E71 Firmware v200.21.118 Available For Some Euro Product Codes

Yet another firmware update is available for the Nokia E71, but right now only certain Euro product codes get it. I haven't even been able to get the last update for my North American E71-2. This means that my E71 is now two firmware updates behind. Instead of making this another firmware ranting post, I'm just gonna give you the details of this new firmware verson v200.21.118.

Gerrymoth over at nokiAAddict.com has brought us this outstanding news for European E71 owners. The changelog he has posted is quite extensive and looks to be worth going through the hassle. Sadly there is no User Data Preservation in this update, so everything in the phone will be wiped out. My N82 has User Data Preservation, everything is left perfectly intact during a firmware update which is great. Hopefully this feature comes to Eseries devices sometime soon, especially since these phones are more business oriented than the Nseries.

Check out the changelog below:

Be sure to backup your data on the device before the update.

Let us know if you find it for your product code, and how good the changes are. I'm curious to know if the dark theme problem has been fixed in the Contacts application.
