Latest firmware for 5130 XM

Latest firmware for 5130 XM

I looked for new firmware for my Nokia 5130 XM hoping to find one with active standby, but when I wrote down my current firmware version (v. 06.94) and mobile code, looked in to Nokia homepage, the said, that the latest firmware is v 06.65. How is that possible, to have newer version of firmware than Nokia themselves?

 

I know, that a lot of depends of region, but I bought this phone last December in one of the best mobile phone store in Latvia. So, I am quite certain, that this mobile was meant for Latvia as far as it`s firmware. When I tried to upgrade, Software updater said, that you already have latest firmware. Is there something, that I should know?

 

 

P.S. I really don`t understand, why this phone don`t have active standby, as far as I know, most of s40v5 phones are equipped with this option. I am not asking for Nokia Maps s40 (actually it would be nice to include this application also), but at least, in the next firmware, would it be possible to include active standby?

 

Thanks for advice! :smileyhappy:

Re: Latest firmware for 5130 XMs

Generally, it's better to run the latest firmware. And, updating the firmware is not a big deal considering the fact that you have to be a bit careful with the PC and your phone's battery before you start updating. Therefore, it's good to check for updates and update the firmware when something new is available.

 

Nokia doesn't announce when a new update will be available unless it's some flagship model, therefore do not go behind speculations.

Cheers,

Re: Latest firmware for 5130 XMs

Hello,

 

About the security code, try entering a blank security code, meaning when you enter your phones security code, leave it blank then enter.

 

I don't know if this will apply in your phone too but after I updated the firmware to 7.91 this was happened to me. It change my security code and can't change.

Re: Latest firmware for 5130 XMs

Yesterday i updated my firmware version to 7.91, and i find some changes:

 

        1. It`s a bit faster,

        2. There is no Screensaver option in Settings menu, so you can`t cange it,

        3. Music library updates at least 2 times faster, maybe even 3 times,

        4. When you try to open not highlightet option (for example: restore backup, operator logo), it shows a message, that you can`t do that, previously it didn`t said anything, so it`s better,

 

Those are quite good news, except about the screensaver, but there is one major problem, so i would love to get my previous firmware (v.6.94) back:

 

        It now takes much longer time to open or switch song in music player. If previously it was almost instantly, than now it takes at least 4-5 sec just to switch songs, an the title of the song appears even later, 2 sec after song starts to play. And when switching songs, there is unpleasent sound betweeon those songs, like old cd players, when switching songs, some kind of crack sound.

 

It chenges songs so slowly, when i hold my phone in the pocket, and than change a song, now i can`t be sure, did i change it, ur just pause it. C`mon: 5 seconds????

 

So, please, reply me: am i the only one with that annoying music player problem.

Re: Latest firmware for 5130 XM

Yesterday I brought my phone to nearest Nokia Care center, with additional problem with new firmware (v7.91), they updated it to v7.95 (realest February 3rd, 2010).

 

Still there is no Active stand-by, there is no screensaver or power saving option as well, but at least everything works almost fine (except Music player still isn`t as fast as it was with v9.94, but it`s not so lag full as it was with v7.91).

 

And option Downloads is now replaced with OVI Store.

 

So, please, Nokia, if you can`t make v8.xx sooner, then at least give us back v6.94, it was the most stable version of all.

iRe: Latest firmware for 5130 XM

I recently updated my phone to the new version 7.91 and it is terrible. I have lost the screen saver option. My phone is responding slower. Usually an update should enhance the feature but this update has de-enhanced the features. Its too bad. When will the next update be released for Nokia 5130 or can I rollback to the previous version

@Robuuc:

I have the same issue with the lagging when changing tracks it's beyond annoying, hopefully whenever the next updates out it rectifies this problem.

Re: Latest firmware for 5130 XMs

i really notice that this 7.95 firmware is that

 

--->the MUSIC PLAYER took seconds before playing the next track, although updating MUSIC LIBRARY is faster but the playback is slow..

 

--->no Screen Saver Options...

 

--->phone lags...T__T

Re: Latest firmware for 5130 XMs

Actually it`s so annoying, that, if the Nokia won`t release new firmware in one week i will buy new phone, because, i can`t take this no more. I have been patient too long, 5 months, but that ie enough!

 

How is that even possible, that my other Nokia (E50 - one of the slowest phone in the Symbian world) beats the **bleep** out of the mighty XpressMusic by switching songs??

 

NOKIA, C`MON!!!

Re: Latest firmware for 5130 XM

After reading about this topic, we have the same problem as a Nokia XM 5130 phone users.

the 7.96 firmware update sucks. the old software was better to use than the new update. While music player is active it takes longer to select new songs and while using music player and receives a text message it takes longer time to resume the music. after that the music sounds turns low. Although i notice my phone was faster but its too annoying that your screensaver doesnt work anymore. <sigh> I hope nokia will release a new and better firmware for XM 5130. or if not try giving back the old firmware.
