    Lightbulb Tutorial 3) - How To Flash Nokia Dct-3 Phones

    3) FLASHING is changing the phone's OPERATING SYSTEM, or FIRMWARE.
    This can be done to upgrade to a newer version which got bugs fixed, or to modify the phone's features (add ringtones, change graphics, add features).
    In some cases, flashing can make a "new" phone of an old one (8210 can be 8250, 3310 can be 3315).
    It is called "Flashing" because the phone's operating system is not on a harddisk, but in a chip which is direct programmed, a "flash memory" chip, hence "flashing".


    BEFORE YOU START FLASHING YOUR FONE - BACKUP YOUR FLASH!
    YOU DO THIS BY CONNECTING THE PHONE TO THE FLASHERCABLE AND CLICKING THE LEFT GREEN BUTTON IN ROLIS FLASHER.
    AFTER FLASH IS READ SAVE FLASHFILE WITH .FLS FILE EXTENSION


    supported DCT-3 Phones are:
    3210, 3310,3350,3330, 5110, 5110i, 5130, 5510, 6110, 6130, 6150, 6210, 6250, 7110, 8210, 8250, 8290, 8810, 8850, 8890

    Knowledge about flashing phones with firmware files is very useful in case of repairing phones damaged during wrong unlock, wrong flash upload, firmware update or language change.


    You will need:

    Nokia Flasher set (with MBUS converter) or Universal Box 4.0
    Nokia DCT3 flasher by rolis 4.71 (or higher) software
    Nokia Tool 1.9 software
    MCU and PPM for particular model.

    (all available in download section)



    Please open Nokia DCT3 flasher by rolis 4.71 and select desired model in selection menu - for example Nokia 3310




    Next you have to select 2 files - MCU and PPM which will be uploaded later to the phone.




    You have to press LOAD MCU and select file for upload. MCU file is always larger than PPM file which contains language pack.





    Then click LOAD PPM to select PPM language file. Usually at the end of PPM file's name there is a letter a,b,c,d etc. which is name of language pack.





    Now after all necessary files are selected you can see their names near LOAD MCU and LOAD PPM buttons as shown below.





    Now we have to connect dejan flasher 1.00 cable and insert connector to the phone.
    Next press FLASH in the program and after that you must press POWER ON in the phone for short time to initialize upload.

    Please wait until progress bar goes to the end.





    When program ends flashing we have to disconnect dejan 1.00 cable and connect phone to MBUS cable. In Universal Box 4.0 we just disconnect RJ-45 connector from dejan flasher 1.00 socket and connect it to another socket (MBUS).


    After uploading flash the phone will not log in to the network. It is necessary to calculate flash FAID using special software.

    We have to open Nokia Tool 1.9.

    We turn on the phone (still connected to the MBUS cable) and in program's menu we select Read / Phone info.





    Program will read information about phone. Then we click FAID to calculate FAID.



    After this our phone will be able to log into the network and will not lose coverage.

    Hope this helps

    Thumbs up EXCELLENT !!

    Thank you!!
    This thread should stay on top of the list, as it includes EVERYTHING a newbie needs in regards to "flashing". Could it be placed directly below "rules" in all forums that support DCT-3 phones..? Because many people ask those questions all over again.
    Moderators, i am sure that could be arranged..?

    Thanks a lot....
    your Thanh

    Could we steal this for the faq

    Steal probably isn't a good word, fancy donating this mate?

    Great work, very concise

    Cheers
