How to flash / Phoenix flashing tutorial

We've been getting a lot of inquiries on how to flash a Nokia phone
so I decided to make a new flashing tutorial.
and not as a txt or a FAQ, but rather as a blog post.

so...here it is

Please write anything you notice, do differently or know more "THINGS that could happen" in the comments


  • First of all you need the flashing tool:


I recommend Phoenix 2012.04.xxx for N8, C7, E7, X7, C6-01, E6, 700, 701, 603 & 500
and                Phoenix 2012.16.xxx for 808,

if you ever installed a higher version of Phoenix, then you must deinstall it first.
Get it and install it to Windows with your Anti-Virus OFF.
You have to trust me on this one. If you can't trust me, then stop here, because if you don't turn your anti-virus off, then you can NOT flash
If you don't believe me, then Google it, and every flashing or installation guide worldwide will tell you the same.

  • Second you need to download your files.

preferbly Delight custom firmwares, but any full set of files, for original or custom firmware will do as well

Delight cfw's files come in self-extracting .zip files, so just double click them to extract.
Extract them somewhere, where you can find them easily, for instance Desktop

"Why don't I just extract it directly to the RM folder?" because if you don't have full access configured in your computer, then extracting stuff to C: will get denied.

  • Third you need to put your files into the flashing folder

the flashing folder has to BE MADE in C:\Program Files (x86)\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\
and it is the RM Number of your phone.

RM-XXX = Capital Letters - NO spaces

in the picture below I have N8, C7, and 808 configured


  • Fourth - connect phone to Phoenix

there are two ways to connect to phoenix. both are in the Phoenix main window under "Files"
- either you connect the phone first, and in the right bottom corner it will show connected. then you SCAN product
   -> don't know if Scan works if you are flashing a dead phone, as I always use OPEN Product

- or you open product manually and choose your RM-XXX Number
in this case I wanna flash my Nokia 808, so I chose RM-807

  • Next step in Phoenix
Push "Flashing" --> "Firmware Update"
  • New window appears
now there are 2 ways to go about this, depending on what you want to / need to do:
- dead flash
= your phone doesn't turn on anymore and you need to get it back to life
--> in this case, the top dropdown window should read: "NO CONNECTION" and the [ ] dead phone USB flashing should be ticked
! Update Software will not work here
- live flash
you want to flash via Software update or refurbish and the phone is still working
--> in this case the dead phone USB flashing box can not be ticked 
--> and the top dropdown window should read USBX - RM-XXX 
(X stands for numbers, depending on which USB you are connected to and which phone you are flashing)

NOTICE: 
ONLY ONE FIRMWARE SET in the RM- FOLDER at once - ALWAYS ERASE OLD FILES FROM HERE FIRST

  • SO...
either way the line "Product Code", "SW Version" and "Variant" must be filled now
- if you connected live and chose your USBX, then it will be added automatically
- if you have a dead phone, then you must push the button at the end of Line "product code" and choose the only available set
  -> why only one available set? - BECAUSE I said ONLY ONE Firmware set in the RM Folder!
this is the product code and description from Delight base files.

  • Before flashing:
push "OPTIONS" and you will receive this window:
 in this case I am flashing a custom firmware. a custom firmware won't have the .emmc.fpsx (a.k.a. emmc) in it. Most of the time you will only use the emmc, when flashing back to original firmware, for example when you want to sell your phone

so in my case I will click the red emmc and then push delete.

-------------------------------------------
If you want to Update a firmware without of removing content from drive C:\, mark the file which ends with "uda.fpsx", than push delete.
This is the case if you update a Delight CFW to a higher release, check the related informations in every Delight CFW release post.
Than you should press Update Software instead of Refurbish (see next step).
-------------------------------------------

! NEVER EVER - click any of the boxes in the flashing options window. You can't do that stuff on free versions of Phoenix. 
! NO - you can NOT downgrade if clicking the first button - you can ONLY downgrade Generation^1 phones, and then you would NOT click that box either !!!
! If you refurbish without of UDA.fpsx your phone doesn't boot at first startup, remove the battery or with a N8 press power key for 12 seconds, than boot.

back to the window before with OK
then Refurbish or Update Software.

  • While flashing
you will see a flash log running in the Output window
as soon as it says programming complete, it is actually done.

in some occasions, you can pull the USB now and either take battery out or on N8 you would press the power button for 12 sec, which is the same as battery out
and then start the phone

  • Thats it 

THINGS THAT COULD HAPPEN:
(I'll update this section always when I remember something or see something)

  1. "waiting for communication"-countdown - if you ever get the countdown, starting at 25, then pull the USB - BEFORE - it gets to "0" - Zero and then pull battery and then insert and start the phone - its done flashing, so it is OK the way it is. 
  2. "phoenix crashed - Pheonix Dump window" - IF the phone is being flashed in the background, then DO NOT press OK in that window, just ignore it and wait till phone flashing is done
  3. "Dongle not found" window - either your RM folder isn't named right, or it is in the wrong spot, or you do not have a "free" version of Phoenix
  4. Phone gets flashed, but is always original firmware - if you ever updated your phone via Nokia Suite, then the files that Nokia Suite used could cause problems in Phoenix. SO you must go to your Computers Windows settings and tell it to show hidden folders. then go to C:/ProgramData/Nokia/packages and delete the firmware files

  2. For all those brave flashers, here's a little gift as an extra introduction from my side. It's how I set up my Phone after flashing to set it up to minimal maintenance afterwards.

    Here you go, including a few installers, an AdBlock solution OS wide, and a little readme that you should read BEFORE doing anything the folders might indicate ;-)

    5. yeah, i know.but in the "read me" files, it's almost compulsory to able the patches he mentioned.and i've accidentally change the boot anim.how can i get the delight 6.3 default boot anim?do i need to reflash or can you kindly give the anim files to replace in the 'data' folder?

    7. i found out that the RunInstallServerNotForRom patch is the one causing the installation error.other patch is fine.i've tried enabling it 1-by-1.am i a slowpoke or this really does help?

  3. Following the above steps I get RM-807 not recognized. When I go to Open Product it doesn't list my 808. In connections drop down it does, but I get an error message after scan: Cannot load, the product "RM-807" is not recognized. ???

    6. Figured out my issue and got my 808 flashed. The process worked flawlessly for me and my 808 is running great. What I had to do was everything you listed (of course) and then I had to change the "compatibility mode" on my PC to Windows XP SP3. My machine is a Windows 7 64 bit OS and even with full permissions and no hidden files it would list not my Product. Again thanks for your assistance. Delight is really great!!

    1. all N8 have a Arm with 800mHz , downclocked by Nokia to 680. There is no way to change that. And if someone says he did so, then he is wrong

    2. we can't edit ROM and ROMPatcher can't edit everything
      right now it's impossible

      Samsung i8910 clocking was possible, it has a non Nokia ROM format

      Nokia ROM is signed by a private key, without we can't change it.

  13. Hi Eric.

    I intend using your firmware for RM-807,
    but I need my language on the phone to be able to type.

    Is it quite save to substitute the French PPM
    (see the screenshot with Firmware update advanced options)
    with a corresponding Russian one?

    Actually, I have successfully tested this approach on earlier N79 and E72,
    but haven't tried it out on more recent N8 and N808.

    Dmitry

    1. if you are flashing with phoenix 2012.16 or 2012.24, then just get the translated rofs2 I provide with russian in it (it will still say french in the name, but will have russian in it)
      DO NOT JUST GET ANY RUSSIAN OFW PART and flash with it.... we provide all languages in the release post

      Delete
    2. Hi Eric.

      Thank you for your answer. Honestly, if I were more attentive, reading your descriptions, I would able to figure out the right answer myself: your did re-partitioning of firmware components.

      I have tried to setup Phoenix and Delight firmware on VirtualBox Win 7 64 bit. Needless to say, I came across the same issue Charles Hinkle was able to tackle some time ago.
      The remedy you have suggested, "compatibility mode to Windows XP SP3.", just worked fine: I installed Proenix & Delight files "from scratch" on instant Windows XP SP 3 and Phoenix recognized the firmware files, put to Products directory.

      My question to you. Did you try your tutorial on WinXP, installed on any VM?

      Regards
      Dmitry

    I am about to install Delight 6.3 on my Nokia N8. I am just wondering if all my previous application installations will still be available after installing Delight? or will I have to download and install those apps from the Nokia App store.. which brings me to my second question.... Will Nokia store still recognise my device and all the software installations after 'Delight'ing my phone?

    2. Hello Eric,

      Thanks for your reply. I am sorry i did not put in an important part in my question. I am currently running belle refresh on my N8. So should I just follow your flashing guide page? or will i have to create a backup of my applications elsewhere, via the nokia suite or my Win 7 Explorer? I just read on a different post that I will have to backup all data using nokia suite and not by using the phones in built back up system ... right?

      Delete
    3. Yes, backup with inbuilt backup function and Nokia Suite. Since you are using Belle refresh, you can restore it afterwards. At least it will work with everything, except maybe settings and data, depending on what you have on your phone.
      then flash it via refurbish. restore your data and enjoy

      Delete
    4. Flashed phone with Delight, and it is a Delight indeed!!!! Great work man. Kudos to you and your team. My favorite phone has now become even more dearer to me. I have a few suggestions and requests for you guys if you can introduce those mods in the firmware as well.

      1. The power saving mode does not work after a restart. It does ask weather I want to deactivate power saving mode, however it is off no matter what i select.
      2. Can we have something like a T9 dictionary editor? which can give us an interface to add words from a .txt file. Then we can create this file on PC, save it on phone, and add all the words to the T9 dictionary in one shot.
      3. Is there any way you can create a stereo-to-mono toggle for the sound output? IT will help in getting both channels in the left channel only, keeping the right channel off. This will be useful when using the phone while driving and listening to music.
      4. Can you or Mr Alshahawy create a shortcut button to start video recording directly? Like a one touch button on home screen to start camera and video recording. This will help save a lot of time starting the camera, selecting video recording mode. Cos by this time the moment has gone.

      Thank you.

    5. Hello Eric,

      A few more problems/questions.

      1. the Volume in headphones is WAY too loud for me. How can I get the Default levels back please?
      2. The nokia store or whatsapp messenger are giving errors whenever I try to save anything in Drive E. It looks like they are not having write access to drive E. as they are saving perfectly when i chose the memory card instead.

      thank you.

    6. 1. Turn on the "Moresoundinloudspeaker " patch, it has a side effect to lower the headset volume. 2. I don't know, never happened before. Do you have a security lock on it?

      Delete
    7. Thanks for your response Eric.

      I just tried it and it makes the volume softer however also reduces the sound quality. You have mentioned renaming defaultvolume.fpsx and then flashing. will it help getting the sound back to original volume without compromising the quality?

      Thanks.

      Delete
    8. no, just renaming a file won't work. But if you are using the N8, or C7 or 500, then you can flash with the default sound rofs3 by extracting it

      Delete
  39. Ok thanks and even when i connect my headphone its volume low down than before how to fix this? in delight v6.0

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Use Rompatcher patches to get higher Volume. But do NOT turn on "MoreSoundInLoudspeaker", because it has the side effect of making the headphones quiet again

    2. Thanks alot again really appreciate :) and can i have a steps in detail how to update my delight v6.099 to v6.3 please..

      Delete
    3. easy: get v6.3 base files and language files if needed. flash via Software Update without uda (the place where you delete the red emmc, you delete the uda)
      after flash go and use Delight app, run Updater, yes to update to v6.2, yes to Update to v6.3
      done

      Delete
  40. thanks alot again working :)
    reallly appreciate gr8 job eric :)

  41. hello, sorry for the language but I'm Italian, I have only 2 questions.
    1-before flashing it is recommended that you format the phone by removing the micro sd and sim?
    2-in folder RM-807 I have to enter all two files "808 v1.2 Delight" and "Delight 808 v1.1 & v1.2 rofs2 italian"?
    how do you? help me I am very much inclined to change with your custom firmware .... but I will not do stupid things ....

    1. it is not mandatory to remove Sim and Sdcard. It's also not mandatory to format E or F, which only has to be done , if a malfunctioning install is causing problems. 2. You have to extract the Delight.exe files you downloaded. The base files rofs2 is only english, you extract the italian one and copy it over the other one and replace when prompted. All you have to do is read posts and tutorials, and it will be fine

    2. thank you very much very nice ... installed perfectly, just a small problem, sometimes the red button to end the call, also used to close applications not work, unless you are in the homescreen, pressing the button displays the menu for saving energy , then turn off only works in that case. Why? repeat sometimes, it's a bug?

    3. long press to rwboot is a mod and not a bug.

  43. Hi! I'm flashing the phone for the first time. Went through the complete guide. Now I'm stuck at the last step. After deleting the file in red with .emmc.fpsx and clicking OK I'm left with no option to refurbish or to software update. Those options are available only if I tick Dead phone USB flashing. Should I tick that and continue?

    1. if it is your first flash you have to refurbish. Phone off = dead flash. Phone On = live flash

  50. Hi Eric. Performed a clean install of Phoenix for N8 on my Windows 7 32 bit. There's no folder Program Files (x86) on 32 bit system. There's indeed C:\Program Files\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\. I created RM-596 folder and put RM-596_111.040.1511_02.01_Euro_2_79u_prd.rofs2.fpsx into it.

    Phoenix can connect to my phone, but Firmware update dialog cannot find Product Code. When I press ... button it says "Neither DP1.0 nor DP2.0 was found for the Product, or the Product cannot be identified."

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. the rofs2 by itself isn't enough to flash a phone
      you need the rest of the files from "base files - only english files"
      you put those in your RM-596 folder and then you copy your language file over that

      it should be a set of 7 or 8 files when you are done

      Delete
    2. Yes! That do the trick. Will perform real flashing when I have more time. Thanks

  59. Hello Eric.
    I tried to flash my Nokia 808 with delight Delight v 1.3 and v 1.2 and a didn't manage to finish the operation. I installed Phoenix 2012.16 from the link You provided, using Windows XP SP 3 compatibility mode, antivirus off, I created the folder RM-807 in the location You indicated and put in it the necessary files (all of them, from a single version), I turned off the antivirus and close Nokia Suite from Task Manager, Y was able to find my phone in Connection dropdown window, USBX, than scan product (this was the only way to do) but, when I hit Flashing/Firmware Update I couldn't find the necessary information in Product code, SW version and Variant. I wanted to do a live flashing (not dead phone flash). I even tried to chose product code from the button aside Product Code, I found only one product code, as You mentioned, than filled all the information needed in Firmware Update dropdown window, after that Refurbish, but the flashing process doesn't end ; I get a message "could not initiate/enter flashing mode" or something... I also disabled all patches from Rompatcher and even did a hard reset of the phone. This was my first flashing attempt. Same thing happen when I tried to flash my old N8.
    Please help.

    2. Yes, the phone does connect to my computer in whatever mode I chose ; I can see it in windows and all drivers are correctly installed ; when flashing the phone was connected in Nokia Suite mode ; yes, I tried a dead flash on my N8, without succes ; on my computer I use windows 7 x64 ultimate, SP 1

    4. what did it do with dead flash ?

      Delete
    5. OK, I finally managed to make a dead phone flash ; I believe it was a problem with the antivirus ; deactivating Bitdefender is not a straight forward process, au contraire, ; in the end the flashing was possible, but still I wasn't able to do a live flash (the necessary information in Product code, SW version and Variant were not there). Maybe you can help me with this, because, in the future, I want to update the firmware. One problem : I didn't like the effects of the theme, so I disabled them, but still screen rotation effect is active ; how could this be deactivated ? Maybe you can put in the download section the original FP 2 theme effects package.
      Thank You so much for your answers.

  60. Hello,

    I'm a total newbie to flashing. So, apologies if the questions are silly.

    1. Should I select my product type on connections drop-down or leave it on "No Connection"?

    2. In "Product Codes available in current Data-Package" sub-form, do I have to use product code 0599842 or should I check "Detect Product Automatically"? Asking phoenix to detect product automatically does not seem to give me any information.

    I'm doing a "Live" flash.

    Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. when doing a live flash you have to choose the Usb with the RM in the drop-down window. After that the dara in the flashing window should automatically load itself , if not choose it manually. - since you are a newbie I want to remind you to backup your data and when flashing a cfw you should refurbish. - I'll be on google talk now , if you need more help

    2. Hello,

      I have set the connection to USBx - RM-596. I have tried both scan product and open product options. However, when I click on Flashing > Firmware update, the product code, SW version and Variant are empty. I do get these when I go in and select the product code mentioned above.

      Could you please tell me if there is something else I need to do to get Phoenix to read in the missing data? Should I opt for the product code you have provided, instead?

      I bit of detail I forgot to add in my last post is that I am trying to install delight CFW on my N8.

      Thanks.

      Delete
    3. Thanks for your quick response, Eric. I tried with the connection chosen from the drop down (USBx - RM-596). However, when I go to Flashing > Firmware update, the product code, sw version and variant are not filled up. Should I use the product code 0599842 that seems to be default for this CFW?

      Delete
    4. like I said , if it doesn't do it automatically , then do it manually. Which is the same as choosing the only available product code. If you get it that way, then that's the way to go ;)

      Delete
    5. Thank you, Eric.
      If CFW install fails first time around (& I was able to bring my phone back up to regular belle), should I use refurbish or software update the second time around?

      I've given the log below.

    11. That is great. Looking forward to it. My phone has never been cleaner.

      I did have a look at the delight app. It has a delightful list of utilities and customizations which will make moving to a more restrictive OS even harder.
      I'm a fan of Nokia's hardware, but the fact that WP 8 doesn't allow half as much stuff has kept me from moving.
      I blame Apple for starting this ever more restrictive trend. Rant over!!

      By the way, I have a couple of questions.
      1. Is there any way of getting rid of the Nat Geo & Movie Teasers app?
      2. You mentioned that adobe reader and quick office are free now. Do you have a reputable link I can download them from?

      Delete
    12. 1. Those apps are on your mass memory. I would backup all my private data like music, pics, videos and documents from E and then format E, and then use the Delight app language changer, because the language changer runs the 5 phases Delight script again, without wiping your C, to get the dependencies on E back again. 2. Go to allaboutsymbian.com for links to adobe reader and Quickoffice

  62. Followed all the steps to flash a Pureview 808 and everything was working fine. Made all the way to the moment I press the Refurbish button. When I do that the process starts, I see a bunch of text flying and then it states something like server database loaded or similar and my laptop reboots. I'm using Windows 8.1 pro 64bits. Anyone had the same issue? AV and FW disabled. Using Phoenix 2012.16.xxx. During the process the phone turns off. I disconect it from USB cable and turn on the 808 and everything is still as it was, so I assume the flashin process never started. I reboot my laptop, try to flash again and same result. I made shure I was running the app in XP SP3 compatibility and also on Windows 7 compatibility mode and didnt helped. Both times ran the app as administrator. Any help is welcome. I was updating because I have an anoying issue with camera where some times the camera just does not load properly with the official 507 firmware version.

  64. when the countdown comes up, unplug the usb before it gets to zero. Then DO NOT just turn phone on, battery must be pulled first, or on N8 - 8 sec power button, then turn on. If you don't pull battery first , then you must reflash again. Same thing if you plug it back in to see if phoenix can finish it

    So I followed all the instructions and everything went smoothly until the end where I received this popup:

    Flashing finalization failed. Do you like to retry the finalizing?
    HRESULT 0x84210029 (-2078212055)
    Firmware: Firmware update finalizing failed. Error 0x841E800B - The storage for data item 'ProductProfile' version '1.1' could not be opened.

    The programming was completed, the phone booted up to Test Mode.
    I tried to remove the cable, battery and power on, it will either show the Nokia Logo and black out(two, three times) or reboot and get the same error message as before " Phone start-up failed. Contact the retailer."

    Any advice? I am not sure if it could be a hardware problem, because it still manages to boot, sometimes.

    Thanks in advance for any help though.
