Nokia 5800: Firmware v21.0.025 available (with changelog)

28. April 2009 at 21:24

After a new firmware was available for a limited number of 5800 Xpress Music only, now v.21 is also available for other product codes finally. Currently, version v.21.0.025 can be downloaded over the air only but I assume that version will be available through the Nokia Software Updater in due course. As the 5800 features User Data Preservation all data and information will stay on your device but it’s never bad to back-up all content. To get this update, simply type *#0000# on your phone, and then choose Options, Check for Updates. Until yet I haven’t found any changes but I expect some bugs have been fixed as well as general improvements. As soon as I discover changes, bugs etc. I’ll update this post.
