Nokia N86 8MP gets updated to firmware 30.009

Nokia N86 8MP gets updated to firmware 30.009One Nokia device that I personally really enjoy using because it is rock solid and has a great camera is the Nokia N86 8MP. We last saw a major firmware update to version 20 in September 2009 and according to the guys at All About Symbian there is now a version 30 update available via Nokia Software Update (NSU). The update is reported to be coming OTA eventually, but you should be able to update now via a cabled connection to your PC. As always, these updates vary by region so I am not sure when you will actually see it. I plan to try updating the N86 8MP I have tonight.

This version 30.009 update is described as a maitenance update with the following change log improvements:

  • includes the latest Ovi Maps 3.3
  • includes the sharing of location via Facebook
  • Nokia Messaging improvements
Steve recommends performing a hard reset and starting fresh with your device with an update like this rather than updating “in place” since there are some major firmware updates in Ovi Maps and Nokia Messaging and keeping existing versions on your phone may mess things up. I do like to occasionally perform a hard reset and fresh start on my devices and this may be a good time to do it.

There are very few of these type of phone centric smartphones in the US today, but I think they still serve as a valuable tool and the N86 is one of the best.

to jat try to uninstall the old software updater from pc and delete the installer and re download and reinstall it again it will work. you can update from phone also but its not preferable to do so . try it through the pc first if not useful try it from the mobile:)…

kindly elaborate on hard reset. How do I do it, safely without messing up my Lovable N86. It had a glitch recently trying to connect to Internet via mobile despite my disabling it in Connectivity. And whenever I use maps, it keeps on askin to connect via WLAN, WAP, etc., repeatedly… arghhh, it wasnt like this before the firmware update 30.009

Matthew Miller, Thanks for the posted info.

I have had an N86 8MP for 16 months now and happy with it. I have tried to update it but the mobile service provider in Mexico (TelCel, aka “cash cow” for Carlos Slim, wealthiest man on earth) has it restricted. I still have 20.115 from Sept 21, 2009. Any suggestions on how to get around that? Obviously, the regular upgrade mechanisms (either from the mobile or from the PC) just don´t work. Thanks again.
