The idea of changing the product code using NSS was to allow people to upgrade their 'branded' phones to a 'non branded' firmware using the official Nokia Update Service (NSU). For example if you had a Vodafone N80 and connected it to the NSU you would be told there were no updates, once you had changed the product code using NSS it was then possible to update to the latest firmware using NSU
Ok...so I can delete the part about NSS ?...this is the way that I did it and thats why I wrote the guide like that because I know it works .....
I didnt try flashing without prior changing the code, so I didnt write the guide like that..
In any case it doesnt harm the product, and the firmware will then be chosen automatically for you ... maybe a little easier for people who are not too technically minded perhaps..
