    This will be because the only way to get the update in the UK/EU at the moment is flashing a build from Navifirm or the Nokia Care Suite or some mixture of the two (I've not tried it so I'm not sure on the process). The official OTA update isn't due to start until February at the earliest according to Nokia's press release, although Elop has replied to people's outraged emails saying they're hoping to start the rollout sooner than this.

    I looking forward to it, I am hoping it will fix a few niggles. Notably the popping sounds that happen a little too often for my liking.

    There's a beligian firmware available that seems to work for people in the UK. Haven't tried it myself.

    Is flashing from navifirm any harder than jailbreaking an iphone. Im not good with terminology so they could b the same but different.

    Tahiti Bob, where have you heard about people using the Belgian firmware? Is it safe to do?

    On a side note, when someone refers to their phone as being 'bricked' does it mean completely useless or needs to be flashed?

    I am happy to wait for the official one as I don't want any issues with it.

    I think i will do the same too. Smartphones are so unpredictable when it comes to software updates.

    I dont understand how people can have different outcomes when it comes to updating firmware. I guess there are so many factors involved in the phone running optimally.

    Yet they're making us wait for it... why do they want us to hate them so much?

    Have you noticed an improvement in the camera? This would be the main reason for me wanting this update

    Mind messaging me (or e-mail, whatever) some details on how to do this? I'm in the UK on EE and wouldn't mind the update.

    Cheers.
