How to Install (Flash) Custom Firmware Into Nokia 5800 Express Music

Tags: , , , , ,

Note: The technique to flash custom firmware in this article is not exclusively limited for Nokia 5800XM only. In fact, most Nokia phone can be flashed up with custom firmware using the method that I will discuss below. However, due to my limited experience with other Nokia model, it is safe to set the title as above.

Introduction

I bought my Nokia 5800XM in January 2010 for RM1100. This price includes all genuine accessories, 18 month warranty, additional leather cover and genuine Garmin GPS software. Several months later, I bought Sennheiser CX 300-II Precision to be paired with 5800XM. Suffice to say, this combination complete my mobile audio experience.

Original firmware that came with my unit was version 20 something. Then, I immediately flashed it to version 30 something using Nokia PC Suite. I also upgraded Nokia Map (the one that charge per GPS route navigation) to Ovi Map (more comprehensive map and totally free of charge). Later on, I upgrade the firmware to version 40 something. In this version, Nokia introduce ‘Kinetic Scrolling’. Something like what iPhone has where we just slide our finger on the screen to move the list up or down. It was still not as smooth as iPhone but it did make me smile. A month or two later, firmware version 50 was out and I flashed this phone again. This firmware provides some performance enhancement and full ‘Kinetic Scrolling’ experience. The kinetic scrolling is much smoother and accessible at the main menu (something that was not included in firmware version 40). Finally, last two weeks, I upgrade my firmware to version 51 over the air (Celcom, my operator notified me about this upgrade and offers FOTA upgrade). However, this version doesn’t offer any additional function but some minor performance enhancement upgrade.

Direct comparison to my friend’s 5800XM who still use firmware version 20 (she never bother to upgrade her phone firmware), shows a very significant performance enhancement. Despite the kinetic scrolling, Ovi maps and several other Ovi’s services (which she doesn’t has in her unit), my phone seem to be much more responsive, better transition animation and has slightly better camera output quality. Kudos for Nokia for actively and progressively releases better firmware for the phone. (Phew, what a long words just to say, firmware does matter LOL)

The CFW’s Journey Begin

Okay, let move on to the main topic, the CFW. CFW stand for custom firmware or cooked firmware. It is a modified firmware that is based on the Nokia original firmware. CFW is loaded with many features that make the original firmware look bland. For example, CFW is significantly faster, contains many more homescreens, extremely cool transition animation, flash based homescreen, widgets and best of all it doesn’t check application’s certificate or sign application (in other word, it allows you to install any unsigned application into your phone). Some CFWs for 5800XM even are ported from N97 or Nokia X6.

However, not many have the courage to flash his/her mobile phone with custom firmware. Many believe that the trouble or risk of flashing custom firmware is not worth the effort due to the fact that you may brick your phone if you do it wrong. I was in this group prior to yesterday. The image of seeing my Nokia 5800XM as a fancy paper weight is enough to make me stay clear from install custom firmware.

However, upon further read from several tutorials and board discussions, it is not as hard as it seem initially. In fact, honestly speaking, flashing CFW into our beloved phone is easy as installing a new theme or application. But the risk is real. One or two critical mistakes during the process may brick the phone. So, do yourself a favor. Read thoroughly this article before flash your phone with CFW. Don’t rush okay J .

The Procedure

You need these tools. So download them:

Install Nokia Ovi Suite & Backup Your Phone

Install Nokia Ovi Suite and back up your phone especially your contacts, message etc. In fact, just backup everything because prior to flashing your phone, we need to hard reset it and format your phone memory card to avoid any potential error later on. Hard reset will erase all your contacts, message, phone setting etc. So back them up using Nokia Ovi Suite.

Even if you don’t want to back up your phone, it is essential to install Nokia Ovi Suite for the driver purpose. Otherwise, JAF tool can’t see your mobile phone at later stage.

Return Your Phone Software to Its Original State

Format your phone memory card. You can do this using your phone or using a memory card reader. I personally prefer to format my memory card using my own phone. Go to : File Manager / E: Memory Card / Click on Options button / Memory card option / Format.

Next, hard reset your phone. You may achieve this using 2 methods: The first one is type *#7370# (the default security code is 12345) but I prefer the below method (bypass security code):

  • Turn the phone off
  • Press and hold 3 keys (green + red + camera) together.
  • Without releasing these keys, turn the phone on.
  • Keep holding these 3 keys until the screen show Nokia’s standard hand shake animation.
  • Release these 3 keys. Your phone will execute hard reset process.

Okay, now your phone software is good as new.

Download Your Phone Original Firmware

Now we need to download your phone’s original firmware using NAVIFIRM. Originally, we flash our phone using Ovi Suite or PC Suite right. This suite automatically detects our phone hardware and software then downloads and installs the relevant firmware for our phone automagically. However, for this one we need to manually select and download the right firmware for our phone.

Extract and run NAVIFIRM. Mine is as shown below.

Choose your phone model correctly. As we can see here, there are 3 variant of Nokia 5800XM. The RM-356, RM-427 and RM-428. Different model number use different kind of hardware. So, do not download firmware for RM-427 or RM-428 if your phone model is RM-356. You can check your phone model by typing *#0000#. Look for Type.

‘Release’s is firmware version. Ensure that the firmware you are going to flash into your phone (the one you are about to download using NAVIFIRM now) is newer (or at least has same version number) than the one that already in your phone. Downgrading firmware will definitely brick your phone. You may check with your phone firmware by typing *#0000# too. As for my case, my current phone firmware is 51.0.6. So, I have to download ‘releases’ version 51.0.6 or later (in this case, 51.0.6 is the latest one).

Next, choose your phone variant. My Nokia 5800XM is for Malaysian market and has ‘red lining’. Therefore I chose “APAC1 RED MALAYSIA (0570196)”. If you are not from Malaysia, for example Indonesia and your phone has blue lining, you may want to choose “APAC1 Indonesia BLUE (0559960)” variant.

Finally for the files section. Just tick them all. And press “Download from FiRe” button. Save the files into “Your phone model number” folder. As for my case, I save them into a folder name RM-356 on my Desktop.

Download the Custom Firmware

There are so many CFWs for Nokia 5800XM out there. To say CFW A is better than CFW B and vice versa is not entirely correct. Different CFW has different goal. Some CFW is more features and function oriented thus this firmware is kinda bloated for some perspective. Some CFW is more speed and performance oriented. So this firmware may be seem too bare for somebody else. In fact, some firmware might be tweaked to the extreme where battery life is no longer a primary concern. Therefore, it is up to you to choose the right firmware for your mobile phone. http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?board=84.0 is a good place to start to find the right firmware for your taste.

As for this tutorial, I use Xtension^10 CFW variant 2. You may get it at http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php/topic,22786.0.html . I personally prefer this extension due to its performance oriented but not too minimalistic. Having 82 MB free RAMs is a very good thing too. Furthermore, Xtension^10 is based on firmware version 51.0.006. Other Xtension CFWs are based on previous version of Nokia firmware. As we can’t downgrade the phone firmware, it is really important for you to pay special attention here. Do not download CFW that is based on firmware that is older than your current phone firmware and most importantly, the CFW must be based on the firmware version that you previously download using NAVIFIRM. In other word, if you download original firmware version 51 (NAVIFIRM), do not download and use CFW that is based on version 50, 40 or older.

You may download Xtension^10 Variant-2 at http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?topic=22786.msg232730#msg232730 .

Mix Up Custom Firmware with Original Firmware

Custom Firmware doesn’t provide every single file that is needed for your phone. That is why we need to download original firmware using NAVIFIRM before. Same goes to Xtension^10 variant-2. It just provides Rofs2 and Rofs3 files only. So, extract the “ENGLISH ONLY Xtension (rofs2+uda).rar” and “Xtension_10v2.rofs3.rar” into a folder as below.

Then, open up the original firmware folder (the RM-356). Most likely, the files will look like the screenshot below but this is not a must. Different firmware version for different phone model may have different file names.

What we need to do now is change the CFW files name (from Extracted folder) according to your original firmware files name (from RM-356 folder). So as for my case, I need to change “General.uda.fpsx” to be “RM-356_51.0.006_026_000_U01.uda.fpsx”. Err..how do I know? Well, in RM-356 folder, there is only 1 file that end with .uda.fpsx right. In short, the files that I change is as listed below:

  • General.uda.fpsx ===> RM-356_51.0.006_026_000_U01.uda.fpsx
  • ENGLISHONLY.rofs2.V01 ===> RM-356_51.0.006_prd.rofs2.V22
  • Wave1.Xtension^10v2.rofs3.fpsx ===> RM-356_51.0.006_C01_prd.rofs3.fpsx

The next step is, copy these three files that we already change its name into RM-356 folder (folder that contains original firmware files) and overwrite the original files. The idea is, we want to mix up original firmware’s files with custom firmware’s files. The reason is, custom firmware doesn’t provide every single file that is needed for your phone operating system. The author only supplies 2 or 3 files that he/she modifies. So it is up to us to prepare the additional files that are needed by our phone. That explain why we need to download the original firmware using NAVIFIRM previously.

So, once the 3 original files are overwrote by the custom firmware’s files (that we already change their name), our complete CFW is ready to be transferred into your Nokia 5800XM. Copy the whole folder (RM-356) into “C:\Program Files\Nokia\Pheonix\Products” directory. Or if you are using 64 bit operating system, copy the whole (RM-356) folder into “C:\Program Files (x86)\Nokia\phoenix\products”. Refer screenshot below (omit the RM356-0570196… folder, it was automatically created by JAF when I did flash my phone previously).

Please note that the folder (that store our complete CFW) in “phoenix\products\”needs to be named exactly as your phone’s model number. As for my case, my 5800XM’s model number is RM-356. That explains why I use folder name RM-356.

And for those who are already panic because they can’t find any phoenix folder in Nokia directory…don’t be. By default, there is none. I manually create the “phoenix” folder and “product” folder.

Preparing JAF Tools

JAF Tools is the software that we will use to transfer your complete CFW into your mobile phone. So, follow the steps below to prepare it. It consist of JAF installation and copy paste 2 files (ini file and PKEY emulator) into JAF installed directory.

Extract “Nokia Flash Tools.rar” (the one you download for JAF and PKey). You will find “JAFSetup_198.62.rar” file, “OGM_JAF_PKEY_Emulator_v 5.rar” and “(.INI FILE)(jaf_nok4models).rar” file. Extract all the 3 files.

Install “JAFSetup_1.98.62.exe” at its default location.

Copy “Jaf_nok4models.ini” and “OGM_JAF_PKEY_Emulator_v 5.exe” into “C:\Program Files\ODEON\JAF” or “C:\Program Files (x86)\ODEON\JAF” if you are using 64 bit operating system.

Then, make a shortcut for “OGM_JAF_PKEY_Emulator_v 5.exe” emulator to your desktop for easy access later on.

Transferring Complete CFW into your 5800XM phone.

If you happen to use Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32 bit or 64bit), you have to change JAF PKey Emulator’s compatibility first. Right click on the JAF Pkey Emulator and choose properties. Click on Compatibility tab and set compatibility mode to Windows XP (Service Pack 3) and set privilege level as Run this program as an administrator as shown in the screenshot below:

Run the JAF Pkey Tool from your desktop.

Ensure the setting as in the screenshot above. Then click GO.

An error box will appear. Don’t worry, just click OK button.

Then, JAF will start. Click on BB5 tab.

Ensure that Manual Flash, Dead USB, Normal Mode and Use INI are checked. Uncheck CRT 308.

Then select your phone model. As for my case, I have to choose RM-356 as expected. Next, click OK.

If you do everything correctly, your JAF will look like as the screenshot below.

All four green circles will light up (MCU, PPM, CNT, APE Variant).

And ensure the path for the firmware (as in the marked red square) is right.

Next, TURN OFF your phone and connect it to the computer USB. (It is recommended to shutdown OVI Suite completely. Right click OVI Suite icon in the tray (if you happen to run it before) and choose exit).

Click on FLASH button.

A warning dialog box will appear, click YES.

Then, press your phone’s “Power Button” for 1 second and release. Just 1 second. Not more. Else your phone will start up. WE DON’T WANT your phone to start up. We just want to allow JAF detect our phone.

Once the JAF could detect our phone, the flash job will start.

Note: Whenever JAF need to detect the phone, press your phone’s power button for 1 second.

Wait for a minute or two until the flashing process is totally completed (indicated by a series of ‘ting’ sound).

Post flashing step

At current stage, your CFW is completely flashed into your mobile phone. However, for Xtension CFW, there is a post flashing procedure. Other CFW may not have this step. This is entirely depending on the CFW’s author. The step below is the post flashing procedure for Xtension CFW (directly copy from the author’s post):

First Boot Optimization – Do not ignore this!:
(Ignoring this will result in a buggy phone)
– After flash operation, when the country selection appears , quickly input your settings (country, date, time)
– Do not press any key until the homescreen appears
– Now wait until you get this message “Phone will restart”. Press OK
– Let the phone RESTART
– After restart, open themes>homescreen themes
– Switch from one homescreen to another starting from the first to last
– After doing the above steps, apply “Widgetizer” HS now
– Set your homescreen shortcuts for “Widgetizer” HS in Settings/personal/homescreen/shortcuts
– Done!

Note: I do not do the 2nd last and last step (that I mark with red color) as I found these step are not relevant with Xtension^10 CFW. Perhaps it is needed for Xtension^1 – 9.

Next…

OK…it’s done. Enjoy your “new” phone and happy installing new themes, software (unsigned hehehe) etc.

A good source for wonderful theme could be found at http://gallery.mobile9.com/c/nokia-5800-xpressmusic-themes_1954/1/

Find more news and latest application update at http://dailymobile.se/category/applications-s60v5/

And to satisfy your “ehem ehem” version of software need, heads up to http://www.dreamstrikes.com/applications-series-60-5th-edition-mobiles/ (free forum registration is needed)

And many more….just spend some time with Google or Bings J

Conclusion

I realize that there are many tutorials around the web that are already cover this topic. I have no intention to repeat the very same things but I found most of the tutorial is not very (total) newbie friendly. Those tutorials are excellent. In fact, I learn how to do this from those tutorials as well. Only at certain part, the authors forgot to explain some basic things which make me sometime wonder…why on earth I have to this and that.

Due to the nature of those tutorial only cover flashing CFW, it doesn’t cover other parts such as the need to backup your phone (some reader might just jump flashing their mobile phone and then realize all their phonebook’s contacts, messages etc gone for good), find a good CFW and mention about post flashing steps.

For what it’s worth, I do hope this tutorial would complement other tutorial (if not cover entirely) and prepare the ‘complete-newbie’ user in this CFW scene to start their journey in flashing their phone with CFW. Happy Flashing (not the nude thingy okay …LOL )

    Hi, i found very detail tutorial here, but i am stucked at “Download Custome Firmware” & “Mix Up Custom Firmware with Original Firmware”
    The link you provided will only download 2 files which is “Nokia_Pixel.rar” & “Core_UDA.rar”
    and the link you provided is CFW (Xtension C6-02 / Nokia Pixel has been RELEASED) but you told us is “Xtension^10 CFW variant 2”
    I compare both post the link and yours, seems like you wrote this tutorial later than the link. so i assume they din update the post after your tutorial.
    I found other post about Xtension^10 English Only but it is for 5530, So i dont dare to take the risk.
    So i have no idea where to download the file you said which is ““ENGLISH ONLY Xtension (rofs2+uda).rar” and “Xtension_10v2.rofs3.rar” ”
    Can you advice what should i do next?

  36. James Piramide says:

    I really appreciate uf effort of this tutorial of yours. However their some points that somehow unclear for newbies (including me before).

    1. After installing JAF, you mentioned to copy the “ini” files you included in the Flash Tools to the installed JAF default location. When we do the same, it prompted to replace an existing file. Yet you didn’t about overwriting such file or not. I think this should not be done since there’s already and “ini” file once you installed JAF.

    2. You also mentioned to copy OGM_JAF_PKEY_Emulator_v 5.exe at the same location and make a shortcut in the desktop. Right now I learned that there’s no need to do the same.

    Nevertheless, this tutorial is very useful to those who wish to flash CFW on their 5800.

    Last week I successfully flashed my phone with cfw but I didn’t follow this tutorial. I did follow very simple yet very low risk of breaking your phone. To those who want the tutorial i used, I can send you the same thru email. I recommend to flash cfw Xperience v2 (updated to v3 last March 21, 2011) by FuRCoM. It’s fast, stable and absolutely bug free. I’ve been using it for more than a week now and no bugs.

    Really appreciate you effort mate.

    P.S. My phone brick on my first attempt using this tutorial.

    I am trying it on a Nokia N85. I downloaded all the files from NaviFirm but these files are still not there.

    Also where can I get custom firmware for the N85?

    Thanks

  56. devesh says:

    hi dude its awesome thing but let me know can this be working on nokia x6

  57. expertester says:

    @devesh.
    You can’t install CFW for Nokia 5800XM to your X6. But obviously, the method is more or less the same. Both phone use S60V5.

    @kloyd;
    No worries. You can always restore your original firmware. Just copy the original firmware you download from Navifirm (all) into respective folder (as for my case, RM-356 one) and flash it again. Refer to : Transferring Complete CFW into your 5800XM phone.

    @Shane;
    Please. Don’t brick up your phone. You have to ensure 2 things at least.
    1. If custom firmware for N85 is exist.
    2. If yes, does it stable.
    3. Is the custom firmware’s version number is higher (or equal at least) with the one you pull from Navifirm.

    @Khurram,
    Sorry. I watch your video 2 times but can’t see anything. Too blurry. Please elaborate your problem here.

    @nittin,
    You can always check at dailymobile.se. They have tonnes of CFW.

    • Shane says:

      I could not locate any custom firmware for the N85. I just tried flashing with standard one but not the Orange one but that didn’t work but its not bricked.

  58. Pulkit Wasan says:

    plz help me when i flashed my phone with navifrm firmware and jaf and then it say cant pool and i switched on my mobile nokia 5233 nothing comes plz help my father will beat

  59. expertester says:

    Please read carefully the guide.
    The key is, when the JAF is trying to search (pool) your phone, you have to press power button for 1 second. Fail to do this will cause “can’t pool” problem.

    Good luck.

  60. Pulkit Wasan says:

    pool was done but then also my phone dosent start white screen came and pool done but phone not opreated plz help again????????????????????????????

  61. BloodCrazy says:

    nice tutorial…m happy to see many malaysians also try to flash thier phones…
    try this cfw…its great and im using it..

    http://forum.dailymobile.se/index.php?topic=48651.0

    its based on n97 mini..

  62. expertester says:

    @Wasan, if you miss some step or mix the file wrongly, this could be happen. Don’t worry though. You can always flash your original firmware (from navifirm) and flash it back.

    @BloodCrazy, nice CFW. Look tasty as well. Might try it later but subject to my wife approval LOL. I gave 5800xm to her already since I use Samsung Galaxy SII (Android campers now).

    HOW?

  65. expertester says:

    1 question, are you sure your model phone is RM-333?
    As far as I know, RM-333 is N85.

  66. Naren says:

    thankzzzzz yrrrr
    u reallyy rocked man

    Can someone link me to cfw for RM-333 N85 so I can unlock it from Orange UK.

    Thanks

  68. Vardaan says:

    Even i am having a problem that JAF is not able to find ini files.
    I am using nokia 5233 and i have done rest everything exactly as the procedure says.
    Please reply asap.

  69. himzztech says:

    hi! nice tutorial…
    some crazy doubt… i bought the 5800XM from London but using it in India… so in NAVIFIRM which variant i shud download?? that of United Kingdom or of India!!!
    I think it shud be UK’s//// and if it is… then there are 3 variants of Red V5 with same product code (0575581) …which of the 3 i should d/w ?????

  70. Pema Bhutia says:

    Hi!dat was a really nice tutorial….but i just wanted to know that by any chance if my phone is bricked what should i do… Please do let me know

  71. expertester says:

    @Vardaan: please state your phone model, your CFW and folder structure that you use to store your CFW (for JAF).

    @himzztech: yes, you should use UK variant. Doesn’t matter which one as long as the release number is equal or higher than the one in your phone now. Please make sure your CFW release number and the one you wanna download form navifirm has identical release number. Else, they wont mix well.

    @Pema: Just flash your phone with original fimrware (the one you download from Navifirm) using JAF. That will restore your phone even it was bricked.

  72. Isuru says:

    Hey Dear,

    I’m writing this with so much pleasure. First of all I need to say that this method works for Nokia N97 RM-505 (My phone model).

    I’m really Thanking you for publishing this kind of very helpful information.

    i can`t run the navifirm…it always says…application fail to initialize properly

  76. Anant Walake says:

    Good job Friend,

    This information is really useful and easy to understand. Actually I am using Nokia 5233 and I have flashed it may times by using these tools. And, as you said that nobody should not worry about their phone to install new firmwares. I am a new user to use firmwares, at the beginning I was also careful about my phone but after discussion with one of my Facebook friend I agreed to do this.

    So follow above steps carefully and properly (do not miss anything) and flash your favorite firmware on your phone and enjoy!

    Note: You people can contact me on Facebook (Anant Walake) or Gmail (akumarcom@gmail.com)

    Thanks,
    Anant

    LOL, the author already stated that ‘downgrading will brick your phone’. You can’t downgrade your phone. You have to use current firmeware (relative to what preinstalled in your phone) or latest firmware.

    Try to flash with latest firmware. Not cfw. It work for me.

    tried all the above steps on my nokia n85 with original firmware RM-333 Product Code 0561228

    But when phone restarts, tells me Phone start-up failed. Contact retailer.

    please help… anyone.

    NB.. i’m from Kenya, East Africa and used SSA (Sub Saharan Africa) Multi Copper and Copper variant

  95. hocasamy says:

    can i flash my 5800 with the c6 original firmware which i downloaded by navifirm ?

    • expertester says:

      You can’t.

      • hocasamy says:

        according to what you say , i must download a hacked version of the firmware so as to work so can you give me a link to a good version of the c6 but i want it the nearest version to the original c6 version please.

  96. fullmetal says:

    how do we know our phone is ‘red lining’ or ‘blue lining’?

    • expertester says:

      Owh, doesn’t really matter actually. The red or blue or even white is just to make your firmware come with the right theme.

  97. saveyoursole says:

    remove battery from the phone and there is device id written like 0574330. which will match with the lining and country where you bought from in navifirm.

  103. AJ says:

    Hi there, how can I bypass (or reset) the security code? I have tried a hard reset to bypass the security code, according to your specs, but it still requires a code after selecting the country.

    Bought my phone in South Africa and living in Holland, it was not supposed to be SIM locked, but you guessed it…. I cannot use the phone with a local SIM!

    As the phone is still under guarantee (for another 2 weeks) it can be done for free at Nokia if I take it back to SA. I was quoted 35euros to get it done here. Outrageous!

    Can anyone assist me with this? At the moment, I only use the phone as a very expensive camera.

    Thanking you in advance

    • expertester says:

      First, ensure your phone model number as I mention above. Download (latest) original firmware using navifirm (other country than SA). Flash it.

      In order to do this, you don’t need to hard reset your phone. It will basically format your phone using the newly downloaded firmware.

      • AJ says:

        Hi there, thank you for your response.

        Followed your instructions again but got the same issue. I cannot use a different SIM. Gosh, I cannot even start-up without getting a “Lock code” prompt. (12345 doesn’t work)

        Should the procedure (flash) be done with or without the SIM installed?

        Tried 3 different countries with the same result, phone stay locked. The phone can only be used with the original SIM, others end up with a request for a “Lock code”. No go without the original SIM card installed.

        Firmware flashed as I have different phone lay-outs and menus and no error messages are generated during the installation.

        I thought by flashing the firmware would remove all locks. Where do they store the lock code or SIM lock might it be hard coded?

        ALL I need is to be able to use my phone with a different SIM…. two year contract expires tomorrow.

        By the way, I saw a (UN)LOCK button on J.A.F. but it’s not functional.😦

        Any other suggestions?

    how can i remove the CFW from my 5800 XM Rm-356

  106. I have Successfully flashed my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic RM356, With firmware 52.0.007 but i don’t need Quickoffice with the firmware, this consumes lot of phone memory,
    So according to you which firmware will be best suitable for my fone with better phone memory space and sufficiently required softwares.

  107. Vinay says:

    thanks

    • expertester says:

      Actually, any variant will do. What important is RM-356. The variant is just to maintain your localize setting (language, theme etc). Since you are going to install CFW which has custom theme and setting, the important of variant is no longer significant.

  146. zapter says:

    hello everybdy…
    a very huge thanks to expertester..
    i was totally a newbie & really had no idea about flashing.but after going thru this blog & other sites i successfully flashed my nokia 5800xm with symbian anna v7.5..hats off to you bro…really a fantastic guide..
    i wud like to share few points with all of you & newbies like me.

    *install navifirm & download the nokis firmware as per ur cell model no.,
    *open the folder where its downloaded & you`ll see the following 7 files:

    RM356_0559673_60.0.003_001.dcp
    RM356_0559673_60.0.003_001.vpl
    RM356_0559673_60.0.003_001_signature.bin
    RM-356_60.0.001_026_000_U01.uda.fpsx
    RM-356_60.0.003_C01_prd.rofs3.fpsx
    RM-356_60.0.003_prd.core.C00
    RM-356_60.0.003_prd.rofs2.V19

    now after installing your custom firmware which you wud like to hav in ur cell
    just check that there are exactly the same no. of files i.e, 7 as in original firmware.

    now just match each n every file & its extension (i.e, with which it ends) and copy the files which you see are missing in ur customfirmware.

    in my case file “RM-356_60.0.003_C01_prd.rofs3.fpsx” was missing so i just copied it in my RM-356 folder from the original firmware.
    and flashing was successfull…
    once again thanks bro…keep it up..really great work…(atleast for me it is)

    • nipun says:

      my 5800 have firmware version 60.0.003. and i downloaded following files via navifirm ,

      RM356_0558982_60.0.003_001.vpl
      RM356_0558982_60.0.003_001_signature
      RM-356_60.0.001_026_000_U01.uda.fpsx
      RM-356_60.0.003_C01_prd.rofs3.fpsx
      RM-356_60.0.003_prd.core.C00
      RM-356_60.0.003_prd.rofs2.V01

    Boa tarde!
    Tenho um Nokia 5800 Rm-356 Firmware V:60.0.003. E gostaria de saber se tem como eu instalar uma verão anterior (51.0.006 ) Já baixar a versão anterior a 60.0.003. fiz o procedimento correto de instalação, mas ao finalizar ele pisca três vezes a tela branca e não conclui, e nao liga mais..
    Issu acontece pq nao pode instalar o firmware anterior?
    Tem como voltar o firmware anterior com outro modo?
    Desde já agradeço pela força!

  166. naresh says:

    I am little confused about choosing a correct firmware for me . i have v 51.0.002.C01.01 custom firmware installed in my nokia 5230(rm-588) (i upgraded it by FOTA). Now i know that i have to choose a custom firmware that should be based on a firmware ver. greater then or equle to my current v. (that is 51.0.002).now my question is that should i have to take both firmware(custam and original (downloaded via navifirm)) with same version or there may be any freedom in choosing them… Pls reply if anyone know about this

    Thnx in advance and sorry for my english.

  167. Praku wary says:

    @Joel, if you read the article thoroughly, you will have no issue with non existing /nokia/pheonix/products issue. Do not flash your phone unless you read the article/post from A to Z at least twice (for newbie).

    @Rameez, no worries. Although it sound scary, it is not actually. If you happen to brick your phone, just reflash it (using JAF) with your phone original firmware (download it using Navifirm).

    THE BEST TUTORIAL EVR…FLASHED SUCCESSFULLY…

  177. VATSAL says:

    wan2 ask a que…if im on a CFW and i wan2 change it to another CFW dan can i directly change it ? or i hav2 load OFW 1st on my fon n dan only can try another CFW ? rpl soon…thx in advance…and if yes dan is the procedure is same ?

  178. expertester says:

    @Vatsal,
    You can directly install other CFW. Just to be safe, reset your phone to factory default setting first. Same method (Even Symbian Anna work flawlessly)

    my RM-625 has become 220 mb something after copying cfw files into original firmfare did i do all the steps ok

    Hi Nice Tutorial and i want to ask some question,i have 4 file do i have to chance the name of the
    cfw file to the name of my ofw file??

  192. betulin says:

    hi, very good tutorial. I hope you can understand my English. I’ve read your tutorial and some others. Unfortunately, I’m still having doubts in the following matter. This is my confusion: I’ve got a cwf with 7 files, same number as my original firmware RM-356 downloaded from navifirm. The differences between them is just in 3 of the 7 files. More specifically in a portion of the files name. My files, from navifirm, include a number which is the same of my product code and the cwf files have a different number. My question is what should I do?. Options: a) change the cwf file name, I mean, just the different part of the file name,the number, with my original file name which include my product code or b) should I change my product code to the number included in the cwf file and then use these files to flash? An example: 1) My originals files downloaded with navifirm: ” RM356 0558982 60.0.003 001 signature.bin”–“RM356 0558982 60.0.003 001.vpl”– “RM356 0558982 60.0.003 001.dcp”. 2) cwf files: “RM356 0559051 60.0.003 001.dcp”–“RM356 0559051 60.0.003 001.vpl”—“RM356 0559051 60.0.003 001 signature.bin” Many Thanks
