Nokia has released a new firmware update v40.0.003 for both the Nokia 5230 and 5233. There is also a new firmware v40.6.003 for the Nokia 5235. It’s a pretty big update from the previous v21.8.005. The new firmware should be available for most of you right now, however it may take some time for the rest of you, depending on your service provider or region. New firmwares contain important updates for your handset to function properly so we highly recommend you update your device. Check out the changelog after the jump.

How To Update The Firmware

There are many ways of updating the firmware on your Nokia handset. To install the software on your device using FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air), type in *#0000# on the home screen or go to Device Manager. Then select Options, Check for updates and follow the on screen prompts. If the firmware update is not immediately available via FOTA, or the device you are using does not have support for this service, you can also update your firmware using NSU (Nokia Software Updater) and or Nokia Ovi Suite on your PC. Once you plug your device in, select the PC Suite option, ensuring that the phone has a Sim Card inserted and the profile is set to General. Some devices support UDP (User Data Preservation), which will preserve all your data and content on your device during these updates. However we still recommend you do a full backup in order to guarantee the safety of your data. Please share your thoughts and experiences with the new firmware in the comments below.
