Updating firmware on my E71

After ensuring that the new firmware is working properly with other users who were adventurous enough to install the update I have finally set out to update my firmware.

  • One has to ensure that all the data is backed up using the backup facility of PC suite
  • Ensure that you have the latest version of the Nokia updater. If not then you can download the latest version here.
  • Make sure that your phone has enough charge (battery) so that it will last the whole update and
  • your phone has the General Profile activated.

I started the update and at the start I got a phone call on my phone. I was confused. I took the call and the call went off well. However, when I finished the Nokia Updater returned an error saying that the update failed :-(

I have started the update again though in half an hour I have to pick my daughter from school. I will post an update on the firmware update once it is done.

Finally managed to installed the firmware to my E71 after 3 failed firm updates! My phone appears to be working fine though I will fully test it later and post the update on that by tomorrow.

so how is it going?

I have tried the same but it fails telling me that the updater lost its connection with the phone. (my phone is connected with the usb)
