For me it does not work.
Here what happens:
1) after reboot (step 2) the setup starts to register a huge number of files. I got 2 errors (something like missing dongle) and at the end the setup says: error registering some components
2) after the reboot of step 3 it happens exactly the same with 2 errors.

All the rest goes fine... I get the cable installed, connected.

When I try to flash at 1% (before beginning, luckly) I got an error when the program says "putting in normal mode" or something like that.
And in the description of the error it looks like a "component not registered"-

Can you help me?

Second question is:
how to create a firmware?
I've found in the links thi list:
6680_RM-36_dp_v_8.00_MCUSW5.050407_EURO
6680_RM-36_dp_v_8.01_MCUSW5.050407_EURO
6680_RM-36_dp_v_8.02_MCUSW5.050407_EURO
6680_RM-36_dp_v_8.03_MCUSW5.050407_EURO
6680_RM-36_dp_v_8.05_MCUSW5.050407_EURO
RM-36_dp_v_8.00_MCUSW5.050407_EURO
RM-36_dp_v_8.04_MCUSW5.050407_EURO
RM-36_dp_v_8.06_MCUSW5.050407_EURO

Which one do I have to choose? The 8.0x require a 8.0 before...
but hich one? RM-36_dp_v_8.00_MCUSW5.050407_EURO or 6680_RM-36_dp_v_8.00_MCUSW5.050407_EURO?
They are complitely different in size.
Anyway this file is corrupted: 6680_RM-36_dp_v_8.00_MCUSW5.050407_EURO.exe
from both the links :(

I have to dowload all the files and execute the sequence from 8.00 to 8.06? and then use the result to flash?

You have written to use the .v30 file, but is a multilanguage one or what? because some docs I've found give a map of language/operator with the .Vxx file.


Thanks in advance,
Mf

See the FAQ at Nokia Software Updater site.

Look at the FAQ number 22 and 23.

hello

hello....i'm italian i'm trying to unlock my 6680.

i've found on ogmdeveloper.it, italian web site, the reference of bb5 reaper, that is a visual guide to upgrade/unlock the phone.

Is highly recommended to download the firmware in this order.... if we are 8.00 and is ready the 8.07, we have to install 8.0 8.01 8.02....to....8.07
In fact installing 8.01 it ask the 8.00 installation before. The problem is that the 8.00 is a corrupted installer.... Someone have it working?
