New firmware update Nokia N97 to V22.0.110 (updated with changelog)

On my twitterfeed, @Sheridan01 mentionoed he was updating his N97. It wasn’t the wrongly publicised V30 that Nokia mistakingly said was available, but a new firmware update is available nonetheless,  from v21.0.045 to v22.0.110.

I did mine OTA, just hit *#0000# and update from there. It’ll take 5 minutes depending on your connection.

Not checked yet whether this is available via NSU and data cable, but most likely it is (or will be). Not sure when this came out but it’s new to me. 🙂

As for changes: haven’t checked yet, nothing major. Will update this post when I find the changelog.

  • Is Maps 3.04 there by default? Not sure as I already had it.No 3.4/3.04
  • It seems a minor touch faster, menu pretty instant before the button is properly released it changes.
  • Boots up a bit quicker than the 50+ second v21  (took ages when using custom theme, 70+seconds, then it reverted to default black and is now booting faster at 35seconds)

Update: Official Changelog from Norman John from SymbianWorld at end of this post

It’ll restart and your screen will change into the first image above. Then after booting, you’re on v22.0.110

Have you updated your N97? Noticed any changes? Maybe your operator hasn’t even let you go past v20, if so what firmware are you on?

    I was already disappointed with firmware 21, so was anticipating fixes in version 22.
    And what do you think? they actually managed to introduce MORE bugs on firmware 22.

    to mention a few:
    – Charging of Battery now takes more than 12 hours, was only 4 hours with the old firmware.
    – After finishing a call, the screen switches to ‘Landscape’ mode and gets stuck there. Only after opening the lid, it changes back to ‘portrait’ mode.
    – flashing screen. as soon as you touch the phone the screen flashes and sometimes even spontaneously opens a different application.

    Anybody else having the same problems?
