Brand new firmware for Nokia 5233 (RM 625) was released a few days ago bringing some performance enhancements, bug fixes and updates to the cheap S60 ver. 5 device.

Right now the update is only available Over The Air (OTA) and via the Nokia Software Update on selected regions. The changes commited on this new firmware update are the following:

  • Issue fixed with creating a new profile, once the handset is factory reset
  • Auto update of sites is fixed
  • Music transfer from your computer to the device is fixed
  • Network reconnection issues solved
  • Battery consumption lowered when OVI Maps was in foreground and background
  • We also noticed a minor performance update on the browser along with the addition of a search box with a custom search provider between bing and google.

    Before proceeding to the update, we recomend you to make a backup of your phone's memory although the UDP (User Data Prevention) will protect your data.
