Nokia N97 Fimrware confirmed as Hackable

Nokia N97This is just a quick heads up for those of you who haven't seen Esilance's forum post about the long awaited and highly anticipated firmware update (20.2.019) for the Nokia N97.

Latest firmware update for company's flagship device is now available as FOTA update and through Nokia Software Updater as well for most of the generic product codes from EMEA and APAC region and is expected to be available for the rest of the world as well as for NAM and branded devices shortly.

Firmware v20 improves touch screen usability, allowing you to scroll smoothly through content by flicking the screen. Ovi Maps 3.1 brings 3-D maps, more accurate positioning, and improved search. Nokia e-mail, Ovi Contacts, Ovi Store, and VoIP support have been added. This release also includes improvements in memory and battery performance, and in image and video stability.

Last but not the least, new software is CONFIRMED AS HACKABLE with the latest available method, s so there is really no reason not to update it.

Oh yes, one more thing, Nokia N97 comes with UDP support but it is anyway highly suggestible to back up your phone memory before performing a firmware update as precaution measure in case something goes wrong.

To get this software through your device, select Applications > SW Updates and choose the software you want to update. Alternatively, this software release is available through the Nokia Software Updater.
