Where does Nokia Software Updater keep the downloaded firmware image?

I am using Nokia Software Updater 3.0.605 on Win XP. 

 

Just like to know where does it store the downloaded image? I have looked into the installation path, as well as the "Application Data" but can't seem to find it.

Try the following path in Windows explorer;

 

C:\Users\Ray\AppData\Local\Nokia\NSU3\NOSSU2\variants\Products\rm-596

 

Obviously, replace "Ray" with your name and "rm-596" with the rm of your particular phone (rm-596 is for the N8).

 

Ray.

even if you find the update files, you can't do anything with them.

It's taking up disk space after flash, just wanted to get rid of it.

 

The location on my PC is:

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Nokia\NSU3\NOSSU2\variants\Products\rm-696

 

Thanks ray for the info.

Re: Where does Nokia Software Updater keep the downloaded firmware image?

For windows 7 (64bit version but it doesn't matter) the path is:

 

C:\ProgramData\Nokia\NokiaSuite\NOSSU2\variants\Products\

 

eg. for my n95 the path is:

 

C:\ProgramData\Nokia\NokiaSuite\NOSSU2\variants\Products\RM-159

 

p.s. ProgramData is a hidden directory by default; you should activate the "show hidden files" option on folder options before. Nokia suite downloads the firmware in some specific parts instead of a single image so you will find 5-6 different files in your model "RM-xxx"  directory; professional skills and service software are needed to use theese files do not attempt to do something if you dont really know & understand what are you doing and the risks of it.
