Re: Firmware patch for 6600i slide ??

Hi,

I changed my Nokia usb cable for a standard usb cable. With the new cable, I could update the firmware to version 36.60. First, I have used and updated to the latest version of Nokia Ovi Suite. After reboot the pc, I launched the firmware upgrade. (15 minutes approx.). It seems that all functions and errors are corrected.

 

What do you mean with a "standard usb cable" ? It has to be compatible with the phone, is it right ?

Finaly!

The updatet Ovi Suite 2.1.1.1 made it possible to update the Firmware to v. 36.60!

 The Auto focus is now working!  :smileyvery-happy: ( Still not a god camera, but at least it´s working)

 Seems like the display function is improved to.

 Thanks.

 

This is a very good information.

Some other information about the display, please ?

Where do you live ?

Nokia cable that came in the box with my nokia 6600i, only work properly to perform the copy or restore, not for the firmware update.

I used a standard cable. USB -> micro USB.

Re: Firmware patch for 6600i slide ??

Finally I have successfully updated to v. 36.60 by Nokia Ovi Suite... BUT the display is always off after ten seconds. Also with the slide open.

Someone is able to set up the display (energy saver and suspension mode) ? 

Five months have passed waiting for this update ???

Re: Firmware patch for 6600i slide ??

Hi, I have been able to install this update also after upgrading Ovi to the latest version. I now have maps application on my 6600i which was not there before. But I have lost the default dark wallpaper. Now there is only "silver" theme and wallpaper. Does anyonw know where I can get the dark version of the same theme? I prefer it to the new look. Thanks!

Re: Firmware patch for 6600i slide ??

Yesterday I have updated to 36.60. But I also get still the same errors:

- Display getting dark after about 10 seconds (with all constellations of energy saver and suspension mode)

- Receiving time of SMS still 1 hour in the future

My hopes have been destroyed !

Re: Firmware patch for 6600i slide ??

I'm really annoyed and bored and the main problems of 6600i slide are not solved.

I'll sell it or, more probably, I'll give it to someone who hasn't a phone.

No more Nokia, for the life.

Probably, this is my last message in this forum.

Goodbye all :smileywink:

Re: Firmware patch for 6600i slide ??

I have been waiting in hope for the new firmware 36.60, can someone confirm that the new firmware is still no good? Im wondering if trading standards will be more interested than NOKIA? I have used nokia phones for the last 10 years but no more, im going to give this phone to my 10 year old son and start looking for another brand with working software.

Re: Firmware patch for 6600i slide ??

I'm on 36.16 and both NSU and Ovi tells me that that is the latest available firmware update.

 

I too is annoyed at the screen going black, in my case is seems to be more like 5 seconds.
