Nokia 5230 is the best phone i had.Its a low cost smartphone with a lot of features.
The strong points of nokia 5230 are
3.free navigation via ovi maps
4.30fps video recording and playback
5.New swype input which revolutionised touchscreen inputs.
6.And last but not least for under $200 its a great phone.
Ratha, 03 Sep 2010Hey guys I have a question with my nokia 5230 . When i capture a video from nokia 5230 camera ... moreHi ratha,
The reason that an icon showing no audio may be due to the settings.While taking video select options->settings and check whether audio recording is of or not.
version 21 firmware has bugs,its now uneasy to open the application folder, and the browser sucks, the camera got worst...version 12 is better!
is there any solutions for office application ,,,dont ask to buy ,,
I bought my 5230 about two weeks ago. I was only looking for an unexpensive phone with no other expectations and I bought it without really knowing the specs. That's why I was really amazed when I got a phone with a lot of possibilities, free navigation, other amazing software like e.g. Sports-Tracker, 3 back-covers and a car cradle for about 100 euros. With the newest firmware (21.0.004) I've had no problems whatsoever. I have both Smartmail and Ovi mail installed and they work fine. I didn't think that would be possible, but I still tried it...
Hellow Friendz.Last Months M Purchased N5230.I Don't have Any Problem With This H/s(Expect Sound Quality)..i Want to Know TO Check Firmware Verson..Guys Plz Tell me..
I've had the phone for a few months now. Overall it's okay. Everything is quite satisfactory except that it is a bit slow when selecting apps and jumping out of screen, and the phone a bit too chunky. Also the phone restarts itself for no reason... I think these are the only bad points.
i downloaded ver 12 firmware how am i gonna flash it to 5230, im currently using v21
noypi, 03 Sep 2010It's really more easier than you think.

I myself am using a modded variant of the v21 on my 5233 with all the similar goodies. It's got the CPU mod with 8HS. Was wondering if there is a way to incorporate python runtime and the latst java runtime in the fw itself. Currently i'm very much satisfied with the phone's performance and speed but it kind of lacks that SidewindeR signature that's why I thought of givin it a try.
And with my new cfw I was able to do multitasking with 27 apps both builtin and 3rd party with just 3MB RAM to spare. With the official fw was never able to do so.

SidewindeR, 03 Sep 2010Bro... how do you cook up fw... Do U use nokia fw editor for this? Does it really require a bi... moreIt's really more easier than you think.
You need navifirm and jaf to download the necessary original firmware files based on the variant of the model (i.e. 5230) you intend to cook firmware for, and and flash with the cooked files afterwards
I use Nokia Editor beta7. this is needed to extract the individual files from rofs2 and rofs3 fw files. rofs3 contain the theme files and some more and rofs2 contain the rest. max size of rofs2 is about 32MB and rofs3 13mb.
the reason I mentioned the sizes is you can't go over the limit it will brick your phone but a reflash with the correct files or orig fw files will bring your phone back to life again. :)
anyway, you can include many applications in the files. I put them in rofs3 most of the time. I have bestscreenshot, rompatcher. killme, x-plore, etc.
Mods can be downloaded from some websites (I can email you) and ready for incorporating in your fw but caution should be observed since not all mods are friendly.
There is one particular mod that overclocks the CPU and is originally intended for 5800, but I don't use on 5230. Reason is 5230 is a lot faster than 5800, (walkman would argue this of course, But good thing nobody listens to nincompoops like him) especially with the release of v.21 fw.
The video folder mod is also erratic at times, so i don't use it.
most of the other mods like removing the reserved 5MB space for FOTA, 999 messages by default, theme effects, Cache mods, etc are all fine with 5230.
I use 9 homescreens also including the omnia satio. too bad there's no way for the C6 fw to be ported to 5230 yet. Only for 5800 and 5530 for now, but I'm sure there will be ports for 5230 and 5233 later.
