Nokia issues another OTA firmware update for Nokia N78, v12.046

The Nokia N78 has received yet another software update but this time it can only be obtained over-the-air. No, it won’t be available from your PC’s Nokia software updater.

The new Nokia N78 firmware update is version 12.046, and it supposedly fixes bass distortion, makes the naviwheel “more flexible” and optimizes GPS performance with overall UI speed.

N78

Since the firmware update isn’t available on the Nokia software updater, users who want to update will have to go through the whole process directly from their phones.

To do so, go to Menu > Tools > Utilities > Device Manager. From here select “Check for updates” from the options menu, and follow the instructions. If you do this correctly you’ll be able to finish downloading the new firmware in a few minutes, either with GPRS/EDGE/3G or Wi-Fi. The download is only less than 1MB so that shouldn’t take long.

The firmware update is free of charge, and is available to anyone with a Nokia N78. It doesn’t look like there’s any compelling reason to update, though, so doing so is entirely up to you.

    After my update from v10 to v12. All the bugs before are fixed.
    But now there are new instability which are (notes: no new software installation after upgrade):
    1. There is one time I cannot answer Video Call, to correct it need restart..
    2. After sometimes, during video call, audio only can go thru handset and unable to change to loudspeaker. To correct it need restart.
    3. Sometimes using voice call, unable to change to loudspeaker. To rectify, need restart handphone.

    Thats are instabilties after upgrade to V12 I faced so far..
    Hopefully nokia can solve this after new update…
