Re: Reinstalling / updating Nokia E71 firmware

If you have previously updated your software to your current version, you should be able to use NSU to redownload and reinstall.

Alternatively, the following resets may help.

Always remember to backup your phone before performing resets as your data may be lost.

First try these

*#7780# - Restore factory settings - resets all the settings to the default
*#7370# - Reformat your phone

Re: Reinstalling / updating Nokia E71 firmware

There were no previous updates...
This is the original firmware that came with the phone...
There are no updates available at NSU...

Reseting to factory settings did not help...
I tried that from Menu->tools->settings->general->factory settings already...

Would it solve if I reformat my phone as there is no firmware available...?? or would i end up bricking my phone...??

Re: Reinstalling / updating Nokia E71 firmware

The first reset just resets it to factory default while the second reinstalls the firmware from the ROM. It should not brick your phone as it is the exact firmware that your phone left the factory with.

Remember to backup your data. You will probably have to reinstall any software you have that is not embeded into the firmware.

Re: Reinstalling / updating Nokia E71 firmware

By the way, here's a solution i found for people facing problems with Contacts/Conversation...:

1. Remove Nokia Services Support package...
2. Reinstall Nokia Services Support package from:

http://nds1.nokia.com/NOKIA_COM_1/Microsites/BetaLabs/applications/apps/Nokia_Internet_Services_Supp...

3. If the package is corrupted/cannot be removed/uninstalled... reinstalling the package will replace the corrupted package and thus solve the issue...

Re: Reinstalling / updating Nokia E71 firmware

Hello!

Are there other ways of reinstalling the firmware other than restoring? Perhaps getting them online then installing it using my PC? Coz my nokia 7210 supernova's music player is not working anymore and I tried anything from restoring (full restore), to upgrading my firmware then restoring again but none worked.

Re: Reinstalling / updating Nokia E71 firmware

i hv Nokia 5800XM. Firmware appears corrupted and need0o reinstall. I tried the *#7370# hard reset. But the issue isthat while the phone resets, the firmware version in the status remains the latest one. As a result, when i run the NSU, it declares that software is upto date and hence doesnot reinstall or update. I m now left with old firmware bearing new version number which has become worse than before! Any idea what to do? Thanks

Re: Reinstalling / updating Nokia E71 firmware

I've updated my nokia E71 two days back through nokia Ovi Suite. I dont know what happened but now I am not able to save internet settings on my phone as when I tried opening message containing internet settings revieved from the operator, it says message format not supported .

 

I tried  *#7370# and reformat my phone and then again get the same problem even before restoting my phone data and using memory card. 

 

Can you tell me how I can roll back to my previous version.
