Nokia E71 firmware update

About every 2 weeks I backup my phone and in the same effort see if there is a firmware update from Nokia. Because of a few glitches in the current (original) firmware I was hopeful Nokia was listening.

  • 5 to 10 sec unresponsiveness (once or twice a week)
  • spontaneous reboot when using mostly in addressbook (once a month)
  • inability to enter addressbook, quits immediately (3 times in 6 months)
  • WPA and WPA2 authentication does not work (luckily dd-wrt can have different auth on a single AP)

And today I found the shiny new v110.07.127 firmware update ready to be installed. Time will tell if those glitches are gone. (The WPA problem still exists for me) Does the new firmware feel much more interactive, or is my mind playing tricks on me again ?

After the firmware upgrade and restoring the backup I did loose some applications. I don't know why exactly, it seems that the applications on my phone's memory were either not backupped, or not restored :-(
