[Tutorial] How to Flash Nokia Devices (Java & Symbian ONLY)

#1
(This post was last modified: 07-08-2017, 01:03 AM by X3non. )

I’ll be explaining how to flash your Nokia phone or update the firmware. Flashing a phone means re-installing the phone’s firmware, i.e re-installing the operating system of the phone. When a phone’s OS is corrupt due to virus attack, incompatible applications etc, flashing might be the only solution when restoring factory settings doesn’t work. Flashing a phone can also be used to update the firmware to a newer version, revive a dead phone, etc.

Requirements


Note

  •  While flashing, the process shouldn't be interrupted due to insufficient charge on the battery or due to disconnection of the usb cord as it may result to a totally damaged phone.
  • Always try to search well for the latest firmware before downloading / flashing. Using a firmware below the current firmware on the phone would result in a partially bricked phone (this is because downgrading isn't allowed)
  • If for some unknown reasons this method doesn't work, you can try the infinity best method @ https://forum.hovatek.com/thread-14299.html

i did all that but at the final process where i have to click on ok after pulling the battery and reinserting it, the pc shows a blue screen saying it ran into a problem and the pc will restart. I've tried on two different pc's, same story. Used a different variant of the flash files for nokia 300, same story still. Is there something i'm doing wrong?
