Modern electronic devices contain "firmware", which is a set of instructions and programs that tell the device how to behave. Device manufacturers often release updated firmware versions which fix bugs and sometimes add new features. These updates are free, and can usually be downloaded onto the device from the internet.It's a good idea to regularly update the firmware on your phone, because the updates will fix problems, make the phone run more smoothly, and sometimes add new or updated functions.For some weird reason Nokia has decided to refer to firmware as "software", which is a bit confusing as software normally refers to computer programs in general. However, we're going to use the word "firmware" because that's what everyone else uses when talking about the programs and instructions built into devices.
If you have a computer running Microsoft Windows, you can use Nokia's Software Updater application to install firmware updates on the 5800. This tends to replace the phone's entire firmware instead of just updating it, which takes a lot longer but can also be more reliable.You can download Nokia Software Updater from its official website by clicking on this link. Install the application on your computer, and then run it. Follow the on-screen instructions precisely and the update should work (make sure you do follow them precisely though, don't skip any steps). You'll need your 5800's microUSB cable to do the update through a PC.
If you can't get the firmware update through OTA or your computer, you can take your 5800 to a local Nokia-authorised repair centre and they will install the latest firmware free of charge. All Nokia phones come with a 2 year guarantee in Europe, sometimes a 1 year guarantee elsewhere, and you are entitled to get free firmware updates from a repair centre throughout this period.
On 21 August 2009, Nokia announced a new variant named Nokia 5800 Navigation Edition. In addition to the normal Nokia 5800, it has the latest version of Nokia Maps pre-installed. It also comes with a car charger and car kit inside the box because the GPS decreases the battery life. Both the Nokia 5800 XpressMusic and the 5800 Navigation Edition, however, have free lifetime navigation, due to the new version of Ovi Maps.The service was available at nokia.com.
The Nokia 5800 RM-356 V60.003 firmware or flash file shared on this page is officially released by the company and helps you to recover your device if you ever got bootloop, software error, update error, hanging or dead issues. 1e1e36bf2d
