Article [How to] Reflash your Nokia E90 with a different firmware/language pack

How to (re)flash your Nokia E90 with a different firmware/language pack.

Because I see this question popping up more often and I now even got a PM about this subject, I decided to post a quick How-To about reflashing your Nokia E90 to a different language version.

First of all you will need to download and install the Nokia PC Suite.


You will need this program to 1. make a backup of your phone and 2. you will need it for the USB drivers.
The Nokia PC Suite page can be found here: Nokia PC Suite page
You can find a direct download to the latest version 6.84 here: Nokia PC Suite 6.84


Now we will install the Nokia Software Updater (NSU) to flash the new firmware to your phone.
you can download the NSU program from this page: Nokia Software Updater
You can find a direct download to the latest version here: Nokia Software Updater

You can check for the availability of a new firmware on this page: Firmware Availability

In case of a Nokia E90 with a product code from Singapore (0544485) you can see that currently the latest firmware is version 07.24.0.3


Finally you will need to download and install the Nemesis Service Suite.
You can find more info about the NSS on the following page: Official NSS Page
Download and install the NSS for this direct link (Version NSS103812): NSS103812.zip
Unzip and Install, you can choose any option but the Virtual USB drive should be okay.
Notice: Without the Nokia PC Suite the NSS will not detect your Nokia phone! Always install the Nokia PC Suite first!

[I do not include screenshots for the following steps, if required PM me ]

Step 1.
Connect your Nokia E90 with the included USB cable and select "PC Suite" as the selectable mode.

Step 2.
Let the Nokia PC Suite detect your telephone and let windows install the required drivers.
This might take a few seconds.

Step 3.
Fire up the Nemesis Service Suite Program.

Step 4.
When in the main program, click on the "scan" button in the top-right of your screen. (the magnifying glass button ;-) )

Step 5.
After NSS detected your phone without errors, click on the "Phone Info" button.

Step 6.
Look for the "Product Data Edit" section to the right of your screen and click the "Read" button to read the current values of your Nokia E90.

Step 7.
You can now enable the "Product Code" line and alter your current Product Code to the required Product Code.

Step 8.
Click on the "Write" button to write the new value to your Nokia E90.

Step 9.
You can now close the NSS and continue by opening the Nokia Software Update program.

Step 10.
Go through all the steps of the NSU program and finally update your firmware.

Currently the firmware for the EMEA and APAC region are the same version except they of course contain different languages and such.
Because of this you might be asked by the NSU program is you really want to reflash your current firmware.
You must click yes or you will end up with the wrong firmware once more.

Note:

If you bought your Nokia E90 in the UK you will have the same keyboard layout as the APAC version.
I verified this with my own Nokia E90 which is a UK EMEA 1 version.
For a picture of the APAC keyboard you can click here.

I altered the product code of my own Nokia E90 from a UK EMEA 1 model to an APAC Singapore version.

From:
0514979: EMEA 1 - UK red
To:
0544485: APAC Singapore - Colour unknown

The EMEA 1 model has the following languages:
English, Dutch, Russian and a 4th language (Either Turkish or Spanish)

I currently have the following languages:
English, Simplified Chinese, Melayu, Indonesian

Remember that when flashing to a different region, you may loose certain pre-installed region specific programs.
In my case I gained a Chinese-English-Chinese dictionary

I will post a list with known product codes for the Nokia E90, both EMEA and APAC in a follow up post.

If you have any questions, advice, comments or just want to flame.... let me know

There is no product code to change if you just want to upgrade your firmware.
This is only necessary if you would like to change from for example an European E90 to a Singapore E90 to be able to use Chinese.

What you want can be found here: Firmware Upgrade

You can fill in your product code and check if you can upgrade or not.

The latest firmware at this time is 07.24.0.3 and this is the same for all regions.

You can check this on your mobile phone by typing *#0000*

What about an E90 bought in the USA, does it also have so much differences with the EMEA models?

What exactly is your question?

The Nokia E90 is the same wherever you buy it.

The only difference is the language pack and sometimes some added software.

If you buy a branded E90, then the story is different as they can alter the firmware themselves to represent their brand.

It is not said that every possible combination is available.

You now flashed the greek product code.
But I do not know if there is a english/greek/german combination.

English / Spanish firmware / Language pack ?

About a month ago I bough from a wholesaler in Miami a E90 which seems to be imported from Hong Kong.

Of course it has the APAC keyboard layout.

Since they market to south american customers they flashed it with a language pack that came with english and spanish.

Once I tried it, I noticed that the spanish language pack required a spanish keyboard layout, and was a mess and very cumbersome to use with the APAC keyboard layout.

I complained to the seller and after a couple of days the best they could do was to flash it with 0544491 product code (as reported by NSS) which include ONLY English, Filipino and Indonesio languages (I guess is the original product code which came first).

Of course I don't need Filipino nor Indonesio languages.

Which product code have at least english and spanish but keep the APAC keyboard layout when language is set to spanish ?

Also after I downloaded the Nokia software updater, the installation was unsuccesfull and it keep telling me "minimum memory requirement is 256Mb" .

I closed all unneeded memory resident programs loaded when the computer is started but it didn't help.

I deeply appreciate any input !!!!!!!

By the way for those of you who would like to pair the phone to a Parrot 3200 hands free you should install the Nokia 810 contact downloader application on the phone which will allow it to sincronize the phone contacts to the Parrot handsfree every time you get inside the vehicle and turn it on.
