New software update for Nokia Asha 308 (RM-838): v. 8.13

[ Edited ]

Hey folks,

 

Nokia has started rolling out a new update for Nokia Asha 308 (RM-838): v. 8.13. The update should be already available to most countries via FOTA and Nokia Suite. Find the update instructions from here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/asha-software-update

 

Key changes compared to previous 7.55 SW version include:

 

  • Improvements for video streaming.
  • Launchers for Mail For Exchange, Whatsapp, eBuddy and Youtube added.
  • Updated versions of Nokia Xpress Browser, Nokia Store, Notifications and News and Offers applications.
  • Updated versions of Email & Chat applications. Available via Nokia Suite.
  • Updated versions of Twitter and Facebook. Available via Nokia Suite.
  • 10 new Gameloft games. Available via Nokia Suite.

The updated Twitter, Facebook and eBuddy versions are expected to become available also to Nokia Store later.

 

If you plan to update the phone using Nokia Suite, make sure you install the latest Nokia Suite 3.8 client version first. You can get it from here: http://nds1.nokia.com/files/support/global/phones/software/Nokia_Suite_webinstaller_ALL.exe

 


 

Note:

if you update your Asha 308 to 8.13 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.

Re: New software update for Nokia Asha 308 (RM-838): v. 8.13

[Firmware update 8.13 for Asha 308] Well news to you. This update is just sitting on my phone! Made space for 12 mb update package with deleting whatsapp, other apps, texts and even the default wallpapers. Now that it's downloaded it asks for 10 mb of additional space to be installed. Now how do I make that happen in Asha 308? There is a option to delete the pre-installed useless apps but lordy! Can't touch ,em. Nuh-uh. Please advise :smileyhappy:

Re: New software update for Nokia Asha 308 (RM-838): v. 8.13

Hello!

I'm using the asha 309, but I think that it has the same interface. When new update will come to Asha 309?


Also, I'm not happy with some functions:

 

1. Notes. Why there is no app for them? It's integrated with calendar and has limit - only 30 notes!!! It's really a small amount - I'm using notes very often and this limit was a big dissapointment.

I think it will be really cool if notes will became a standalone app and will not have any limits.

 

2. Calendar and lockscreen. I think it would be nice if reminders and memos from calendar will be showing at lockscreen and the screen with clock, date and shortcuts - like a calendar widget. Like it was at S60 phones and I guess that Asha with qwerty keyboard has that function too. So why there is no such a function at Asha touch phones? It would be useful.

 

3. There is no copy/paste?! It must be fixed.

 

I'm also not happy with the camera, but this is not software problem.

But why Nokia using fixed focus?! My previous phone was 5530 and it was perfect, but after 2 years of intensive using it started to falling apart. I wanted to buy new S60 smartphone, but this issue with fixed focus cameras forced me to buy an android phone (which I hate, but I have no choice :smileysad:  ).

I mean Asha seems nice, but Nokia must really do something with the cameras - if there will be Asha phone with autofocus and flash, I would run to the store and buy it immediately.

Is there any possibility that all of this will be fixed in future software updates?

 

sorry for my English

@Manbar reset your phone using *#7370#. Music App should be back. If it doesn't try re-installing the update using Nokia OVI Suite.

Re: New software update for Nokia Asha 308 (RM-838): v. 8.13

@armagon could you please break update 8.13 into two parts? Firmware updates and Facebook, Twitter, email app and browser update in one and rest of apps and games in another. There isn't enough memory to install whole package on Asha 308 even after deleting all data including apps, contacts, messages, calendar entries and even wallpapers and themes that can be deleted.

Re: New software update for Nokia Asha 308 (RM-838): v. 8.13

Today i updated my Nokia asha 308 to v8.13.. I expected the copy paste feature will be available in this update, but i disappointed after checking that :-( there is no copy/paste feature in this phone :-( then what is the use of calling this a smartphone ?? The other things are ok for me.. But the copy/paste option, i need it very badly.. Even my previous phone ( Nokia 2700classic ) had copy/paste option :-( hope it will be included in the next update.. Plz its a request.

Copy/Paste in the sense clip board... I mean copy paste of texts. Even though its a small silly function many users are missing this function. Because its really really useful function and i think Asha series being a smartphone, this function is must in this. Lack of this function is really annoying me. Plz include this in the next update.

just a quick heads up that the update should be now available also via FOTA for most countries/regions.
