If you are in North American (RM507, 850/1900/2100) and want Asian characters, you need firmware/product code from RM505 (900/1900/2100). Change the product code to RM505 loses 850 band and 900 band will not work either.

It has different hardware inside. Nokia's program designer didn't think about everyone.

There are many different immigrants from different countries to North American. They need the phone (3G) part, but they also want to read MP3 tag in their original language because that's the music they listen to.

JAF is a power tool to flash Nokia even when it's dead. You can pick any part of the firmware file and flash it as you like. NSU is smart and great program, but not good enough imo.

How to Change the Product Code on a Nokia N97

How to Unbrand Your Nokia N97

Both seems pretty fool-proof to me and if I'd have to choose just one, I'd go for the first.

Just wanted to share

you lose your 3G 850/900 if the product code is changed from RM507 to RM505 or vice versa.

Try using Phoenix. That's what I have always used to flash my phone and never had any problems. If you do want to stick with Jaf however, try an XP or Vista machine. Some Windows 7 users have reported problems with Jaf.
N97 mini - Gone!

Desire HD - Here to stay!


bricked, n97
