Nokia X2-01 software update

Hey Nokians as you know there is a new
firmware available for my device. And i
want to update my device with this new
firmware. But I have one question to ask,
before i update. I have .jar app called '' life
remarks '' installed on my phone memory. I
use it as a personal diary. I know it will be
removed from my phone once i update my
device. So i want to know if i move the app
temporarily on my memory card, and re-
transfer it to my phone after the update,
will it work like before? will the application
data remain unchanged? Please let me know, as
this application is too important for m

Hi AkshDey, 

 

Thanks for your post. 

 

Before you update your device, please back up the data via Nokia Suite. Download the program from this link: 

 

http://www.nokia.com/gb-en/support/product/nokia-suite/

 

Then connect your device to your PC via USB cable, open the program and go to Tools > Back up. In the back up steps make sure you also tick "Apps and settings". This will back up all the applications from your device (saved in the C: memory), including the data saved in them (such as levels etc...)

Once your data is fully back up, just select the Updates tab and download the available update. 

Note that you can also always download again any app purchased from Nokia Store from "My Stuff" which you can find in Nokia Store once signed in. 

 

Let us know how you get on and feel free to post any other questions you may have. 

 

Regards,

Re: Nokia X2-01 software update

I dont have a fast internet connection right now, so i have to update it from Nokia Care. What i can do is to back up the data, but is it possible that Nokia suit would back up any 3rd party app data?

Connect your phone to a computer & select Nokia Suite mode. If you do not have Nokia Suite on your pc you can download it from here. Now open the Nokia Suite & click on the “green icon of arrow pointing downwards”.

If any updates are available they will be shown in ‘green’. If not you may reinstall the current version. Reinstall option is shown in ‘blue’. If no option to reinstall is shown, please wait for sometime it will become visible.  Then the Nokia Suite will download the new software version of the phone. After it you will be prompted to take a complete back up of the device content. Please do not skip this step as reinstallation will erase all the personal data from the phone like contacts, messages, calendar entries etc.

Please note that if you have set a memory card password & you have forgotten its code then take a backup of the card data also as the card will be locked after update and can only be unlocked if you enter the correct code or by ways mentioned in this thread.

Also note that while updating the device ensure the following things-

  1. The device is full charged.
  2. The internet connection Is of good speed & has a backup in case of power loss.
  3. The PC should also be connected to back up power source as if the process is interrupted the phone may go dead. More on update failure & its remedies here.
  4. Please do not run any resource intensive programs in the background while updating as it may freeze the PC which in turn will lead to a dead device.
  5. Ignore all the windows pop-up notifications about device being disconnected.

DO NOT DISCONNECT THE PHONE UNTIL UPDATE IS COMPLETED.

  1. It will be better if you disable security keyguard & PIN code request before proceeding with Update/Reinstallation.
  2. Sometimes the device may show Test Mode. Do not panic & DO NOT remove the cable. Let the process complete.

Also check out this video on YouTube with instructions for update.

Re: Nokia X2-01 software update

Hey,

 

I can confirm that 8.70 is indeed the latest available SW update for the device. There are no further SW releases planned for it at the moment (this is already around 2 years old device).

Re: Nokia X2-01 software update

Hi wittVikki,

 

Welcome to Nokia Forum!

 

The latest software version posted is for all X2-01 handsets. And each handset, there are sets of product codes which is one of the determining factors for the availability of the update aside from the region and the operator the handset is tied up with. Software updates are being released in batches. There is no specific date as to when these updates will be available. If the update is not yet available, the best action is still to wait for it.

Yes it is .. Also the Product Code. ..and further, if the device is locked to any Network, update is possible only after an approval from the Operator ...
