Nokia 7230 Firmware v 10.81

I recently updated my Nokia 7230 firmware from v9.83 to v10.81 and completed it successfully. But after the update, i was no longer able to open my nokia browser, view any pictures, and each time i customize my settings like re-arrange the main menu, restarting the phone again will disorganise everything. I can't even synchronise with PC suite coz it ain't detected...but i can use other PC suite features like transfer files. The phone memory cannot even be accessed now. Pliz help..can i undo the update or format the phone safely?

Re: Nokia 7230 Firmware v 10.81

Your phone being an S40..its not possible to do Soft / Hard Resets..Remove the battery and the Memory Card.. Insert only the battery and switch the phone ON.. See for any difference... Switch OFF..insert the Memory card.. then try again..

Last you may try re-installing the firmware...

How did you try ? OVI Suite will give you an option to Re-install...NSU ( New Beta version available at Beta Labs) also has this option...

You may try the Nokia Software Updater ..

... and would also request you to post the issue of OVI Suite (Beta) at the Beta Labs site..

Re: Nokia 7230 Firmware v 10.81

It is impossible to reinstall software, because it says that phone is not supported. What did Nokia do with this software ?  It's the first time that happends.... :smileysad:    I mean, obviously i'm not the only case.  Alot of things are missing from applications, calculator, browser are among, pictures cannot be opened, it just won't save preferences or anything.... I have to say, i'm largely dissapointed.

Re: Nokia 7230 Firmware v 10.81

This firmware version v10.81 has now actually rendered my camera useless, coz i cant view any pictures i take.... it just keeps saying "please wait" when u try to open a picture, but nothing seems to happen. Is there any way to re-install the previous firmware v9.83?

Re: Nokia 7230 Firmware v 10.81

Isn't there any way to adress this issue directly to Nokia Corp..??? Coz it looks like lots of us are affected by this.... This Firmware version should be taken off the internet coz it's killing our nokia phones.....

Looks like we may have to find new phone brands that have bug-free firmwares, other than Nokia..!!

I agree with you.I think they are making software updates for fun.I never found an improved perfomance after software update.Nokia must make a fast solution for it.I am lossing my hope in nokia.

NOKIA Co give us 7230-1c driver, so we can reinstall firmware.
OS recognize phone as Nokia Portable Device because of a missing driver.
Hope You'll help us :smileywink:

Hi,

 

It is strange that even with the same sw you are not able to update your phone.

 

The only way then to update your phone is to visit the nearest Nokia Care Point.

 

To find your nearest Nokia Care Point, visit http://www.nokia.com/support and select the Repair page.
