5800 - upgrading firmware

I had a nice blue 5800 delivered by Nokia on the 22nd Feb.

It had v10 firmware and no iplayer

I was frustrated that nokia's software updater did not update to v11, so I tried going to:

settings->phone->phone mgmt->device updates
options->check for updates

and hey presto! it downloaded the v11 firmware over the air and updated the phone.

so just a tip that you can do this and it works. Make sure the battries are full though

still can't find iplayer

I still can't update mine, even through the above method. Keeps saying I have the lastest version - 10.0.010

I've noticed under one of the options where the device update is, something about server profiles. Would this affect it because I don't seem to have a profile on there.

Any ideas?

I have no server profiles either

My language set is 01 and my type is RM-356

the new firmware was 11.0.008.blue.01

Interestingly it kept my contacts and my settings after the upgrade. However it lost the installed programs.

tip: did you have a SIM card in (which network?) and was the phone the "General" profile ?

I've tried it both when I've been on General, and just now on Silent (I'm at work)

I've tried it with my current SIM card in, which is Vodafone. Also tried my partners o2 SIM card in it. No luck :(

the JAF emulator which you need for installing the custom anna 7.9 on your Nokia 5800. the procedure is really simple, and if you want, i will upload a video on youtube on how to do it. you will need both of these files i have provided in the links below:
