Nokia N97 firmware V21.0.045 is now available to download via Nokia Software Updater now.
The size is 133.7mb for (RM-505) models.
Anyone discovered a bug or want to share their thoughts please post here.
Greatly appreciate an unofficial changelog.
UK people still have not received it yet which is weird..

Ok now i've restarted the n97 and so far the kinetic scrolling doesn't seem to be improved, it is more choppy then the previous firmware.
Note: Free Ovi Maps is not included in the firmware
The unofficial changelog
-Homescreen loads faster
-Auto-rotation is much more snappy
-Overall the device is faster
-Kinetic scrolling has improved in some places but other areas, kinetic scrolling has degraded
-Not much visible improvements in the music app so far as well as the video player
- Photo viewing and flicking through photos is quicker
-No visible changes in the Settings
-Applications in general load quicker
-Web browser loads pages more quicker
The unofficial bug list
-Kinetic scrolling has degraded in places like the *Calender app or Settings*
-Music Application still has a bug *Playing a music and sliding out the keyboard then pressing the down button is supposed to turn down the volume but instead it restarts the music, same applies for the up button*
So far that is what i've discovered.

Guys guys guys!
Just do one thing ... Go to nokia beta labs and download Java 2.0 Beta for N97
Once installed reboot and try your phones and then come here and post!
after installing v21, my access points were gone. and further more, i couldnt reinstall them.
hence, everytime i try surfing the web, i have to research for wireless wifi. i could not find any 3G data connectivity access point.
my carrier sent me the set up sms again, it didnt work.
my MfE is now crippled. i tried to uninstall and reinstall it. that didnt help. when i get to "access point" and try to set it up, nothing happens.
Great work nokia!
