but being a beginer i dnt knw ny thng about flashing or updating.can u plz send m... moreThere are 3 different ways for upgrading your phone.
1) FOTA (Firmware Over The Air)
2) NSU (Nokia Software Updater) and
Updating through FOTA is probably the safest. However it has it's downsides. It's not a proper upgrade as it only replaces few files. Using NSU our flashing will make your phone feel like brand new.
Updating through NSU is considered by many as the best way for updating their phone. The entire process may take upto 15-30 minutes depending upon your network speed. The process is also a bit risky as an interruption in the update process like a power failure or a network failure will result in a dead phone. A dead phone can only be repaired by flashing.
Flashing is by far the best and safest (if you know what you are doing) method of upgrading. It takes just about 2 minutes to flash a phone. Learning to flash a phone however is a bit tedious process for most users. Like the previous poster said, it requires you to go through a lot of reading work. Anyways I have posted the important steps for flashing a device with custom firmware 6-7 pages back. In that post you will find a link in which a detailed guide for flashing is given. You will also find links for all the softwares required for flashing there. Search google for more flashing guides, go through them and select one which you understand best.
Coming to custom firmwares.
Custom or cooked firmwares are much better than original ones. Their advantages over original have already been mentioned in previous pages. Or you can go through various mobile forums.
Some of the custom firmwares available for this device are
Revenge^6, AOV mega mode 27, Xtension^10, Electron^3, AOV elite V28 and Thunderblade^2. Last two are based on latest firmware. I'll recommend Revenge^6.

Hey guys, since you may already know that Opera mini 5.1 beta for symbian has been recently released, so my question is 'Were you able to connect to their server?'. In my phone, it doesn't even complete its initial installation in which we have to agree to the terms and conditions. In short, the opera server isn't responding. So, do tell me if any of you have found a solution to that.
