The latest update for the Nokia X6 has arrived (and not that long after the last one!) in the form on version 21.0.004.

The update is available now for those of you with generic X6’s (i.e. unbranded and direct from Nokia), and you can update it both via Nokia Software Updater or direct on the phone using Firmware over the air (FOTA) – see below for instructions.

As always it is recommended that you back up your phone before doing the update, but if you do via FOTA, thanks to Nokia’ User data protection, all your settings, data and applications, should stay.

How to update via FOTA

Before you start make sure you back up your device, as even though the phone has user data protection, if things go wrong during update (i.e. battery fail, or some other thing) you don’t want to risk loosing your important stuff!

  1. Before you start:
    • Backup your device
    • Fully charge your phone battery
    • Exit any application you have running
  2. Go to the home screen, open the dialler and type: *#0000#
    (You will get the Device updates screen which shows the current Software version, etc)
  3. Select “Options” then “Check for updates”
  4. This will find the updates available to you, and just follow the on screen instructions.

Screenshots of each of the above steps are in the gallery below, and as an added bonus are some screenshots of the new (beta) version of Nokia Software Updater and the new application updates works with it.
