N96 NAM RM-472 Gets An Update!!
Firmware v12.043 Available On The NSU!
Here are some really good news for those of you who are using the North American version of the Nokia N96.
Our Flotron ending weeks of nervous waiting and reports over at our forum section that few weeks old firmware version 12 is finally available for Nokia N96-3 NAM (RM-472).
Firmware v12.043 for N96 NAM is now available through the Nokia Software Updater but strangely it is not available for generic product codes!?
Sure, as usually, it is eaisly fixable with Nemesis Service Suite (NSS) and right product code and in case you got a problem you can find the working product codes over at forum section and all credits goes to mighty Flotron again.
I can't believe it but it's true... a software update for NAM version!!! The strange thing is that I have to change the product code of my unbranded N96-3 because NSU don't have updates for it. My original unbranded product code (no updates): 0570666. The other unbranded product co....: Full Flotron's report is available right here.
Although it is supposed to be the major update I am afraid it is not because it brings nothing new and is mainly focused on fixing the known bugs and various different annoying issues from the previous release.
Here is the detailed Nokia's change log and a s usually, you can find more information about the latest firmware update over the forum section.
