The Nokia N96 received a firmware update to version 12.043 today and since I haven’t done an over the air (OTA) update before, I decided to capture it on video for those who haven’t seen how it works. I love it! This is how all firmware updates should be.
Note: Head to the blog if you can’t see the video below in your RSS reader.
You can try this on your FP2 phone, too. Press *#0000# at the main screen, then click on “check for updates.” Let it do its magic if it finds an update. The phone restarts with the new firmware. Simple, fast, easy.
I usually have to run Windows XP on my Mac while connected via a USB cable to do an update. Doing an upgrade just using the phone is much user-friendly, so I’m all for OTA!
