-UI transition (Slowness and bad effects)
-Slow Touch UI response
-Picture of the device lock appears half of the screen when transitioning the UI sometimes
-Landscape: in some cases the soft buttons on touch (right hand) show the Home Screen in background (install maps.google.com)

Yes!!! been expecting this v12.043 to come out since last month!

As you can see, I am updating the firmware via Over The Air (OTA) which means you can download the update wirelessly on 3G or GPRS connection.

To update via OTA, go to menu > tools > utilities > dev. manager and select “check for updates”

Alternatively, you can still update the firmware via the Nokia Software Updater(NSU) on your pc. Here’s a step by step guide.
