Hi Mic,

Sorry I cant help here .. I have had no experience with bricking a phone and then having to remedy, all the phones I flashed so far have thankfully flashed first time and OK, So I cant really advise on what you need to do.

There are others here who have managed to bring their dead phones to life .. I think Dez has some experience with this and I am sure he or others can advise better than me ...

Hope you get it working

Another successful update

Thanks for the detailed instructions. Just managed to flash my phone with 0539363 EURO 1 Pearl Black Internet Edition. Havent started using it yet but hopefully everything works. The # key still works to switch to/from Silent/Normal profiles.

One question (or obervation) - instructions say that the phone has (or recommended) to be fully charged. I was charging my unit using a USB charger and forgot to remove it when i started the flashing process - i hope it hasnt somehow wrecked anything inside. So far everything still works.

Thanks again Cash - you rock!!!!

I dont think anything would be damaged inside your phone...I think its just incase there may be a power surge or something that would disrupt the flashing process..

Now you need to get truphone to take advantage of the N80i ..

Unhappy

Hi,
I can't change the operation mode to normal (in phoenix).
So I can't update my phone... because it's in the wrong operation mode.

Can anyone help me please??

I also tried to flash my phone, at 80% I got an connection error message. Now my N80 is dead.

I tried to reset my phone as you suggested. But it didn't help.

Are there any other solutions???

Cool. I've got Gizmo on and tested - lags a little but otherwise ok. Not as good as Skype i feel but since Skype isnt on the N80, it's as good as i can get now. Only challenge now is to get my mates to get on Gizmo so I can benefit from it. At the moment, everyone's on Skype.

For those who have bricked their phone, I successfully revived mine by following the guide by WPKenny on this url http://www.allaboutsymbian.com/forum...t=53110&page=4. I used is modified instructions and not the ones given in the PDF. Now have a fully working N80 IE

Unfortunately because the flash failed at 80% instead of 100%, your phone is almost certainly now in a condition that only trained Nokia Service Engineers can repair.

If you got your phone through a UK Network contract, phone your mobile operator and just claim it stopped working. They will advise you what their returns process is, or tell you where your nearest Nokia Care Centre is located.

Provided you have the original invoice or despatch note for the handset, the repair will be free of charge. If you bought the phone off eBay contact the seller and ask them if they are willing to send you the original invoice, or have the handset repeaired on your behalf.



Alternatively,... older versions of Phoenix contained a dead-phone flash function. I still have the setup files for Phoenix 2004 and could upload them to rapidshare for you tonight. However i am not 100% sure if this version (a) has the Dead Flash Mode and (b) supports the N80. It's up to you if you want to try or not. I doubt you can make the N80 any more dead than it already is.

Best of luck!

I cant get the NSS program to change the product code... I know ratkat says its not necessary, but considering that I'm UNABLE to do it I'm worried that I shouldn't go on until I'm atleast able to perform this step.

Anyone?

Hi!

I have the same problem too, Nemesis wont detect my N80. When installing Nemesis I can not see USB drivers to be installed. Any ideas?

Regards,

HiH

Flash my N80 lat night. All seems to work OK. It was lock free (01). Now it is N80I PB (01)
EDIT: I did not change the CODE with NSS. Phoenix warn about it and modify the code
during the proccess

Just thought i'd mention. If you have previously flashed the firmware before, to remove previous firmwares from your computer, Thus eliminating the chance of phoenix not selecting the right combination of files

Cash.

Something that it might be worth adding your guide


'Once you have connected your phone via pop port/usb to your computer, don't under any circumstances touch or move the phone or usb lead until the flashing is complete'



Nokia 'Pop Port' is a very poor connection method and the slightest movement can disconnect it, thankfully the forthcoming N95 is moving to the much more reliable 'mini USB'
