The green icons are for you to maunually select the firmware bits and bobs, easier to just copy the ini's over and let it select them for you.

I have no idea what CRT308 doe's.

Cheers for the thanks but there is no need i've just used what I have learned and stuck it in one post. We all have AAS and symbianfreak to thank for that.

This guide is for people who are having trouble with NSU and Ovi updater, the guide you have linked too is using them.

Well, it seems Nokia have failed us Brits once again. Their promise of having v20 rolled out by the end of October was unfulfilled. Sure it was done for pretty much everyone else in the world, but the UK have fallen short of this big update

Debranded my 3 handset yesterday using the JAF method, and installed V20.

I can't say there's an enormous difference... although perhaps things like stability improvements will become apparent once I've used it for a while.

The thumbnails of album art don't seem to be working for me in music player. It's visible in the "now playing" screen, but not in the list of albums (well, it is on one or two albums but not the majority). Does anyone else have this problem?

Also - I have about 20GB of music on there and it seems to struggle with this (can take quite a long time to switch between lists etc). I'd hoped V20 might improve this but it doesn't seem to have. What's the point of giving us 32GB memory if the device doesn't seem capable of handling it happily?

It looks like the camera application has been tweaked a bit... I get the impression it focuses a bit more quickly now. Hopefully this also means the various camera bugs in V11 have gone for good.

By the way, when I flashed the phone using JAF, it got to a point where it said something like "pooling phone" but then it lost connection (I think something funny was going on with drivers; windows was trying to install one or something) and couldn't reconnect, so it abandoned the procedure.

On my phone a screen appeared saying "Local Mode".

I turned the phone off & on again and luckily everything seemed to be fine - with new V20 in place.

I'm just wondering whether there was some final part of the flashing process that didn't happen, that should have happened, that might cause me problems in the future? Does anyone know about this?

Phone rebooted but not in flash mode...
JAF can read my phone product code and let me change it, it just won't let me flash the firmware. The problem is it always tries to reboot the phone, then before the phone even wakes up (it take a very long time for the phone to restart), JAF will report "Phone rebooted but not in flash mode". The phone itself is literally unchanged (although it looks like dead before it wakes up itself).

It seems the problem is that the phone cannot get into "flash mode". But I have no idea what causes it and how to proceed. I couldn't find any helpful info on the web either. So please, help me!

Why use JAF? If you are de-branding, NSS/NSU is so much simpler? If you are not de-branding, the NSU is the official way to flash FW!

I tried with NSU almost one whole night, but have the same problems that Lasikie and MrAaronVenn have experienced with this program. That's why I decided to use Lasikie's guide and use JAF because I was very hopeful of their results, but unfortunately I cannot succeed with this program either

Unfortunately, some user's PC's seem to have problems with NSU etc.
It is worth disabling any Security software on your PC (firewall, virus checker, etc) before launching NSU.
Also, if you were using a PC in your office, then the IT dept's proxy server may be blocking access.

Assuming you are not on Windows 7 (not officially supported by NSU), then you may have to talk nicely to a friend with a PC or Laptop and ask if you can install NSU and try to update your phone.

Thanks for the advice. I'm using Windows XP SP3. There is no problem with NSU downloading firmware from the internet. The problem is after that when the phone is to be flashed. I've also tried to update the firmware with OVI Suite, but it also gives Internal error.

If someone have any idea why my phone wont go into flash mode when trying to update it with JAF, please help!

hi

i have not been on here much and not for a while :(

after running NSU the program told me that an update was available v20, so i downloaded the 146Meg and proceeded with the update, from there it keeps failing at the updating stage and says 'plug usb directly into pc and try again' still no joy????

then i came here skipped from page 1 to here page 8

is i correct that the update is not for uk phones?? and is this the reason it wont update??

what a pain if the above is correct, NSU is not that good it should have a little foot note on the install screen saying 'BTW if you in the UK TOUGH SH[T'

steve


I have just read all the previous pages and i am sort of glad it failed!

maybe someone can help me? the reason that i tried the update in the first place is that my phone shows full signal but when i try and make a call i get 'connection error' message. this has been happening for the last 2 days. i am at home and in a good reception area

any ideas?

cheers
