Hi all, I've flashed my N80 to N80IE without problems, and have one question:

Will the official Nokia Updater now recognize my phone as N80IE and provide the relevant firmware updates, or will it still be recognized as the standard N80?

I haven't changed the product code on my phone prior to the flash, but maybe the product code was automatically changed during the flashing.

Cheers

I think it changed the code automatically when you chose Euro1 PatinaBronze/Pearl Black. And i don't think you will be able to update it via Nokia Update, you will always have to use Phoenix. That is what I heard anyway.

Not true, NSU will read the new code that is flashed when you update your firmware via phoenix and offer the update based on the new code.

I have updated my N80 via Phoenix 3 times and NSU once and FOTA once with no problems.

I think if you set the code to N80IE before flashing it will still have that code installed, and NSU will believe it's a genuine IE edition.

Alternatively,... older versions of Phoenix contained a dead-phone flash function. I still have the setup files for Phoenix 2004 and could upload them to rapidshare for you tonight. However i am not 100% sure if this version (a) has the Dead Flash Mode and (b) supports the N80. It's up to you if you want to try or not.

Hi,

Many thanks for this info. Could you upload the 2004 phoenix and see if it works?

Hi there,

It didnt have a dead phone flash option nor did it have an RM 92 product option :(

thanks for the help though!

Anyone out there got any other ideas? I took the N80 to the NCC and the chap that deals with Nokias is on long term sick leave. Nobody else could help. My need is great, as this is my business phone!

Did you get your phone via a Network Providor? E.G. O2, Vodafone, etc?
If so, they should allow you to send it back to them for repair/replacement.

If you bought it privately, e.g. eBay, ask the seller if he can send it back to his or her Network Provider.

Finally, Phone the Nokia Careline and ask if you can mail the phone directly to them for repair as your nearest NCC is not currently operational due to the long term staff illness.

I believe there's a very good chance that a hard reset will boot up a dead flash as long as the flash process got to 100% before something went wrong.

The hard reset procedure is relatively simple....

Power off the handset
Hold down GREEN, 3 and *
Power on the handset (keep the three buttons held down)
Wait 30-60 seconds and the handset should boot up normally.

If the hard reset doesn't work first time, power off the handset and try again. It's very easy to accidentally let go of one of the three buttons for a fraction of a second, which aborts the hard reset. There used to be a dead-phone flash process in Phoenix but it was taken out of the product several releases ago.

Unfortunately, if hard reset repeatedly fails, and Phoenix can't connect & attempt to re-flash the handset, it's probably time for a trip to the nearest NCC with an innocent dog-eyes look on your face and a sob story that your handset 'just stopped working...'.
THANKS A BUNCH!!!

Glad your phone is now working. Same thing happened to me after the N80IE flash, but that was my own fault as I did not follow the normal procedure!

A Hard Reset is the last chance to revive a dead N80, before visiting a Nokia Repair shop.
