Change to product code 0542531 and you will be able to get the latest 4.0747.31.0.1 firmware :)

richbowen 27-02-2008 07:30 PM

OK so I just changed my product code using Nemisis and used NSU to update :)

Not too bad runs a tad faster

I now have un un removable English-Chinese Dictionary though =/ and the camera noise cannot be turned of :(

doctorjeep71 27-02-2008 07:38 PM

@richbowen:

I'm thinking about upgrading, can you advise to what you've noticed on the new FW please?

thanks!

richbowen 27-02-2008 07:57 PM

The new firmware is undeniably faster :)

I have 17mb free RAM unlike my old FW where I had 15mb

Its overall a lot smoother :)

BUT if you dont like your camera making noise when a photo is taken do not upgrade, because you can NOT turn it off with this firmware.

But other than that I would go for it :D

doctorjeep71 27-02-2008 09:01 PM

Thanks .. any other changes you notice would be greatly appreciated :icon14:

Can you tell me with this firmware whether the flashing curser is still present in the call box when making a call? Is this firmware for the regular N73 or the Music Edition?

Hello all
 
Dear all,
I just updated my N73 Black edition
V3.06 RM 133 (India) to V 4.07
Here are a my experiences-

Imporverments Noticed!--

1. RAM management is better, Sometimes keeps terminating Apps in background;But Much better better than before no Doubt ! :)

2.All photos now zoom upto 800 %, Zoom is smoother and stable.

3. Whole gallery feels much faster

4. Camera startup is much faster and Stable too! Flat in 4 seconds, 6 seconds first shot to be exact!

5. 19 MB free ram on BOOT.

6. Low light images far better. Just use 'night potrait' mode

Actually, Whole phone is Pleasingly faster and stable!

Annoyances/ Bugs left out in this Firmware- (Nokia ! Please listen Carefully!)-


1. I read somwhere on the internet that this Firmware brings Search 4.0. However what I got was a very stupid Web search! I un-installed this app instantly as its pretty useless.I downloaded the Search 4.0 from nokia site, but it threw up and Incompatiblity error.

3. There is High-pitched whine (Whistle like) when Mobile is connected to my 8 Channel speaker using 3.5mm Jack. This is simply disgusting!

4.The uninstall links for ALL apps and THEMES on the memort card are gone! its so difficult to un-install those themes now!

6. I've lost quite a few Apps that were installed. Thebackup coul'dnt restore them.

7. there is a slight diffrence between Autofocus sound and actual focus.
Similarly, there is disparency between Actual shutter release and Shutter sound.Sound comes before action. This problem was not present on older firmware.

8. The RAM still leaks a lot. It falls down to 8~9 MB after using a few apps and quitting them.

9.Sequence mode is still useless. It takes random number of shots and shuts down.

10.large Images sometimes do not load in gallery, A small red cross appears instead.

11.More noise in viewfinder, Final results are better tough.

12.Graphic Equalizer messed up. All presets are shown as 'Flats' no matter what the effect.

World-known (in)Famous stupidities by nokia-

One minute time limit for audio recording

One hour Video recorder limit no matter free space.

Unable to use LED light as torch (Oh come on!)

(Horror! Horror!)
Unable to share .sis , .jar, Ringtones and Music(Mp3 and WAV) through bluetooth!
And yes, Nokia still has the tag 'Connecting people' and 'Sharing redifined!'
Heck ! I can't even send some of my tones to my friend! Very GOOD Dear nokia ! (Pun Explicitly intednded!)

7. many people say, But phone does not feel faster at all. Its all and the same.

Can you tell me about the flashing curser during calls? Is it still there when making a call?

richbowen 28-02-2008 02:34 PM

Also with this firmware you lose the abilty to play songs in a random order from a playlist =/

richbowen 28-02-2008 03:53 PM

Ok I have solved the problem I metioned before! For shuffle:

1) Open the music player
2) Select Artists
3) Select the Bands name
4) Play one of the songs
5) Choose 'options'
6) Shuffle 'on'
7) Close the music player

Very long way to do it but it works and makes all playlists play in a random ord

Upgraded mine to 4.0747.31.0.1 last night mainly cos I was interested in getting more free RAM.
I ended up with 20MB free instead of 15MB.
Certainly speeded the phone up.

Reinstalled all apps I had from the PC Suite backup, bar one; Slick messenger which was no problem to reinstall.

It's not an ME firmware upgrade though because the multimedia key is back now, replacing the dedicated Music Key from the diamond.
Accordingly Stave and Waveform themes have gone.

Fonts are bigger/blockier than previous too but overall I'm happy wth more RAM and quicker SMS/Contacts/Camera/Gallery access times

Cursor still flashing in call box which has never bothered me as the phone is against your ear when you're calling :)

doctorjeep71 28-02-2008 08:05 PM

Can you post some screen shots of the new fonts? text size?

Also - would you confirm that the new FW is BETTER than the previous?

lastly - what languages do you have now?
