+ First firmware for N96 - Change log is In Da House!!

26 September 2008

Nokia N96 MCU SW v11.018
Full Change log is In Da House!!

Yesterday I've briefly informed you that Nokia has rolled out first firmware update for Nokia N96 which is kind of unusual for just released phone!?

Anyway, thanks to the reports over at our forum section we know that firmware v11.018 is only available for the generic European product codes at the monet but I guess that rest of the planet will inevitably get update soon as well.

What is the most important is that I managed to get the full changelog and what is even more interesting is the full log of the bugs and various errors that have already been discovered and reported for just released firmware!!

Yes you read it right, the just released firmware is full of bugs as well and I guess that we might get another update even sooner than we expected!

Anyway, firmware v11 is typical minnor update that doesn't brings anything radically new and it is mostly oriented on fixing the known bugs and issues from the previous version and also brings lot of improvements in terms of features and stability and thereof it is suggestible to make an update.

So her is the full log of changes and improvements made from MCU SW v10 to v11 as well as the list of documented bugs in the actual firmware v11! By the way, log is chnaged a little bit just to track how it spreads around the net.
