My phone has never been the most stable but I couldn’t update the firmware because I didn’t have a PC and Nokia don’t believe in supporting non-Windows platforms (despite Microsoft having a ban on its employees buying Nokia phones!).
As I received a PC the other day, I decided now was the time to try to update the firmware and do away with the phone stability problems. Big mistake.
I downloaded and installed the Nokia Software Updater without any problems however on applying the new firmware the progress bar seemed to be stuck at the position below for a good 20-30 minutes.
No matter how many times I try (or retry) it craps out on me. The phone itself won’t startup at all now. Fortunately I backed up the data before I started this process but now I am without a mobile. Damn.
