New software update available for Asha 308 & Asha 309: v. 7.55

[ Edited ]

Hey,

 

Good news! We are currently rolling out a new software update Asha 308 (RM-838 & RM-852) and Asha 309 (RM-843 & 844): v.7.55.  This is a major release and should be already available for most customers both via FOTA and Nokia Suite. Find the update instructions from here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/belle-asha-symbian-software-update

 

Key changes compared to previous 5.80/5.85 SW versions include:

 

  • Improvements to call quality, phone memory management and video playback performance
  • Manual display brightness control added
  • Updated versions of Nokia Xpress browser, Maps, Chat, Twitter and Mail applications
  • eBuddy, Nokia Nearby, Notifications and Internet Telephone (Nokia VoIP) applications added
  • General performance & usability improvements

Have a great weekend! :smileyhappy:

 

PS. if you are using Nokia Suite for the update, make sure you update your Nokia Suite to the latest 3.7.22 version first! Otherwise you will not get some of those application updates. Download it here: http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/support/product/nokia-suite

Re: New software update available for Asha 308 & Asha 309: v. 7.55

Dear Sir,

 

My phone is a nokia asha 308. Love this phone for the size and the simple features that fulfils my needs for a work phone. 

 

Now, my problem with this update is because there is a preloade notifications app that i think it's suppose to take the push messages in one place but it's not working right. Before the update my os version is 5.85 and the notifications app was installed automatically after i downloaded whatsapp but, looks like the notifications app blocks whatsapp connecting to its server and causing the messages was not delivered unless i open whatsapp. When i deleted the notifications app, whatsapp can connect to its server without problem.

 

I hope you guys from nokia can resolve this probably by making the notifications app not a system file so it can be removed. I'm stuck with this update because i can not downgrade it and i hate it..makes my whatsapp app useless and i actually use it a lot. My temporary solution till now is only leaves whatapp open so i can receives the messages in instant.

 

Thank u..

Re: New software update available for Asha 308 & Asha 309: v. 7.55

Hey ,

 

Though i am not familiar with asha 308,AFAIK there no such kind of issue in my asha 311.Because there is notification app as well as whatsapp the asha 311 firmware.These both works perfectly for me and i think there is no link in between these both.whatsapp works perfectly though there is notifications app.

 

By the way NOTIFICATIONS app works with few applications like 

1.Hike

2.Facebook for every phone(latest version)

3.CNN app.

 

Try these and check whether notification app is working or not.:smileyhappy:

abramadhi:

 

thanks for the feedback. Whatsapp does not currently officially support Asha 308 or any other Nokia dual-SIM devices (here's the list of supported devices: http://www.whatsapp.com/s40), so unexpected behaviour like that can be experienced, if you try to run that app on Asha 308. 

 

We are currently investigating workaround for the issue.

Re: New software update available for Asha 308 & Asha 309: v. 7.55

The update is currently temporarily available on via FOTA (and not via Nokia Suite). There was a small problem with automatic user data restore with Nokia Suite after the update, which is currently being investigating. If you already updated your device with Nokia Suite, you might have to trigger the userdata restore manually from "tools->restore".

Re: New software update available for Asha 308 & Asha 309: v. 7.55

Hi,

 

I am using the Nokia asha 309. My problem here is I can't seem to update my phones software. I currently have the 5.85 installed in my handset but when ever I try to update via either Nokia Suit or the pones software update function, it keeps telling me that my phone is up-to-date.

Re: New software update available for Asha 308 & Asha 309: v. 7.55

Hi Satyam,

 

Does your whatsapp gives you notification even though it's being hidden? Mine was giving a pop-up notification everytime it's received a message when i hide it. Notifications app once put some of the old messages into its notification list but when i tried to open it from inside the notification app, it says "failed to open". and whatsapp didn't give me any popup notification. That's when i removed the notifications app from the 5.85 and from that moment on whatsapp always gave me the popup..

 

Hope that i can remove the notifications app because it's useless for me and ebuddy, never use it.
