For the longest time, many Nokia users who want to update their phone’s firmware have to either send their phone to Nokia service centers, or dig around the net for often illegal software. Although newer phones can be updated over-the-air, most (even slightly) older phones don’t have FOTA (Firmware-Over-The-Air) support.
Today, Nokia releases Phone Software Update, an PC application that updates selected phones to the latest firmware.
Currently supporting the following phones:
E50, E60, E61, E62, E70, N70, N72, N80, N91, 770 Internet Tablet, 6131, 6630, 6680, 6681, 6682 (recently added in red)
As usual, updating device firmware can be risky (such as ending up with a paper weight). However, Nokia’s Phone Updater is implemented nicely, and the update process went smoothly for my 6680.
Make sure to read the FAQ before updating, as it addresses many important issues.
