Nokia has just announced that there is a new firmware v31.002 available for the Nokia N79. To get this software through your device using FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air), type in *#0000# on the home screen or go to Device Manager. Select Options > Check for updates and follow the on screen prompts. Additionally this software release is available via the NSU (Nokia Software Updater) and now also via Ovi Suite.
Although the Nokia N79 supports UDP (User Data Preservation), we still recommend you do a full backup to ensure you do not lose any data. New firmware updates generally contain bug fixes and optimizations necessary for other software to perform correctly, therefore we recommend you always keep your device up to date. No changelog as of yet, and depending on your product code it may take sometime before the update is available for your device.Tags | Breaking News, Feature Pack 2, Firmware, Firmware Over-The-Air, FOTA, N-Series, N79, Nokia, Nokia Software Updater, NSU, Ovi Suite, S60 3rd Edition, UDP, v31.002
