if anyone didn't notice, v21 has shortned a GPS fix. when A-GPS is on, it now locks satellite within 30 seconds (provided you are in open space). previously it was used to be around 1 minute. and if AGPS is turned off, it takes maximum 3 minutes to lock position.. in v12, this time was used to be infinite with possiblity of failure in satellite lock. GPS is lot improved and bugs are fixed. this change was made in v20 of 5230 itself and them carried in v21.
marginal time decrease between auto UI rotation is biggest noticeable improvement in v21.
some under the hood changes are flash lite 3.1 (from 3.0) so it supports h264 codec (of limited resolution), latest JAVA runtime envioroment, tweaking in music EQ and camera mode settings etc. SDKs have been improved with more optimization with processor so applications take less time to open and close especially messaging/contacts/calender menu.
btw, when you guys install 5230s software on 5235, make sure you have latest version (v11.4) of ovi music application is installed. old version says device not supported after changing firmware.. i already have latest ovi music application on my 5235 (with 5230's firmware) and unlimited music service works for me as usual.
do you guys know what nokia have to do to update 5235? they just have to take base firmware of 5230 and change its bluetooth and device ld to 5235 and change camera exif file device id to 5235 and push this update to all 5235 product codes.. its a two minute work for their engineeres but they are lazy, ignorant.. shame on you nokia..

It requires Microsoft .NET framework installed on PC to work. Be sure you have installed it first otherwise download and install it and then use Navifirm. Navifirm tracks all data directly from Nokia servers and you can also download firmwares using it and then can install it using JAF (all if NSU fails to do its job)

Manu, 14 Aug 2010Hi Anuj, can you please suggest why my phone software updater (under applications) is unabl to... moreChange back the product code to any of Indian 5230 (because I am sure scribble is available to these product codes) and then change the date in your phone by 2 days because since you have already checked for update, SW won't check any updates by connecting to server for next 24 hours. Changing time settings works. Once done, change back it to actual.
Anuj, 14 Aug 2010Yeah, raging thunder is a cool accelerometer based game; one of my favourite.

The product code I used to update the firmware is 0585713
Anuj, 14 Aug 2010And yes, one can change and switch between product codes any times. It doesn't affect things. ... morethis is really gr8 man....nice thing to know a product code can be so important......and i think those whu r planning to update using 5230 firmware shud not change their product code back...as i don't think nokia is going to look back at this device...enjoy the future updates of nokia 5230......
And MANU the SHAZAM app... Is installed in the music folder...if u don't find it just download it from the ovi store
Hi Anuj, can you please suggest why my phone software updater (under applications) is unabl to detect the software Shazam and Scribble
