  4. Thanks Paritosh. Better wait for some more time 🙂 Any idea..whats new in v32 update ? if you can write a brief on that, it will be great for the users. Thanks for the blog !! 🙂

  5. Hey, i need a dictionary for my nokia 5800 becoz the inbuilt dictionary doesnt provides a lot of words, it has Very Limited words..
    And i need a good dictionary that should be comprises of a treasure of words ..
    So plz paritosh, Help Mee !!

  6. As I have been saying before, it takes time for Nokia to push updates for phone all over the world. Some regions get it sooner than others. There are instances when certain update might not be pushed for specific countries, happened with Nokia 5230. If you WANT this update then the best way is to contact Nokia customer care and ask them about tentative date.

  7. Hi Paritosh

    No update for Nokia X6 16gB, i can see that nokia has mentioned the update v32 on their website. but neither my phone software updater nor the latest ovi suite shows any update available !! do you know what can be the issue ?

  8. I’ve heard that a new firmware is out for Nokia X6 RM-559 v32.0.0.2. Seems to be a heavy one (Around 120MB) . I wonder why I am not able to find it in software update list. Couldn’t find it either with Nokia OVI Suite. (Current version : v31.0.004)
    I am confused, whether trying updating with NaviFirm could result in a loss of obtaining future updates. May be I should wait.

  9. Wait for some more time. An update should be available. Keep an eye on software updater application installed in your phone to see if any update is available.

  10. Hey ..
    Wanna know dat any nokia 5800 xm user has updated his/her phone sucessfully..
    Is the update available??
    Because my ovi suit is not showing the update though i hv the latest ovi suit but still unsucessful..!! O.o

  11. i had no problems of this sort on updating via p.c before, do others also facing this problem.

  12. now my ovi suite is showing no internet connection when i clicked install phone software but it is connected.
    i’m connecting internet to pc through my phone only.
    what to do.

  13. Make sure you are using the latest version of Nokia Ovi Suite. Besides this I can’t think of a reason why you aren’t getting the update.

  14. ya but it is showing option of update via pc and ovi suite is not showing any phone update available.

  15. Nokia 5230, in India has received firmware update. Check your phone software app in your phone and see if Phone update is popping up there.

  16. Nokia doesn’t push the update for all phones at once. Wait for the firmware update to be pushed for your device. Also, which phone are you using?

  17. the software updater of my ovi suite is showing an update for Adobe flash lite but in my phone’s SW update is not showing that.
    Help

  18. Restore your phone to factor settings, take out external memory card and then do firmware update.

    P.S: Download latest version of Nokia Ovi Suite i.e 3.1.

  19. ya, phone is working fine,its still has previous version.tried many times. on every usb of my laptop.same error

  20. hello,paritosh hope u could help. i am getting an error regarding device recovery at the last stage of software instal.followed the instruction tht were shown, switch off\on the phone ,then connect the usb again, but again same error.

  21. I just installed raging thunder 2 hd game (19mb) and it too refused to run/open on my nokia 5233. So does this mean that any game with the word HD in their title wont run on my phone?
    Any phone under a budget of 10k which can run games like that?

  22. well then why that’s being displayed as for s60v5? And what platform its supposed to run on if not symbian?

  23. Try and reinstall phone software and this time use Ovi Suite. This actually never happens unless you disconnect phone in between update.

  24. sure. many other sites also show the size as this big.
    plunder.com/Asphalt-5-v-1-1-8-N8-Signed-Retail-by-max68-zip-download-031d575333.htm

  25. I don’t think so. You should be fine with that. And using internet connectivity of the device you are updating is not recommended bu you can try. I see no harm in doing so.

  26. Thanks for your answers.
    By the way today i saw asphalt 5 hd game, thought to download but the size was whopping 144mb. Are these games really that big? Will my phone nokia 5233 be able to run that?
    Thanks

  27. will it be a problem if i am trying to update my phone using software updater of Nokia PC suite instead of OVI suite???
    also will it be a problem if i use the internet connection of the same phone which i have to update??

  28. thanks but can i just remove the memory card instead of backing up? And is the installation update process insured of net disconnections?

  29. Hey Ady!
    Nokia pushes such software updates in a fixed patter i.e region wise, model wise, operator wise etc. Please wait for it. And believe me, it’s worth waiting for if you are into texting or mobile web browsing 😉

  30. 1. Install ovi suite on your pc.
    2. Backup your mobile phone.
    3. Check for new software/firmware update (ovi suite should do this automatically and notify you).
    4. If a phone update is available, install it. It’s of approx 148 MB size so be patient.

    I hope you’ll now be able to update your Nokia easily 🙂

  31. This update will be available for the models mentioned above. But the time taken for Nokia to push this update for a particular device cannot be commented on. I’ll suggest you to be patient and wait for it 🙂

  32. i appriciate you concern Mr. Paritosh.
    i own a X6 and a 5250.
    i’v tried the ovi suite method, the nokia software updater too
    but it tells me that there are no software updates available. plz if you could help me out.. i think the same prob. is face by Mr.Shivam…

  33. hello
    I see this update but dont understand the update method ie update via pc. pls enlighten me on this with the required steps.
    im quite new to symbian.
    thanks

  34. Hi Paritosh,
