memory of your e71 to get that upgrade... and i think that is the latest.

Yes, I've upgraded to 510.21.009.  No problems so far as mentioned by others.  And QuickOffice will not launch until you have opened a word doc, and it will ask for registration information.

Re: E71 new firmware 510.21.009

Hallo!

 

What I definitely complain about:

The "Endomondo" software - version "4.00(9)" originally installed from OVI.com - DOESN'T EVEN START with the E71 firmware 510.21.009 !

 

Maybe someone could help me?

 

Best regards,

Peter.
