New Firmware v14.002 (PR 1.1) | Nokia E7
The Nokia E7 has received a new PR 1.1 firmware update, taking it up to v14.002. A PR 1.1 update has already been available for the Nokia C7 and Nokia N8, however this is not the same release, and is in fact a newer update from that (v14). The firmware details state that it improves the phone’s performance and brings the latest features to the device. The 907 kB update should be available for most of you Nokia E7 users right now, although it may take a while for it to become available to all regions and carriers.
How To Update The Firmware
There are many ways of updating the firmware on your Nokia handset. To install the software on your device using FOTA (Firmware Over-The-Air), type in *#0000# on the home screen or go to Settings>SW Update. Then select Options>Check for updates and follow the on screen prompts. On newer devices you’ll get the option to select which updates you would like to install, so once selected, press Options>Start update. If the firmware update is not immediately available via FOTA, or the device you are using does not have support for this service, you can also update your firmware using NSU (Nokia Software Updater) and or Nokia Ovi Suite on your PC. Once you plug your device in, select the PC Suite option, ensuring that the phone has a Sim Card inserted and the profile is set to General. Some devices support UDP (User Data Preservation), which will preserve all your data and content on your device during these updates. However we still recommend you do a full backup in order to guarantee the safety of your data. Please share your thoughts and experiences with the new firmware in the comments below.
