Problems with speed dial and log>create number

March 8, 2010 2 comments

I have problems with certain numbers from the phonebook that cannot be added to a speed dial. Everytime I try to add it, the E72 just exits to the home screen. This only happens in a particular number.

Something that also happens is that if you get a call and try to user the number from the Log to update and existing contact (or create it) it sometimes does not work at all… again, the E72 exits to the home screen.

Firmware v023.002 is out

February 17, 2010 3 comments

Firmware version 023.002 appears to be out, not much longer after 022.007. At this time I’ve been unable to find out what has changed, other than minor corrections regarding localization (asian countries). It is not available for my terminal at least.

Probably a very minor upgrade. I’m tempted to skip this one. Post your opinions if you got it…

Does your E72 have memory leaks?

February 3, 2010 1 comment

Yes, I know it probably does. Since my initial post many users noted problems they’re having with their E72’s firmware. I admit that in some cases I did not experience the problem (for instance, the Space bar has always worked nicely) but there is an issue that might affect all E72s; It is a pity that this fine model was produced with so little RAM, but it is even worse that it leaks it like hell, forcing us to reboot it every 2 days or so (when used to the maximum).

You don’t get much more than 40MB after a clean boot and after a couple of hours of normal usage I’m down to 25-27. The longer it is on, the less memory is available. Granted, I’m using a hacked unit with lots of software installed, but I’ve been unable to notice any tasks eating up RAM – and in fact – the same thing happens after a fresh clean reset.

This happens with all OSs, WiMo included… but where is all that RAM going, Nokia?

Ovi Maps now fully empowered in the E72 and free of charge

January 24, 2010 2 comments

As you all have heard, Nokia announced some interesting news. E72 users now have full Ovi Maps power, without having to pay for it. In-car navigation, data from lonely planet and michelin guides and so on. So there you go, finally no need to have to install other GPS apps.. unless of course you want a different map provider.

Right now I’m using only Ovi Maps and Sygic Mobile (in my area at least it appears to have updated maps)

New E72 firmware released – 22.007

January 12, 2010 2 comments

Nokia has released the first firmware for the Nokia E72 after the original production release. 22.007 is now E72-1 (Euro) version.   According to some who already installed it, there seem to be some bug fixes included in the new, along with some new themes.

As usual Nokia is quite secretive about the changes (one of the things I have always hated) so a detailed change log still hasn’t emerged for the time being. Also no information on HelloOx compatibility or any particular fixes.

If you have flashed yours with this Bond version and want to share info about any changes, let us know.
