Nokia N97 firmware V21/ thoughts/ bugs/ changelog

[ Edited ]

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..

 

 

Thanks

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 

"First thing I've noticed is my RAM has gone up. 45.7Mb with nothing running except Handy Taskman. Was approx 39 with v20" from scottb721

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.

Re: Nokia N97 firmware V21/ thoughts/ bugs/ changelog

many people say u have to reset but you actually dont need to. Even though it does make the phone faster but that is because it wipes your customized settings and restores it to the original when it first shipped

Guys guys guys!

Stop crying

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!

Re: Nokia N97 firmware V21/ thoughts/ bugs/ changelog

Just installed Java 2.0 didn't notice any visible change yet.
But what really makes me mad is that changed theme! I really pimped out my homescreen to look insanely well but with this brighter widgets background its really rubbish! And bacground of widgets ain't all. Also in dark theme wallpapers when you run through menus changed into pure black. Before it was kind of dark grey. Sorry but now it just don't look right... =/

(Not really technical problem huh? :smileytongue: But the way it looks and feels is important as well... )

Re: Nokia N97 firmware V21/ thoughts/ bugs/ changelog

MAJOR BUG!

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! :smileysad:
