We have started rolling out a new software update for Nokia Asha 305 (RM-766): v.7.42. The update is already available to most countries via FOTA and Nokia Suite. Find the update instructions from here: www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/asha-
Key changes compared to previous 7.35 SW update include:
PS. if you update your device with Nokia Suite, make sure you install the latest Nokia Suite 3.8 client version first. You can download it from here: http://nds1.nokia.com/files/support/global/phones/
if you update your Asha 305 to 7.42 SW version with Nokia Suite, you will get a new Email application that does not support Push Email Notifications and Email Scheduling. FOTA update on the other hand would keep the old Email application. If Push Email Notification and Email Polling are important features for you it is recommend to update the phone SW via FOTA.
If Push Email Notification and Email Scheduling are not important features for you, the phone SW update can safely be installed using Nokia Suite. With this new version of the Email application you can get Self-Updates when Nokia releases a newer version.
Can you tell me when the new software version 7.42 will be available in India either by OTA or via the Nokia Suite.
not available in Brazil so far
The update is not available everywhere yet, but I'd expect it to be become available for more countries/regions in coming days & weeks.
There are no changes for the video playback behaviour - 320x240 resolution videos are "blocked" with the "video quality too high" error message as based on the test results it was considered that those heavier videos do not playback smoothly enough. The phone's own camera is capable of recording videos only in 176x144 resolution and videos using that resolution should playback fine.
yes, we will be making a new bug report about that.
the only way to go back to 5.92 would be to visit a Nokia Care service point and get the phone reflashed there.
the update should be now out also via FOTA for many countries/regions.
we have addressed the requirement to add e.g. the copy-paste functionality several times, but unfortunately it's quite unlikely that such feature would be added to the current lines of products which are missing it
as for the camera sounds - that is a local decision caused by "legistlation". so in some countries (like India) the option to disable the camera sound has been "intentionally" removed from the phone SW. as far as I know, for example any European SW variants would on the other hand have the option included. I personally agree that this kind of restrictions may not always make sense from end-user point of view
btw. one bigger thing about this update that should be probably highlighted even more is the added Whatsapp client. Asha 305 is one of the Asha models which did have proper support for the application earlier (and in fact Whatsapp is not even available for Asha 305 in Whatsapp's own site or Nokia Store yet - coming there in near future), but it's now included in this SW update.
Sir, can you give me an approximate date or time as to when the software update will be available in India? So far, it's not available via Nokia Suite v3.8.3 or via OTA. The update is very urgent for this phone. Pls reply.

Who is not giving correct suggestion ?
Be informed that this is a User-to-User Forum..and BTW, your query has been already answered in THIS thread .. Just be patient and wait till an update is released for YOUR device. If you can't; ask your local Nokia care whether they can do it for you ..
