N95 8GB Firmware v20.0.016 Available – Automatic Screen Rotation Is A Go

New N95 8GB Firmware

We had previously reported about the upcoming N95 8GB firmware v20.0.016, the good news is that it is now available via the Nokia Software Updater (via: AAS). The firmware as usual brings us some bug fixes and improvements, but this time it brings a new feature too – Automatic accelerometer based screen rotation a.k.a. the N82. Other changes include:

  • Improvements in HTML format handling from Gmail IMAP server.
  • WLAN, BT and USB connectivity improvements.
  • Improvements to the Switch application.
  • Stability in the Gallery when there is a lot of content.
  • Startup functionality improvements
  • The browser also gets some attention with improvements to embedded video functionality while sending email via browser flash plugin.

Make sure you do a full backup before flashing via NSU and it is best to re-install applications and only restore contacts, calender, notes and bookmarks. This firmware as always will still not be available for operator branded handsets and for some product codes. Full changelog after the break.
