If that's all then I'm really disappointed. I have use of the following new features:

- Support for Microsoft Windows Media Player 10 has been added (No
support for DRM)
- Adobe PDF Reader has been added
- FOTA (Firmware Over The Air) pull is enabled in some variants

And I'm looking forward to these bugs being fixed:

- Bluetooth. Improvements to stability of long term connections
- Browser memory usage reduction when browsing many sites
/ Stop browser loading images when memory low
- Fix for memory card missing on soft reset
- USB mass storage class doesn't detach from Apple MAC/Tiger

But I have a list of about 30 other problems which are not addressed in this list from what I can understand. I still hope that that the bugs in the list above will influence the bugs I have. But from experience, I don't have that much hope. The worst bugs left are:

- Too late handover from 3G to GSM in case of bad 3G signal
- Address book sorts on last names first
- The phone doesn't list people I have sent sms's to before
- I can't change labels on contacts (eg. from the phone symbol to the mobile symbol) - I have to remove and re-add
- No support for normal size (= bigger) contact pictures
- Browser don't remember uid and pwd
- Browser can't read wap pages
- Browser has no cache
- Tens of WLAN problems
- Ability to play H.264 files v 1.3
- Too big font in e-mails and no line scroll - only page scroll
- No tag recognition for AAC music files
- No torch function

When self flashing the firmware on the n80 will operator settings (orange) i.e mms and wap connection details be erased?

Based on my experience from self flashing my 6680, I don't think they will. If however this proves not to be the case you can have them resent to your mobile for free from the Nokia website - http://www.nokia.co.uk/nokia/0,,77073,00.html

What Files exactly did you use?

Did it select them automatically for you? If you have succesfully flashed the phone where can I find the Anti virus software. Mines flashed but the anti virus seems to be missing. Also the PDF etc.

Please tell me what files exacty you used. Thanks

flashing as i write this, im scared ;X

*update* flashed successful, real easy, just follow the guide ;]
my calander entry's were all in tact, the date was off, but they were all there, contacts all there, this is still without sim/minisd card inserted.

the follow features i do not see, if anybody can point them out?

- Adobe PDF Reader has been added
- Mobile Search has been added
- Antivirus has been added

i found no such thing, havent tested wmv files yet, and the info from *#0000# is

V 4.0623.0.41
26-07-2006
RM-92
Nokia N80 (07)

i find the date to be a little odd.

WMV and PDF files are not recognized either, those new features lists are complete shit, does anybody have a real list?

looking at flashing myself..dont like my (not-so) local service centre
However can anyone confirm that bluetooth GPS software works?
I have firmware v3.0614.0.3 which currently works fine with gps.
I don't want to flash yet just incase
Did people upgrade use the megaupload file from this thread with pheonix?
Thanks

Hi guys,
Out of interest what does the 78682635 mean at the front of the downloaded file? I'm guessing EMEA is Europe, middle east and asia so should work perfectly in UK?

Has anyone got any practical reports of improvement yet?

I have generic firmware on an unlocked phone from 02 that i recieved - does this still mean that i'll have to pay £15 to get it upgraded at a SC to generic? If i had an 02 branded firmware what are the disadvantages and can i still use my 3 sim in it until my number is ported ok?
Regards
