    Default New Nokia N78 firmware Version 21.002(unofficial changelog included)

    The unofficial changelog has been written by adrianhughes nokia discussions.

    Link: Nokia DiscussionsNokia discussions

    Hi everyone, thanks for all your advice and comments now that v21.002 has been released here (both on FOTA and NSU) are the changes I have noticed, along with some newly discovered bugs:

    NOTE: all the documented features/improvements are performed with the Theme Effects turned on.

    The update size from v20.149 to v21.002 is 214kb. Update takes about two minutes to complete.

    Changes/Improvements/New features I have noticed from v20.149 to v21.002:

    Standby screen:

    *When Music Player is operating, and seeing the track name on the screen, and then when one song ends and goes to the next track, the speed at which this happens has almost no lag now compared to 20.149 where it still had some noticeable lag.

    Call log, Contacts and calling function:

    *Calling speed (from standby screen to Contacts or Call Log) and transition to call/disconnected screens even faster than 20.149, is instantaneous now.

    *Even faster resume of music playback after call is ended, I would say it is instantaneous

    *Now keypad tones are enabled when phone call is on loudspeaker, you can hear the tones when pressing buttons, which was previously not available


    *Maps startup is now almost instantaneous, speed through all the Maps menus very fast

    *Switching to different views is very smooth and fast now, i.e. to Map 3D etc.

    *Maps version 2.0 week 39 remains the same

    Music Player:

    *When playing music, and playing visulisations and changing the volume, a new volume slider bar appears at the top of the screen.

    Camera and Photos:

    *Updating of pixelation in images (i.e. to smooth the picture out) when zooming in is faster than before

    *Going into Details is faster than before, is not full screen view as it was before

    *Scrolling speed through thumbnails is only minimally jerky now, transition back from playing videos to the Photo Gallery is now smooth and no blockiness appears

    *More menu options added, not sure if all of these were already in 20.149, but they do appear new: Video mode, Go to Photo. Also when keypad is locked and you turn to resume, it says Camera On Standby.

    *When going into Scene Modes in Camera, description text is now blue and not white, making it hard to read

    *A few changes to the appearance of Flash Options, ISO etc etc in Camera.


    *When going into the Settings menu, previously it would be able to be seen that the items were being 'loaded' or were 'catching up' - this speed is now very much improved and items appear almost instantaneously.

    *Changing Network Mode from UMTS to GSM and vice-versa no longer appears blocky and is now instantaneous


    *Overall system speed has been improved so it is even faster than 20.149

    *Breathing lights come on instantaneously and are now faster

    *Naviwheel performance has been tweaked even more, now is very useable in the main menu and has been improved again for the Music Player.

    *Help menu speed from loading one article to another is now much faster.

    *Msg Reader performance much improved, message display no longer lags when reading of one message has been completed and reading of next message begins

    *N-gage application version has remained the same

    Other documented changes that have been stated by others for v21.002:


    Improvements to general stability of phone, Bluetooth audio enhancements, photo UI developments and email upgrades (i.e. Mail For Exchange has been updated).

    *luyul user here on Nokia boards: "I did notice the music player opens a little faster now. As for the volume on the FM trasmitter, it does seems a touch louder.. perhaps 10% or so."

    *dwedgbury user here on Nokia boards: "Photos - Tag Browser: still unable to browse photos by tags, dumped out to standby screen".

    I have yet to check all the bugs that were documented for v20.149 in the thread /discussions/board/message? date_ascending&page=1 but I will go about that very soon and document all the changes here in this thread. But so far, so good, the firmware appears to be a lot better and more stable than 20.149. Again, thanks to all users for their current feedback on problems. Remember to be sure to add your experiences with the N78 here!
