My music player does not have the problem mentioned with the Back button.
My FW version is 20.2.019 with N97 NAM RM-507. I think it changes between EURO/NAM version.

Nokia have given updates to firmware v31 on the 5800 and it's a damn good phone now but effectively complete. It will never get an update with kinetic scrolling in the OS, although apps such as profimail for S60V5 have implemented their own kinetic scrolling.

Before if you touched the screen with a swiping movement it was interpreted as a scroll - not any more...

Only way to use it is by opening the keyboard and using d-pad :(

ok, that because your ovi store is outdated
just go to downloads to fix this problem

Awesome Update!

Been anxiously waiting for this one!

I did run into some issues when updating, I left it to update, but towards the end Software Update reported it had lost connection to the device and that I had to reconnect, and then it failed completely with an 'Internal Error' or something. I don't know if this was to do with my phone or me using Windows 7, it seemed to be linked with Windows 7 trying to install the device drivers several times during the update, interrupting the phone.

Anyway, once I got this error, I pulled the battery, did a Hard Reset of the phone (http://mynokiablog.com/2009/07/18/ho...our-nokia-n97/) and the update reported it was finished onscreen and ready to use! All seems good now!

What I find strange is that we were promised several news apps and Widgets, but can't see anything new other than Vlingo.

Angry UK N97 updated

UK based SIM free N97 updated

Only issue is the map data needs updating...
Licence needs updating...
and when you try to re-load map data via ovi-suite [USB] you get an internal unknown error.

nice, glad have got another N97 as backup.

makes an expensive paper weight.

Thanks for getting my hopes up. Have an unbranded white N97 UK variant (variant in that it's identical to the EURO model but with a sticker on the back that says "Nokia - please kick me"...)

30 minutes of backing up my settings (how on earth it can take this long is beyond me) after Ovi Suite told me I wasn't using the correct cable (um - it's the one that came in the box with NOKIA written all over it...) and several in-out-in-out-in-outs until the N97 was recognised and I get...

wait for it...

"Your device is up to date".

OOOOFFFF!!!

And now I read that Mr Litchfield is basing his article on NGage and Maps on the RDA version.

If he can get v20 on his unbranded N97, I would like to know why I can't.

Equally, if he can't, please can he add his name to the list of people feeling incredibly let down by Nokia in terms of the way they treat their UK customers.

Before anyone jumps to conclusions:

1) The N97 isn't anywhere near as bad as the haters make out. When it works, it's the best phone I've ever owned.

2) The vids I've seen of v20 make it look as tasty as it should have been in the first place if it wasn't rushed to market. And if SHIFT_FN brings COPY/PASTE back to the keyboard - woohoo!

but...

3) Nokia's blatant disregard for early adopters such as myself who went out of their way to pick up an unbranded handset to avoid the rigmarole that I went through with a branded N95 is a disgrace.

Especially when "early adopter" in this case means buying a phone with bugs that still aren't fixed 4 months down the line, being promising widgets galore and getting pretty much sweet FA bar a Facebook widget that gets "internal errors" and requires a phone restart and a photo album app that continually f#cks it's own database meaning that on a phone with 500 photos it has the gall to tell me I've taken none. Thank @%#£ I'm Symbian savvy and have downloaded the PhotoBrowser app or I'd be thinking that my £500 would have been better spent on a holiday and a 2nd hand 6230... Actually, come to think of it...

bluetooth headset

Experienced the following on firmware v1 & v2: connecting bluetooth headset during an active call drops the call. Same headset works fine on N95-3. anyone else experiencing this?

I have been waiting for this update too but even if I have an unbranded scandinavian phone when I try to update I get the message that there are no updates for me.

Now however, after reading the comments of other N97 users who have updated to v. 2.0 , NOT ONE of which is statisfied with the updated version, I wonder if it would'nt be better to stay with my v. 1.2, which at least is working.

I surely don't want to update to get even more troubles from this piece of cXXp.
Besides I have just downloaded Vlingo from OVI (I like it) and I have the very latest ovi map installed with a full year of free subscription (donated by Nokia DK).

So I would like to ask to all those who have already installed the newest ROM a simple question:
"If you could go back in time, would you still choose to install OM v.2.0 on your N97 ?"

Or to put it in another way:
Would you recomand to those who still haven't updated to v 2.0 to wait until the bugs are (hopefully) ironed out, or maybe to postpone indefinitely the upgrade because what we would get with v. 2.0 is even worse of what we got now?
