(How to) Flash a Nokia Mobilephone by PC using Phoenix and Navifirm

UPDATE - Please note that the updated post on this topic is here. So if the below given method does not work for you, refer to the new tutorial.

WARNING: Phone flashing is a double-edged sword; it may be useful and dangerous at the same time. It may brick/damage your phone for good (if not done carefully), so please DO NOT flash your device if you don’t know what the hell flashing a phone means

In this post I will explain the use of Phoenix (Nokia Service Software) to flash a normal (not dead) Nokia mobile (taking Nokia N8 as an example). Flashing means re-installing phones firmware (Operating system) files. There are many situations when it becomes necessary to flash a mobile deletion/corruption of system files, phone is dead/bricked

    Try running Phoenix in compatibility mode (Right click on the app icon – Properties – Compatibility – Tick/Check “Run this program in compatibility mode for Windows XP (Service Pack 3 or 2) – Click “Apply” and then OK). Make sure ur phone is connected properly via data cable (select PC Suite mode). Tell me if this solves ur problem…

    Hey, Navifirm is giving me an error that says:

    “An error occurred when attempting to connect to the update server.

    [WebException]
    The undelying connection was closed: An unexpected error occurred on a receive.”

    Does anyone knows how to solve this??

      Dear sometimes Navifirm gives this error due to Nokia Software server problem. Clear the local cache in Navifirm and try again after some time. It should solve your problem…

    when i try installing phoenix my antivirus detects a file (adlob) as threat.
    it still installs but says install nokia dongle and start again. how can i fix this?

      Its a false alarm so disable your antivirus and install Phoenix once again to avoid Dongle error

    Hi,

    I have E72 and firmware 053.001 which I am having some problems with it. Ovi suite says that is up to date, but is not, the latest one is 091.003.
    I know that the operator stopped supporting it. In variants window I can see my product code when i chose 053.001 firmware, from there down I can not see the it. So what have I chose from variants is I want to update to the latest firmware?
    I red that I have to debrand it first to be able to get the latest firmware.
    I do not know how.
    Any help is welcome.

      You can flash another firmware of the same variant on your phone (no debranding required) but it is risky as this may brick the phone. So if you can take some risk then go ahead.

    Hi, I have a Nokia 5220 XpressMusic Red wih the code 0568500, It’s a Orange relese. So I would like to flash it with another Nokia 5220 Red firmware (0563666). So do you think this can brick my phone or not?
    Cheers

      Yes you can flash this firmware as long as it belongs to the same RM (i.e. your phone’s RM)
