Its just impossible to downgrade a phone by factory reset. Otherwise i wouldn't be hitting my head on the wall for my mistake in updating my phone to 7.xx. You need flashing tools like phoenix. And since i can predict that you don't know much about phones so DON'T TRY THIS AT HOME. Ha ha.....

By the way, when i replied to you through my gmail, i didn't know it was you. Thanks bro. Did you check dotsis. Some people have downgraded phones like 5800 and are still working. They used phoenix. Phoenix is better than JAF. Just check the size, JAF is so small but phoenix is huge. So phoenix has more components. I don't know anything about JAF though. Phoenix is nokia certified too. A cell phone is called bricked when the flashing tools can't detect the ROM. Every rom has a developer's code and trying to change or update it leads to this dismay. It is just like a pen drive going dead. And since ROM is not replaceable, as it is fixed in the hardware, so you just can't repair it. This defination wasn't ment for you. Its for those who might be guessing at that name 'brick' in your comment, lol.
Hello people, i m having 7.95 version in my nokia 5130... Can any1 please help me with upgrading my version or this 1 is latest...?? Please reply
MITISHA, 03 Jul 2010what is msg memory of this phone?Can be upto 25-30000 sms depending on free phn memory. Max I reached was 12000 (inbox, sent and saved combined). I wont recommended storing more than 4000 sms if you are using firmware 7.90 or above.
Sbdevilmind, 02 Jul 2010Oh and another thing. Since you mentioned that you flashed your mobile for about 20 times so i... moreYes you can flash with same firmware. You can also flash with firmwares of other regions(languages). YOu cant downgrade your firmware and never ever try to downgrade your firmware. This will lead to a condition known as brick.. and you will have to take it to nokia care to fix it(not sure if all nokia cares can fix a bricked phn). For downgrading you need special electronic devices which are only available with mobile hackers.
PS: BTW max download speed is 296kbps not 260kbps.... Doesn't make any difference coz we wont be getting those speeds anyway.
Robert, 02 Jul 2010I am speaking here for everybody. Not all who consults here are expert-wise on mobile phones. ... moreV.good... keep up the good up.
I been here for past 1 1/4 yrs helping out ppl in distress.... Its been a long time so I don't attend to small stuffs like how to download and install games, themes etc these days. I leave those to ppl like you now.
Sbdevilmind, 04 Jul 2010Where can i find 'phoenix software updater'? I tried searching for it but to no avail. Please ... moreok buddy.. I have sent link to ur mail. Flashing guide book has also been attached. Just follow the steps given in it and its easy.
Is it true that when you update this phone and you wish to go back to the original firmware, that you can use the - restore factory settings function? A nokia care rep told me this.
jared, 05 Jul 2010is it normal 4 the web 2 be so slow??????????????????????? Web isn't slow due to the phone. Its because of the operator. I switched to vodafone and i get a download speed of about 100kbps i.e around 8 to 15 KB per second download. So an mp3 file of about 4 mb takes 5 to 6 minutes to get downloaded. This phone can go upto 260kbps i.e 35KB per second download, if allowed by operator. I have downloaded files of more than 100mb size through my 5130 at night.
