maaz , 18 Jan 2010mr.Parashi can you tell me hw u did it i tried bt it was the sme 1 i hd bfreI had installed Nokia Software Updater and then connected my 5800 through USB cable. The software displayed that the new firware 40.0.005 is available for download. Since I had Tata Indicom Broadband connection, I left the phone for the updation. After one hour when I returned, the message "Your phone has been updated to the latest software" welcomed me. Now my 5800 rocks like anything..
VENUS-Bangalore, 18 Jan 2010Hi Prashi, U seem to be a fundoo in using features. How old is your 5800XM phone? is it bought... moreI bought the Nokia 5800 in Oct 2009 at Univercell here in Bangalore, India. It costed me around 13500. Yup, TV out works fantastically. TV out cable was not there in the box. I bought N95 cable for 300 rs and TV output works amazingly with it. I load lots and lots of videos ( remember HD and HQ MP4 videos converted through Total Video Converter) into my 5800 and then watch them on my TV relaxing on the sofa.. :) :) cool...
WOW... Finally I updated my 5800's firmware to 40.0.005. I am in Bangalore in India. I never knew the new firmware has been released. But I came to know about this from Nokia 5800 Tube blog. I updated the firmware through NSU and it took nearly 1 hour to complete. Now my Nokia 5800 rocks like anything.. WOW... These are the changes..
1) Finally Kinetic scrolling everywhere except application menu, main menu and browser. I love to scroll the songs, contacts and all others now similar to N97.. Superb..
2) Beleive me, the Phose is even more stable now, with the touch screen even more responsive.. :)
3) Finally new screen similar to 5530, Use the contact bar screen and you can see the change. You can add upto 20 contacts and Kinetic scroll them on home screen. And your music player shows like a live widget below in this screen similar to 5530. Superb.
4) Real Player has been updated to 12 Oct 2009, and now the videos have even more charm in them while playing. Superb..
5) The music experience is even more refined now and its just amazing.
6) Finally amazing improvement in the camera's performance.. Thanks Nokia... Thanks a lot for this
7) When typing messages, you will automatically get qwerty screen when you rotate the phone horizontally.
There are lot more improvements. I still need to identify them. But my Nokia 5800 now rocks like anything especially with Kinetic scrolling. I can proudly show my phone to my pals who have N97. N97 is just N5800 with more memory. Infact N5800 has a separate dedicated chip for audio which N97 lacks. Music experience on N5800 is the best till date compared to any other Nokia pjones release till now.
Thanks Nokia for this most memorable New Year Gift.
Updated to v40.
But still that error black screen with colorful strips on right side is there.
