Good news to the Nokia N97 owners! The Nokia N97 software update (2.1) will be available through the Nokia Software Updater tomorrow, on Monday 1 February. The software version number [either 21.0.045 (RM-505) or 21.2.045 (RM-507)] depends on your region and should be available by 08:00 GMT.
Your Nokia N97 (like many other devices) can check automatically for new software. Go to Menu > Applications > SW Update and enable automatic checking. This software update is only available through the Nokia Software Updater. Due to wealth of new content available in this release, the over-the-air “FOTA” packages are larger than normal (around 17MB) and to allow for sufficient testing, delivery will be slightly delayed. In order to get the most from the new software, it is recommended that you sync your device or make a backup excluding settings before updating. After the update, reset your device by keying *#7370# and enter your lock code (default = 12345). Then you can resync your device and restore your backup.
