New software update for Nokia Asha 501/501 Dual SIM: v. 11.1.1

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

great news!

we have started rolling out a new software update for Nokia Asha 501 (RM-899 & RM-900) and Nokia Asha 501 Dual SIM (RM-902): v. 11.1.1. This is a major update and should be now already available to most users. 

 

See the announcements here:

http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/11/21/nokia-asha-501-update-makes-it-new &

http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/11/21/whatsapp-for-asha-501/

 

Key changes compared to previous 10.0.xx SW versions include:

  • WhatsApp support added – after updating the software, tap the WhatsApp icon in the main menu to download the latest version of WhatsApp.
  • Over 5000 other apps available from Nokia Store, including Line, WeChat & Nimbuzz.
  • Usability improvements, such as single-swipe access to camera, single-touch share to Facebook and ability to track Facebook comments and likes right from your Fastlane screen.
  • Privacy improvements - delete items directly from Fastlane and control which apps you want to see on Fastlane.
  • Microsoft Exchange active sync support for office emails.
  • General improvements for phone stability and performance, alarm tone volume, Wi-Fi connectivity, video streaming, Chinese text input, and more.

 

By default your phone is set to automatically check for updates every 8 days and you will be notified when an update is available for download. If you want, it's possible to force the update check immediately by switching off and back on "Check via mobile data" setting from the “Phone update” menu.

 

The size of the update is around 8 MB, so it's recommended to use Wi-Fi for the download. Find the further update instructions from here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/new-nokia-asha-software-update

Cheers!

Re: New software update for Nokia Asha 501/501 Dual SIM: v. 11.1.1

@armagon: Hi! I am having a major problem after the update. I own a Nokia Asha 501 Dual SIM phone and connected through the wifi, got an update notification so I backed up my phone data and installed the update...The phone while updating showed a progress bar and when it was full, it shutdown. It didn't start on its own, so after waiting around an hour, I pressed the power button. The phone started up and the Nokia logo showed up dimming & glowing for half a minute, then the phone turned off and the same is happening every time I start it up and am unable to use or reset or the phone. What to do now? :smileysad:

chiragmarwaha:

 

can you send me your phone's IMEI number via private message? it's printed on the phone label sticker, visible after you remove the phone back cover and battery. we will check from the update server that what may have happened here.

 

but unfortunately the only way to recover from that status may be to take the phone to a Care service point for reflashing.

yes, the SW update includes with VoIP enablers as well. I'm not 100% sure if the correct app version is already available in Nokia Store, but sooner or later there should be a Nimbuzz version available for Asha 501 with VoIP support.

I've sent the IMEI Numbers. Waiting eagerly for a reply, if you discover something with that which might help me or should I just go and get it reflashed.

We will double-check that the update package you downloaded is ok, but this data will not help restoring your phone. So you should take the phone to a Care service point for reflashing.

Re: New software update for Nokia Asha 501/501 Dual SIM: v. 11.1.1

After updating Asha 501 following features have finally made it. though the list of pending features still remain.

 

Features in

 

- Whatsapp, Microsoft Office Exchange

 

- Now an option to clear a single Fastlane entry

 

- The Music Library search function now does not hide a significant portion of "search results" due to the pop up of the keyboard. As a result, it's easy to view the results.

 

- Facebook and Twitter app seems smooth with their notifications.

 

- "Alarms" sound is proper for custom music selected as "alarm tone"

 

- YES, Support for "Alarms" to work when the phone is switched off. 

 

Features left out
No Cut/Copy/Paste feature outside browsers for the documents viewed within them and from the app "Notes"
No feature to minimise opened apps and switch between them.
Can't delete pre-installed apps

Option for "Counters" to "Clear counters" daywise and not clear entire history to date

Support for custom "Wallpaper for home screen" to choose from Memory card/Phone Memory

Support for compression tools like .zip or .rar, etc.
Addition of "Battery icon" and display "date" on the pull down notification centre.

Support for higher file sizes to upload in Emails as attachments ( not more than 1.5 MB)

 

 

[TO BE VERIFIED]

Screen turns off completely while you are attending a call and requires to push "home" key. A better and easy approach to this is requested, mostly, keeping the screen ON always while the Call is active.
Java apps supported but no access to stuff online that requires java? Browsers lack support for Java plug-in
Support for Flash in Browsers to view /flv videos and play saved content

Works as promised by the Nokia Asha Software Platform 1.1 emulator (Nokia Asha 502). Now, I am able to install my own root certificate authority (CA), as well. Although, I have not tested AMR-WB (HD Voice) with my Nokia Asha 501, yet.

Nokia, very, very nice! :smileyvery-happy:

For language packs changes - I am afraid but we cannot just change the language pack as the phone is bound to a specific variant according to the region you bought it...
