Re: FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR NOKIA E5-00

The region does matter as not all updates are released for all regions.

With this only being a minor version number change it's likely that it was an update for a specific language or region.

Even with major versions not all countries get them as the same time so it's often a case of waiting.

Re: FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR NOKIA E5-00

Can someone perhaps post a changelog / show us what has been changed in the 042.014 version?

Re: FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR NOKIA E5-00

Feb 10th and still waiting for an update in Pakistan.

Seems like the Symbian dev team is busy with the rolling out updates and fixing issues for the higher end models.

The last firmware on this phone was in Jul 2010, which was 042.007 - which means, the phone's still stuck on the launch firmware.

It has a gazillion issues and seems like Nokia is not interested in entertaining the consumers after they've added their revenue numbers.

The business plan is to fight the recession revenue numbers by launching more models than you can handle with half-baked products and no effort on fixing the issues.

Bad plan Nokia - these revenues will not sustain.

Hi, I updated to 042.014 last week and yesterday I tried to use the flashlight, but it does not any more work. I mean I cannot start it by pressing long time the space bar. Earlier this has been working very stable every time. The flash works itself when taking a picture.

 

Also the problem with very loud alarm sound has not been fixed.

@Spektr ,I have see that site. And i got none of those issues. NONE! Lol.. But instead, my phone has stopped restarting since i updated it. That guy has some software that are messing with his phone. He should try hard reset.

Re: FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR NOKIA E5-00

hi,

the new version of firmware .014 has intermediately fixed the switched off issue but still happens , but the phone is still very slow, a hard reset and a firmware update both have not fixed it, nokia is acting like a sleepy cow ,waiting to be put out of business while other mobile o/s companies comes up with updates for any issues with there phones ,nokia likes to have people waiting frustrated , shame on them.

From my initiate analysis I believe nokia is not able to successful manufacture phones with 600 much arm 11 processors there phones come with a bundle of glitches.and defects

I strongly advice them to recall the faulty phones ,its deemed unfit to be called a smart phone.

Re: FIRMWARE UPDATE FOR NOKIA E5-00

Just one more thing, if you upgrade to the 014 version there is no going back, you can do a hard reset but this just change the changes you made in this release, you can not downgrade, only upgrade to new versions ... greetings, the best is wait for a better version tested
