Nuwan, 05 Aug 2010Dear Mousum,

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...
Mousum, 05 Aug 2010A new firmware of 5530xm has been released...Got a message from nokia and checked the software... moreDear Mousum,
You are right brother... There is a brand new firmware update... I actually didn't believe it when I saw your post... Because it's bit strange and the Version No has only slightly been changed... (From V 30.0.009 to V 31.0.005) But it is true...
Yeah... as per my fast experiences the phone will remained hacked if you do the firmware update without hard reseting the mobile.. Anyway, I'm going to try it now... and my phone is hacked... Will update you about the results within 15 minutes...
The phone is prefect but i need to ask when i press on OVI store the screen dosnt change why???????
Does anyone knows where to download free sms threading? Thanks in advance! Been looking online but can't see one that is really ok. Don't want to hack my phone.
i bought nokia 5530 about 1 month ago.it is really a superb mobile in every way.
A new firmware of 5530xm has been released...Got a message from nokia and checked the software update and there was a surprise...A brand new firmware...Version no 31.0.005 But confused about the update weather should i update or not!Coz mine is hacked phone...And really dont want to loose it...Is it gonna be still hacked after the update???
5530 owner, 04 Aug 2010My bro Nuwan this is a major problem sooner or later you'll face it ,I searched and found that... moreDear 5530 owner,
You really want me to sell the mobile that I'm using for 9 months without any problem...? Are you serious...?
OK... Thank you very much for your advice brother... You may sell yours if you're not satisfactory with your unit.. But I'm very satisfactory about my unit and I don't have any hope of selling it whatsoever..
By the way, do you really think it's a good idea to sell something to someone else just because you think it's defective item...? It's totally unethical...! Actually I can't do that.. If my unit is defective, I would rather keep it..
And for the record, there may be so many things out there... So many rumors.. so many stories.. May be just stories... may be stories with facts... I had this habit since I was a child... Not to believe anything because it's said so... I want to go deeper and deeper and realize whether it's true or not... Then only I could believe that...
Accordingly... if someone is telling me "My unit is giving me troubles... So many people complain too.. so Please get rid of your unit too..." I don't really think I will throw my unit away just because of that... Specially when My mobile is working Just fine the way I want... Why the hell I want to get rid of it...???
the nokia 5530 does have a GPS. i use it everyday because i have this phone myself
Nuwan, 04 Aug 2010Dear 5530 owner, I also have read some news about this 'switch off' or 'restarting' problem... moreMy bro Nuwan this is a major problem sooner or later you'll face it ,I searched and found that after 1 month only people face that problem and others after 5 or 9 months so its all about the time my advise to u is to sell yours , mine is sent to be fixed at Nokia Care Center and they already knew that problem as many 5530 owners face that problem..... I'm gonna sell mine later when it'll be fixed........
just for clarification; i bought a Nokia 5530 last May at Nokia stall after one month my long time sim cant received any international call or text so i changed my sim (coz i thought its my sim wt problem)but now my new sim hav the same problem. what's the problem? its Nokia 5530 can destroy the sim? and also, before with my old cp if i received a international txt the time of the sender will appeared in my cp but now its our time, how can i change it?i posted this problem to know if theres someone hav encountered the same problem..but i will go to Nokia service center also to verify
Jett, 04 Aug 2010Hi brother Nuwan, cyber-shot underdog and everyone,
Thanks to you all for your advises, tho... moreDear brother Jett,
After a while... Right...?
OK.. the answers for your hesitations..
Although Vivaz is a SE mobile, as it has Symbian S60 V5 (Just like Nokia 5530) we can install plenty of 3rd party Symbian applications in that unit too..
But as far as I know, Vivaz can't be hacked by using 'HelloOX2' so the software which compulsorily require a hacked mobile, will not be installed in Vivaz... But that is not a big deal as we've got plenty of other software which can be signed and then installed in unhacked phones...
And SE Vivaz has following features over Nokia 5530...
* More Ram (256 MB)
* Faster Processor (728 MHz if I'm not mistaken)
* a Dedicated 3D accelerator
* 3G and GPS
* More Battery (But less thickness)
* Very good camera with HD video recording
But still following cons will also be there.
* Music Quality is definitely far behind 5530
(Most ridiculous thing is, there is no equalizer in Music Player... Instead it's an outside application..!)
* Look of the phone is not that appealing as 5530 (sorry... that's my opinion)
* Fully Plastic made (It's not Nokia... So be careful not to drop the phone..)
OK... for your second question...
'Over the Air' means without plugging the phone to the computer... You can update the firmware using the phone's internet connection... (Let's say through Wifi or Edge...)
You can give your mobile to the care center and let them do the update but I don't know whether they'll do it in the way you want it... May be they will hard reset it and do the update.. In that case you'll loose 'hacking' (I don't think Nokia people like you to have a 'hacked' phone anyway...!)
So.. You better do it by yourself... If you don't mind an unhacked phone, then go to the care center and let them do it...
For your last question,
If you phone is hacked, and if you do 'over the air' update without doing any hard reset, then the phone will remain hacked and you don't have to install anything before... Because there will not be any restriction even after the update as your phone will still be hacked... You don't have to take any precaution but to keep 'hacking'
5530 owner, 03 Aug 2010I don't recommend this phone to all of u cus I had this phone 7 months ago and now I have this... moreDear 5530 owner,
I also have read some news about this 'switch off' or 'restarting' problem upon receiving phone calls... But let me tell you my personal experience about this mobile...
My 5530 mobile's life timer is about 300 hours... (That's quite a good life timer for just 9 months old mobile..) (Yeah.. I talk with my girl long hours..)
But I'm telling you guys very honestly...
I have never experienced such a 'restarting' or 'switching off' problem upon phone call for all those 300 hours...! So I really don't know why some people have complains as so...!
Well.. It doesn't say my mobile has never given me troubles... But compared to the troubles I have given to my mobile so far, the troubles it has given me are very very negligible...! (For an example... I'm not using my 5530 carefully... I have dropped it several times.. Once it was hit on a concrete from above 5 ft height.. But still it's functioning without any problem... I've installed hundreds of applications in it... I have hacked it... But after all, it has served me perfectly and I rarely had any complain about my unit so far...)
Followings are the pros and cons in this phone as I've observed...
* Excellent Music Quality
* Excellent Colors and screen resolution
* Great Build Quality with stainless steel frame (except the back cover..)
* Nice and smooth touch response
* Battery power is not that good
* Poor sunlight legibility
* Callers voice from the phone's speaker is not loud
* No 3G
There can be so many pros and cons... But I listed the major facts I have observed for the people who're willing to buy the unit..
Overall... I LOVE THIS MOBILE... and fully satisfied with it..
skud, 02 Aug 2010dear nuwan,
have you tried android os? Dear skud,
Honestly speaking I've not touched an Android phone so far.. Android is not popular in Sri Lanka so I couldn't really find one among my friends.. One of my friend has got Xperia X10 but he doesn't like it... But he didn't have any complain about the OS... He didn't like the huge size of the mobile..
We should go deep in to Android in order to compare it with Symbian OS..
But I can say this..
Still, among the Smart phone OSs, Symbian is the most popular one and there is no doubt about it... Also, it's the most supported OS as well.. There are so many developers and software companies which supports Symbian so we've got plenty of 3rd party applications out there...
For Android, it'll take some time to achieve that task even though it's a good OS... But personally I suppose the trend for Android, Apple and Bada OS will be altered back to Symbian with the upcoming N8 bundled with wonderful Symbian 3...
We'll see about that..
I continue with Nokia 5530xm 1 year but no prob. i m satisfied with my cell and I don't use any type of unnecessary software even I feel curiosity. Caz ur commend is his wish if ur wrong its going to be die without any asking, So u know very well what kind of behave do with it........ :-)
Hi brother Nuwan, cyber-shot underdog and everyone,
Thanks to you all for your advises, those sure are a big help to us, and me.
My gf is currently at the mall to get her Vivaz...
Let me ask you brahs! Vivaz, considering an SE phone, also can be installed with tons of 3rd party software right?
and another brother Nuwan, after hacking the 5530 you must update it (by saying) "over the
What if updated via care center? it will not remain hacked is that it?
now what other important apps you must first install before the update?what are other imp.apps that you cannot install anymore?
