Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

@ Skyee

When is Nokia going to release the Romanian Country Variants:

059D918: N8-00 RM-596 Country Variant Romania RO DARK GREY V1

059D9Q5: N8-00 RM-596 Country Variant Romania RO GREEN V1_COLOR

059D9P2: N8-00 RM-596 Country Variant Romania RO SILVER WHITE V1_COLOR

They are the SIM FREE variants and more than a month has passed since PR 1.1 is available and there is no word about the update for these variants

And I would like to point out that these SIM FREE variants are the only ones that are sold in Romania at all the major retailers except the SIM Locked versions from Orange and Vodafone the generic versions from the excel spreadsheet are not sold in Romania probably in Russia and Bulgaria according to their name (Example: 0599772: russian_dg_bulgaria_romania)

So what is the actual reason that is stopping Nokia from releasing or making the update?

Hi mariandag,

 

I've been chasing for those versions for quite some time already as well. As soon as we have an answer on when they will be available I'll post it here.

Hello Yvonne, I was wondering if there are a list of the fixes included in the PR 1.1  It will be great if you can post a link so everyone that want to know what to expect from the new firmware had a easy way to find it, thanks.

Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule



So.....after waiting for over a month for PR1.1 to be released to Australia, you have shafted us.



Congratulations Nokia. You are AWESOME! </sarcasm>



Why can't you just release PR1.1 for us? and send the MfE update to us via software update.


THERE IS NO REASON IN THE WORLD WHY YOU CANNOT PROVIDE US WITH PR1.1!!!!!!!!!

IF YOU CANNOT EVEN GIVE US AUSTRALIAN USERS PR1.1 THEN HOW THE HELL CAN WE EVER HAVE ANY HOPE OF GETTING PR2 or PR3?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!



Yes I WAS yelling, yes I am VERY frustrated. Please do not tell me to uncaps.

Nokia said It will be available on Tuesday, just checked and it's not available this Tuesday, maybe it will be out next week Tuesday or the Tuesday following that or on a Tuesday in 2015... Its a surprise Tuesday update :smileyvery-happy:, just keep checking every Tuesday:smileywink:, its almost like the lottery.

Hey Capers2011,

 

What's the product code of your N8.

 

If it is 059C7Q4, how did you update?

I've been trying since I saw your post yest and all day today.

Absolutely no joy getting the update.

 

Will probably will try reinstalling the initial Firmware then try again.

Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

Now that we are PR 1.2, and the release for Australian mobiles was promised for today (Tuesday 22 March 2011), I can proudly say that the Telstra N8 model 059D776 was not released today.

 

Nokia, if the issue is indeed Telstra, can you please say so, that way their customers can log warranty claims against the carrier, and if needs be, get the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman in for not supporting the phones they sell.  As a previous poster has said, Telstra representative know nothing about the product updates.  

As it currently stands, I am never buying a Nokia ever again - and am only begrudgingly with Telstra due to their network coverage.

Re: Official Nokia N8 PR1.1 Software Release Schedule

PR1.2 update arrived for 059C951.

It was only 906kb, maybe because I had PR1.1 already.

Not noticed any changes to the working of phone though.

It's not yet available via Ovi suite yet.
