New Nokia 5800 Firmware v30 Brings Homescreen Email, Speed & Stability Improvements

The Nokia 5800 has received yet another update in the form of the v30.0.011 firmware. The update helps improve the speed and responsiveness of the device and free up some more RAM for some multitasking goodness. The one things that it adds is a email shortcut on the homescreen for quick access to your email.

Nokia 5800 v30 Firmware

The firmware is available via the Nokia Software Updater (NSU), and is slowly making its way over the air (OTA) as well. If you do not find the update, it means that its not available for your product code yet and that you will have to wait.

If the email shortcut does not show up after the update, try toggling the home screen view from the settings menu. If that doesn’t work, a hard rest should. Although the 5800 supports user data preservation, it is recommended you backup before you update.

  2. hi there,
    i got a nokia 5800 XM version 30 and i am having a problem with my home screen. the phone and contacts shortcut as well as the other shortcuts are not working. i want to restore my phone to factory settings but i can remember the lock code…can somebody help me please? thank you in advance…please help me

  3. Here it is: *#7370# (for hard reset)
    Then it will ask for password: 12345

    Hope this works out for you. 🙂

  4. That was for the soft reset. Here is the hard reset way:

    Hard reset only works if you had previously updated the phone to v20. Please make backup before applying this type of reset, since it will restore the phone’s settings as well as erasing all the data in the phone memory.

    1. Switch off the phone.
    2. Press GREEN + RED + CAMERA + ON simultaneously until you see the
    “Select Country” option.

    The default password is 12345. You need to press and hold the key until the number appear.
