Where are you located and did you get your phone through an operator (O2 etc?). It could be tht your country/operator has not approved the sw yet (they will eventually im sure). For the time being 1.10 is still better than 1.00 but no WDRM.

just plug the USB Cable to PC, there will be 3 options, chose DATA STORAGE MODE, you dont need any drivers/software, your N91 will automatically shows as an Removable Disk Drive in MY Computer.. (For WIN XP with Service Pack 01 or 02)

than enjoy 4gb space..

You probably could get away with no HDD format but i followed the steps. I guess just try it without doing the HDD format and if you run into problems then just repeat the steps again

Hi everyone. Well its FINALLY here. You can upgrade you software at home using official, Nokia Blessed software. Thanks Mman for the heads up.

Even though I already had 2.00.052 software I wanted to give it a try - I DID and it worked great. So here is what you do (i copied Mmans steps but added my own comments)

1) Make sure you have the latest PC suite (6.81)from :, if not then install it
2) Then go to here :,1522,,00.html?ori­g=/softwareupdate, or­eupdate/1,8838,,00.html? and download the Nokia SW update app and install it (note you need 256Mbytes of RAM on your PC, my old one downstairs could not load it). I used the USA site (even though I am in the UK I thought Id try it)

3) Now backup you N91 and format HDD

a) PC suite Backup: You need to backup your N91 ROM Start up PC suite. Connect your N91 with the USB cable to the PC and on select "PC suite" connection mode on the N91 Then select the backup function in PC suite. Make sure under settings you choose "include only phone memory on your backup". Then hit backup

b) Save the HDD stuff: Copy your Music, Videos, Pictures etc from the device HDD to your PC. I simply drag and drop using USB mass storage

c) Copy an SISX themes, applications, Java Games you downloaded to the PC. Do not drag and drop the installed files to the PC (remember the Tips where dragging them back may cause a problem)

d) FORMAT your hardrive (i used quick format)

4) Now update the SW using the Nokia Software Updater.

a) Start the program but do not connect the N91 yet until it tells you to in the Getting started window ( it told me to attach a charger but my battery was full so I didn't bother)

b) Also do NOT answer calls or make a call during the process (it needs to be online for some reason so you cant switch it to offline mode, I tried and it detected it and told me to go online)

c) It told me my phone software is already up to date but if I want I can install it. This is great since I was worried it would only allow you to upgrade and lets face it with all the 3rd party apps etc sometime you just need to refresh your phone and start again. I read on one blog that a persons so called "HDD problem" was actually a case of the phone sw getting wonky with some installation, the service center reflashed the same sw and voila good as new. Now we can do it at home :). I clicked on the little box, took a deep breath and hit re-install...

d) Well it was actually smart enough to know I did not have a charger attached......anyhow I went a got the charger.

e) I have adsl and it took 12 minutes to reflash my phone. Phone rebooted and I was ready to go- brilliant

f) Then the "installing" stuff it did when I first bough the N91. I let it finish without interrupting it

g) I decided to make sure the phone C drive was clean so I did the *#7370# (code 12345)
h) After the re-boot I checked the SW *#0000# - and I was back at 2.00.52 :)

5) Okay now restore your phone ROM from PC suite
a) Start up PC suite and connect your N91 (select PC suite mode)
b) Select the backup function again
c)Select the restore button and highlight the backup you want to restore. Hit OK

6) I then copied my HDD contents back on and re-installed the few apps I had (podcast etc, themes). This took me about 40 minutes

So in less than one hour I had cleaned up my N91. Reflashed it and its as good a new. Now when they have a new version of sw (or I need to clean it up for real) I can do it again. So for everyone out there that still has 1.00, 1.10 etc
try it out (note I suspect that not all operator sw will be there straight away there always seems to be a lag there but keep trying)

To bader, pappy Shayne

I just upgraded my N91 with the official SW from Nokia and its GREAT!. Now I can update my own N91 when new Sw comes or refresh my device if somehow I screw it up:

Bader the 256MB is what your PC must have in RAM. My older PC got the same message and I had to use my newer laptop.

Pappy try it out! Info:

1) Make sure you have the latest PC suite (6.81)from :, or other local regional sites.

2) Install the Nokia software update application sw from (note you need 256MBytes of RAM on your PC)

3) Then program your phone

a) Backup your phone memory (ROM) using PC suite (to preserve your DRM activation keys etc).

b) Copy your files (Music, Videos, Documents, Images etc) from the device HDD to your PC (recommended to use USB Mass storage).

c) Copy your applications, themes etc (original SISX, Java etc files before you installed them) from your HDD to your PC (Do not simply copy the installed directories/files over)

d) FORMAT your HDD

e) Proceed with SW update (note you need to be attached to a charger and not in offline mode. Do not answer or make call or disconnect the device during this process)

f) Reset your phone memory by typing *#7370# (code 12345) (recommend this just to be safe)

g) Restore your phone memory using PC suite

h) Copy back your HDD contents from your PC to your clean HDD

h) Re-install your applications/themes
