    After starting JAF, when I click on ‘Use INI’, I can’t find my phone model i.e. RM-504 (Nokia 5530 XpressMusic). Any suggestions?

    P.S. I did not use Nokia Firmware Editor. I am trying to install Symbian Anna v7.5 on my phone, and got the firmware from some other site.

    • Rajesh Patel says:

      Nokia 5530 XpressMusic is old Phone. So, the above JAF software does not support it. You have to find the JAF software which support your Phone.

    I can not find the “product code” code in Nokia 5230 RM588. When used *#0000# it doesn’t output the product code but everything else!
    Firmware: “V 51.0.002″ & Language Set: 01

    hope it will go :D

  13. bege says:

    After the flashing the local mode screen was frozen. It was not even possible to switch the phone off. Taking out the battery and putting it in again solved the problem. The phone started perfectly.
    Thank you for the tutorial.
