New E51 Firmware v200.34.36 Out

Wow! Nokia is really turning it on these past few days. After updates for the N95-3, N95-4 and the E61i, the E51 is the latest to have got this blessing. This update takes the firmware on the E51 up from v100.34.30 to v200.34.36. The firmware is still not available across all product codes, 0546184 seems to have it. Sadly, few details are available as to the improvements, there are no ground breaking additions though (No FL3). It also prevents ROM modding, if you care.

In case you are running Vista and want to upgrade, just hit Properties on the NSU, in the Compatability tab select XP SP2 and the software should work just fine from there on, allowing you to update.

  1. I got an E51 with firmware version 100.x.x and when i go online it does not show the 200.x version. My phone was also purchased from India. Is there any particular reason for the control of the firmware only for selected countries? as the phone is supposed to the same with no regional differences.

  2. The firmware availiablity depends on the product code. Generally phones bought in India tend to get firmwares a little for whatever reason. You can wait or change the product code and update. However there is nothing groundbreaking in the firmware.

  3. i’ve tried to install this update and it crashed my laptop 3 times!!! how come?
    i have an e51(16.1). i ran it using winXP. i have version 100.34.20 RM-244

  4. Hello, I have firmware 100.59.38 in my E51. Unfortunately it does not
    support the 4GB card. Do you know if the new v200.34.36 fix this bug?

  7. Hi,
    I am new user of nokia e51,earlier i was using sony ericsson w850i, can anybody tell me how to add word in t9 dictonery and how to record ongoing conversion.


  8. Updated my E51 firmware successfully. restored backup cantacts, notes etc. There doesnt look anything new. Lost a few applications installed on memory card. Have to reinstalled them all.
    I didnt find any advantage of updating to new firmware. u too guys dont be in a hurry to update ur firmware. first confirm for advantages of new firmware.

  9. Upgraded my E51 The result=The disaster.
    1) for no reason everything may go slow down so the only solution is to reboot the phone
    2) after entering the standby mode 2 active shortcuts(from left and right) disappear, must press “Home” button to reactivate them. Very annoying.
    3) the phone hides the window that shows firmware version by pressing *#000#, instead it appears only when the phone goes to standby mode?!

  10. No need to update your E51 with the new firmware. I lost some applications and had to re-install them.

    I could not re-install the Nokia Quran. It’s a legal software from Nokia and failed to re-install it. Got expired certificate. Changed date and still same thing. Even tried to re-install it with the online certificate option on. It simply won’t install.

    This is the last time I’m upgrading. If you do not see a list of improvements then never do it.

    Damn you Nokia!

  11. i was wondering, how much time does it take to up date a nokia e51 coz my update started with 83.8mb but now its 100mb and still going on!!!
