- 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.
