How to flash Nokia phone with Phoenix Service Software


Phoenix Service Software 2012
I remember once, screwed up my Nokia N82 while trying to hack/jailbreak it. The smarthphone cannot install any sis/sisx Symbian applications anymore. Even after revert attempts, it is still remained the same. In the end, I performed the last resort, flashing the phone. Only then I have my phone working as normal.

I think this is very useful if a Nokia phone goes terribly wrong, so I am going to show you how to flash it. But before we move on, please be extreme caution on phone flashing as it could bricked the phone if anything goes wrong. Always consider phone flashing as a last resort.

Notes

  • This procedure is compatible with all BB5 Nokia phones.
  • Always use the appropriate firmware for phone flashing.
