Can't update my N73 with N.S.U.

Hello,
I can't update my N73 with the N.S.U.
I get the message No software updates available for your
phone, but that can't be right. I have firmware
V2.0628.0.0.1
10-07-2006
RM-133
Nokia N73 (57.02)

My phone is a N73 RM-133

Why is this happening ??
Anyone ?

cor

Yep, I get exactly the same message as you - and have exactly the same firmware version as you.

I assumed that I was on the most current version (so nothing to update) - but perhaps this isn't the case?

This is probably down to localisation issues.

I know of at least one person who sucessfully upgraded a UK Orange spec N73.

I am going to try my "vanilla" handset later today.

I live in the Netherlands and it's just a dutch phone with
no branding or whatever.
Several people can upgrade their phone here but I can't !
It's very frustating.

I updated my uk O2 N73 by changing the product code using Nemesis Service Suite.

I changed it to 0529785, I think you can use phoenix to do this as well. This allows the updater to think it is a generic firmware and NSU worked straight away

Now the phone shows:

V 3.0638.0.0.1

RM-33
Nokia N73 (08)

Has anyone on ORANGE done this? I have changed my product code and it says an update is available but I don't dare press Start

I don't see why it would be a problem if you make sure to back up to memory first but maybe you might lose some orange apps?

Oh no, dear god NO, not the Orange applications! *sarcasm is great, isn't it*
Nah good point though, thanks. I just thought Orange being annoying might have done one of their classics, i.e. changing hardware to prevent "unbranded" IPL from booting on the phone. Okay, I'm going a bit into crazyness here.
Any other opinions?
Thanks Mark.

So, if I try the changing product code trick to update my O2 N73 firmware, will I lose my O2 mms and gprs settings - or do these get backed-up by the backup to memory card utility?

The backup should take care of them settings. My phone is working fine after.

The only caveat to this is... you're technically invalidating your warranty by changing the product code, SO...

To prevent Orange or O2 or whoever getting narky, change the product code back to the original one once you've done the update

(yes, ok, you'll have to change it again to do future updates, but better to be safe than sorry)

OK, so using the method above, I managed to update my firmware.

PROBLEMS & WARNINGS:-

1. It's a 58MB download. Not a good idea on dialup or an unstable computer. After download, the install takes about 10 minutes.

2. Everything resets. Obvious, I know. Some people may not realise though.

3. When restoring from my memorycard backup, alot of stuff didn't make it for some reason. Mostly games, so no great problem.

4. I totally lost SmartMovie and my Anti Virus.

5. On backing up my phone memory to the memory card, My phone crashed and corrupted the card. Had to reformat the card to get the phone to recognise it. Backing up since has caused no problems.

6. I'll update this as I discover anything else.

That's because backup and restore didn't work properly in the previous firmware.
