gerrymoth’s N97 Updated to Firmware v11.0.021

1 07 2009

scr000008.jpg I’ve just updated the Euro Generic N97 I have to Firmware v11.0.021 from the phone using the Phone Device Updater.

Will have a good play with it and let you know what I think soon.

Okay I’ve had a quick play around with the new firmware and here are my intial thoughts:

  • The keylock/screenlock at the side of the N97 now actually works 1st time, every time and with the N97 locked when you slide the keyboard out the screen now unlocks and illuminates ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Album Art still using the wrong images selected in Music Player ๐Ÿ˜ฆ
  • Overall N97 stability feels better and the homescreen is behaving so far ๐Ÿ™‚
  • Still getting “Download Failed” when trying to download and install anything in OVI Store application ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

I must say I do LOVE Firmware Over The Air (FOTA) updates, downloaded, installed, restared phone and that’s it. All done in about 5 minutes.

Hi Wordmobi, when I try and debrand my N97 I can ge tthe device info in NSS but when I scan for Phone Info I get “Scan for product… Error!”. Any ideas? I’m running Windows 7 and the phone seemed to appear and install ok when I connected it…

Many thanks, Jon.

NSS doesn’t work with 5th Edition phones, you’ll need to use JAF, I’ve got instructions for it on one of my 5800XM FW update posts.

Ah I see… thanks gerrymoth, I’ll read up on your post.

I’m a newcomer to S60 5th so still finding myself around it.

Keep up the good work! Jon.

All I get when I try to update is “No updates available”. I’ve got the US model… does that make a difference?

Gerrymoth, just a thought. I had “download failed” using ovi store on my N95 8gb using my usual “O2 MobileWeb” access point. The web part of OVI still worked and I was able to view all the apps. “o2 mobileweb” is the access point I use for all my data including youtube, iplayer (hacked), mobbler etc.

When I changed my access point for ovi store to “O2 Active”, everything worked fine including downloads. I don’t know if you have alternate access points you could try through your provider. Cheers

Hi, I too have the problem where downloading on Ovi store it says download failed. Does anyone know how to combat this?

Thanks a million,

Rick

Only way I got round fixing this was to uninstall the OVI Store and only use the web browser based OVI Storre to install things.

Do you mean download it onto the computer from the ovi website? Because I can only see a button to send text to mobile :–(

i did a hard rest by pressing *#7370# then 12345.

i cant seem to update to v1 firmware, ovi downloads the update then says internal error and don’t install. anyway around this? and i cant seem to get it over the air, SW update says system update, but when i click it it said to download via pc?

cheers.
