New Firmware v11.0.079 | Nokia 5230

The Nokia 5230 has received a new firmware update taking it to v11.0.079. The S60 5th Edition device has a 3.2″ resistive touch screen on a bright nHD 640 x 360 pixels display, a 2 megapixel camera and comes in a wide range of eye-catching colours. 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. Check out the rest of the details along with the full changelog after the break.

How To Update:

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 also via the Nokia Ovi Suite. Although the Nokia 5230 supports UDP (User Data Preservation), we still recommend you do a full backup to ensure you do not lose any data.

The N900 isn’t just capable of multi-tasking, it can juggle even the heaviest tasks.

Plus a few other tasks were performed to show that the N900 behaves like a proper mobile computer.
