N96 Firmware updating

Hi, I have decided to buy an N96. I am going to buy it off ebay and if it has network branding firmware on it, will I be able to flash it with generic firmware? Is so, will I be able to find it in this forum?? Is it as straight forward as flashing an N95 8GB??? I am Sorry if these questions have been already posted in here, but at the momemt I dont have the time to look. Thansk in advance guys

Thanks. All I need now is an N96. The N95 8GB, I did have one or two teething problems with it but once I realised what I was doing wrong, it was very straight forward. Thankls for your help

watch out though, just tried flashing mine and now wont turn on, found this while trying to search the net for a fix,

iv done plenty of n95's and others in the past so not sure if just time for my bad luck


my n96 came with default productcode 0573802
changed in nss to 0568238
tried updating via nokia updater got halfway, said to put phone in recovery by unplugging and plugging back in, after doing that it seems to starts flashing again and stopping at the same point

tried plugign phone in other pc which is detected under windows as nokia update rom cant get nokia updater to detect it though and it wont come on
mayby time to send it back

am wondering if the productcode change may have affected it (like i say though hav changed sevaral n95's product codes and flashed successfully)

Please be aware changing the Product Code invalidates the warranty on yout 500+ handset.

I hear people who say this all the time. So what if it invalidates the warranty. This is in addition to your consumer rights. If your phone is faulty then they must repair under the sale of goods act. Quite simple really unless the fault was caused as a direct result of the product code being changed or updating the firmware.
