What does updating firmware do
I’ve put instructions together on how to change the Product Code of your E71 and update the firmware to the latest Generic EURO1 version. Install latest version of NSS from B-Freaks (as Virtual device) 2. Unfortunately, your product code did not work for my particular phone (0569371).Connect E71 phone via USB cable (PC Suite connection mode) 3. Another website had a similar approach as yours and their product code did work for my phone.NOTE: These are my views only and its always up to the individual and at their risk to tamper with product codes and firmware 🙂 But its pi55 easy, so on you go 🙂 Hi, Many thanks took the plunge, can access everything, even download games, windows live no go (dont use it anyway).Iplayer works better allows me to download, wouldnt give me that option on the version before, all very smooth. I cant believe I paid for the exact same steps on e Bay. Gerry, I appreciated your cluing me into this way to upgrade my E71. If your phone is still in warranty I advise when the firmware update is complete to run NSS again and change your product code back to the original one.I rebranded after 2 days with my 3UK E71 just to get the 2G only lock and then to update my firmware to the lastest Nokia version 210.
Are you sure you’ve changed the product code sucessfully with NSS, did you read the code again to check its worked?
Managed to keep virtually everything using nokia suite, application menu wasnt working right intially on the home screen and locking me out of the menu options got into eventally, factory reset sorted that. Im having a few problems with my handset, and I think I might have to send it back to 3.
