How to flash the mobile and download recent

Updating Nokia Mobile Phone Firmware Here I'll tell you the things you need to do in order to update the embedded firmware in your Nokia cell phone.
Things to do before a firmware update:

  1. Install Nokia PC Suite, and back up all the stuff from your phone to your computer.
  2. Charge your phone battery to its full level.
  3. Beware that any hindrance (like power off, etc.) during the update process can damage your phone.
Let's get started.
  1. In your Nokia mobile phone, type in *#0000#
    Your Nokia mobile will now display the firmware version it's running
  2. Carefully open the back case of your mobile, and also take away the battery.
  3. Note the product number down
  4. Go here and type the product number. You'll now know if a new version of firmware for your Nokia mobile phone is available
  5. Download the Nokia Software Updater. Click here to download it
  6. Install the Nokia Software Updater (I think it's recommended to run it if you have more than 256 MB of RAM on your computer)
  7. Connect your Nokia mobile phone via the USB port, and also make sure your computer is connected to the internet
  8. Run the Nokia Software Updater by clicking on the icon on your desktop
  9. The Nokia Software Updater connects to the internet, checks for updates, and then detects your phone to start installing firmware updates for your Nokia phone
  10. You might see some fuzzy things going on in your Nokia phone, and that's perfectly normal to happen during a firmware update
  11. When all's done, the updater gives a confirmation message and then the phone restarts
  12. You can now disconnect the phone from the computer
That's how you upgrade your Nokia mobile phone's firmware. Let me know in the comments if you have any question

is it normal that when you r updating the firmware of it,much of time is needed?..the MB is increasing while updating


Hi,
Usually firmware update takes much time depending on the speed of the Internet connection which you have.
First nokia updater have to be downloaded and when you try updating your mobile firmware then the nokia updator downloads the necessary update files from internet which takes again some time. After the firmware download then actual firmware updation happens. This will take some minutes.
Please note that interruption in firmware update may make your mobile unusable. Then you have to make a service call if anything happens like that. so perform firmware update with a high speed Internet connection and have UPS for your system.
I hope this is helpful to you.
Thanks
