Updating nokia e51
So, go to Nokia's website and download and install the Nokia Software Updater. This will update the phone with the latest version of the firmware and then restart it.The whole procedure will take about 10 minutes plus the download time (a few minutes on a fast broadband connection). You now have an unbranded N95 with all the bells and whistles of the original software and without all the advertising and restrictions imposed by your network operator. Then choose to restore a previously made backup and select the backup file you made just now.Note that by proceeding with the upgrade in the manner described hereafter you will void the warranty on your handset and you may lose some operator-specific functions. One method they have of protecting them is by installing customized firmware into the phones that they provide to their subscribers.
So, fire it up and you'll get a rather unassuming window like this: Click on the "Scan" button in the top-right corner, the one that looks like a magnifying glass, and you'll get a faceful of information.For example, at the time of writing this, the latest version of the firmware for T-Mobile's N95 is v14.0.001 while the vanilla version available now is v21.0.016.The product code is the code that identifies the model of the phone, the network that provided it and the region in which it was sold (in order to have the correct languages installed).This is made very easy because it's printed on the label in the battery compartment!You just have to remove the battery compartment cover and take the battery out in order to get to it.
