Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

Hard reset and restore the backup from before the update, just results in it getting corrupt again.

 

Try again and I can restore everything except Apps & Settings with it staying stable.

 

Very annoying as some of the settings take a long time to set up and some of the WLAN access points I'll have to go find the keys for!

 

If it's an app killing it, I'd be happy just restoring the settings but it seems you can't do just settings.

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

[ Edited ]

Hello to all,
I have updated my E72 OTA and it had a "cyclic restart" problem.
After I applied *#7370# it came back to life and when I did the restore from mem card about 50% of the stuff came back but much didnt.
IE - mail for exchange had to be configured again, many programs (all have been installed in the phone memory) just have dissapeared.
I have VoxTrack to record my calls - before it worked splendid with "no beep" feature. Now it beeps even faster and louder when I select "no beep".
And MOST IMPORTANT - now each day the phone tendst to "freeze" in some app. Not totaly, but this app does not respond untill reboot (ie - messaging) and EACH DAY i have 3 to 10 popups saying "System error" or "Kernel error" or...
Will try to reinstal over OVI suite and post experience later today.

.............................................................................................................................

Have tried but since it is already 54.005 - cant get the option to reinstall it...

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

Found the reinstall link and applied it.
So farr so good. There seemed that there was no need for restore but I did it anyway, from the last backup created while preparing for reinstalation of the FW. All the info on *#0000# is the same but have no errors yet :smileyhappy:

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

Here is the progress of "testing" the upgrade to new version:
phone works fine for a time and than something happens (inside symbian). First symptom is that the clock in the upper left corner DISAPPEARS. ???!
When it happens - messaging fails to open menu, by pressing "Options" and freezes. Many other apps too, bu it is interesting that some apps are not affected.
In such state, the clock can be brought back by long press "home" and choosing the "Standby".
I have not found a cure other than rebooting the phone.
Any solutions from NOKIA?

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

Using Nokia Lumia 1320.

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

premal, thanks for the advice but it didn't work for me.
However,
I have noticed one more setback - Calendar: System error (-1), when trying to delete events in calendar.
When I try "delete before date..." - I do not get the error message but the entries are NOT deleted....

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

Seems that noone is looking here for solutions on problems afther update of this firmware.
I have noticed additional problems in messaging application:
1. After restore (previously described) i have Lotus Traveler and Mail for exchange inboxes that have "?" - a question mark instead of the appropriate icon and I can NOT remove them.
2. When using the client and adding recepients to the mail, when selecting the recepient I get error message: System messaging (-6) and have to type whole mail address instead of selecting it from the contact.

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

remove voxtrack completely. believe me i too had these trouble . like clock disappearing, error messages, kernel error messages, screen freezing at contact selection for sms.

just remove voxtrack. run ur phone w/o voxtrack for 3days. and u will notice the difference!!

2.) i dont know if any of you do experience dis big bug....this is the worst of ehm all... My wilan wizard pops up showing search for wilan(please no questions and argues about this,becaz dis is not my first time,i have every wilan settings off,no automatic search on,everything was meant to be started by me,becaz its ma fone)that is preety annoyn,becaz it pops up whenever am doing an important thing,and when nt necessary..

Re: New firmware for E72 : 054.005

Hey,

yesterday i experienced some useful thing: if the keypad is locked and you press and hold the optical navkey down then a digital clock, date and the used profile appears. pretty useful when you just want to know the time/date etc. and I don't know if this feature was there right from the start or came with 54 FW.

 

@Klass_ic: hey, actually I don't know/understand why you have to have opened a game, web browser, email app, contacts and what so ever that's your thing but what helped me on the n97 is ramblow for those memory issues (which I didn't have once on the e72 btw no matter what fw i had installed). to your 2.) point: is whatsapp messenger or a similar app installed on your device? i experienced really annoying wlan auto-connections even with my wlan settings set to not automatically search like you. it just connects via wlan no matter what i did. maybe its just some application and I would check on this.

totally agree on point 5)

 

Greetings
