skud, 07 Aug 2010dear nuwan,
hello buddy,just wondering why some units of nokia 5530 doesn't have firmware u... moreDear skud,
Yeah... There is some reason behind this... Actually the availability of firmware updates is depended on the 'service provider' that the phone intended to serve with.. Normally this doesn't have such connection with where your phone is made of.. (For an example my mobile is 'made in Hungary' and I could update it to the newest firmware that is V 31 but your girlfriends 'made in Hungary' phone couldn't do it...)
When releasing an update, Nokia announces for which models it is applied..
Here is the information on the back plate of my mobile.. (Behind the battery cover)
FCC ID: LJPRM-504X
But this will not be matched with your girl friend's 5530's information at the same place.. (Though it's made in same country...)
You better check in internet whether V31 is available for your girl friend's model.. If it's not listed, then I'm sorry.. She'll have to wait some more time..
But I can say this too... As this is a minor update, she wouldn't feel a difference... For me, I couldn't identify any big change (or jump) from V 30 to V 31...
hello buddy,just wondering why some units of nokia 5530 doesn't have firmware updates available,mine i just update to v31 few hours ago but the 5530 of my girlfriend was showing no available updates when i checked it.mine is made in china her from hungary..any clue about this?
have a nice day......
Eccentric, 06 Aug 2010Im using 5530 4m the 1st it out.And nokia may b 8 years. bt i dont understand what u ppl mean... moreDear Eccentric,
Well... Lots of people who're using Nokia smart phones don't know anything about 'hacking'
It's not because it's so complicated.. (Well.. it's not) It's because some people are bit lazy to discover thus they don't find what they should have...
OK.. This could be the 20th time I'm going to describe what 'hacking' is... But this time I'm going to do it very briefly.. (anyone interested, can search in google and find more...)
** Hacking is just a software installation and it doesn't do anything related to hardware... and the software changes are not permanent either..
** It's completely reversible procedure so anyone has nothing to worry...
** It does some changes to certain 'locked' or rather 'restricted' files in Symbian OS which prevent you doing certain things.. (For an example, if you have ever received the error messages 'certificate error', 'constraints by the certificates', 'certificates have been expired' etc... then that is because the default restrictions of Symbian OS...)
** You hack your mobile means you remove those restrictions... (rather it allows you to be capable of removing those restrictions if you want..) For an unhacked phone, you can't remove those restrictions what so ever..
** Most of people who have heard about this 'hacking' are afraid about it because it's not a good name..! So I suggest you not to get afraid by the name itself.. I know it's a weird name.. That's why I want to change that name as 'brightening'
** There are ways of hacking and most popular way is using 'HelloOX2' software.. (You can find it in internet...)
** Some Symbian Smart mobiles can't be hacked.. Some mobiles can be hacked but with certain firmware only... (For an example, Nokia 5530 V 20 can be hacked but V 30 can't be...)
OK... I think that's enough for a beginning... Now let me describe what are the advantages of this so called 'hacking'
** You can install almost any relevant Symbian software without getting any error message
** You can view hidden folders and you can edit the files inside of them
** You can use ROM Patcher patches to achieve wonderful things
(Eg: enabling disabling features like Bluetooth, Wifi etc... enabling disabling 'Settings', 'Phonebook', 'SMS' etc.., Removing the 'beep' when recording calls, Removing camera shutter sound...)
Very briefly... You can do almost anything which you previously thought you can't achieve with Symbian OS due to it's restrictions...
If you're Keen to do it.. and Want to do it... and lucky enough to have a hackable phone with a hackable firmware...
Hope I helped...

Altaf, 05 Aug 2010dear nuwan,
After v30 update iam unable to play videos converted thry total video converter... moreDear Altaf,
Are you sure about what you're saying...? Because I didn't face such a problem after the update... Anyway there is another firmware update now... V 31... You may try that and check whether the problem has been solved... Or you can even re-install the firmware again...
If nothing works, then you may want to go to a Nokia care center for help...
One more thing... Are you sure that your memory card is functioning properly...? You can check it by connecting the phone to your computer as 'Mass Storage' and then trying to play those video files from the computer...
If they're not played in computer then there must be something wrong in your memory chip.. and the problem has nothing to do with firmware update...
5530 owner, 05 Aug 2010Thanks for your reply ,,,,,,,it's your decision my bro but when my devise gets fixed I'm gonna... moreDear 5530 owner,
Yeah... N900 is a great mobile.. But it's not as appealing as 5530... (I only meant the look... and it's my personal opinion..) However performance wise, I think your choice is great... I have heard so many people talks about N900 browsing experience is awesome...
However I've got this suggestion for you... (It's just a suggestion... OK...) Why don't you wait until N8 releases...? (Just like I do...) First of all, it has better features than N900... and most importantly it's very very good looking than bulky N900... It's the first Symbian 3 device on the market.. With fantastic features like USB on the Go (you can connect external hard drives and pen drives directly to the phone...), HDMI, Bluetooth V3, FM transmitter, Wifi B/G/N, 12 MP extraordinary camera it'll be a great device..
And it'll be on market within next 2-3 months... Why don't you use your Nokia 5530 until then and buy wonderful and good looking N8 after that...? (This is just a suggestion anyway...)
what are the advantages if your phone is hacked?
and where can i turn on the proximity sensor?
Well I just found out that my mobile's screen has broken. I would like to know whether it can be fixed or not. Please!! Its kind of urgent
After v30 update iam unable to play videos converted thry total video converter before update it played well but now only audio is coming no video.pls hepl

Nuwan, 05 Aug 2010Dear Mousum,
You are right brother... There is a brand new firmware update... I actually di... moreDear Friends,
I just updated my hacked 5530 to the new firmware V 31.0.005 and so far followings are the differences I have observed... (Only 15 minutes usage)
* 0.5 MB has been reduced from phone memory
* Better memory management (Because I've got about 5 MB more free RAM)
* Most importantly phone remained hacked...!
According to the sources, it's not a major update... It is more about fixing bugs and doing some minor things.. So you should not expect huge performance difference or software changes... But I think bugs related to Typing SMS have gone now... (Hopefully...)
Let you know guys later more details...
Good luck to you all regarding the new update...
And thank you very much brother Mousum for the News...
