    Default *SUCCESS* Language Pack Change with S60v3 E5-00 E72 E71 E63 N86 E75 NAM Phones

    UPDATED (Apr 28, 2011): Both Language pack swap and full firmware swap works fine with E5-00 RM634 flashed with RM632 firmware version 42.14. This phone is much faster and probably the FASTEST Symbian S60v3 phone around!

    UPDATED (Aug 11, 2010): Language pack swapping still works fine with 500.21.9 with E63/E71. But I found full firmware swap flashing is easier and 3G everything is working awesome!

    Full Firmware Swap:
    - Flash all files from desired RM-437 firmware including core and rofs2 rofs3 etc to RM-449 works just as good.
    - This is much simpler procedure as well.
    - All you need to do is put all the downloaded files from Navifirm for desired RM-437 into the destinate RM-449 folder path.
    - Select the firmware and flash with Phoenix.
    - It works also with my Nokia 5800 RM-428 with RM-356 firmware since language swap does not work with V40+. Now my RM-428 Nokia 5800 NAM is running v51.0.006 HK firmware with Chinese language and handwriting.

    UPDATED (Apr 18, 2010): Flashing N86 with language pack swap must be performed with JAF since Phoenix will perform checksum calculation on files prior to flashing so it won't let you swap language pack.

    UPDATED (Apr 12, 2010): I just tested the lauguage pack swap on RM-449 E63-2 with the latest firmware 410.21.10 and 400.21.13 and success! Since the firmware version is same is E66 and E71, I would assume these version will be fine under the other models! Upgrade now to latest version for better improvement and bug fixes!


    UPDATED (Mar 26, 2010): The user roger77478 and tiunilohmu successfully flash their E72-2 RM-529 with with RM-530 Chinese Language using this method. With E72, you need to swap the rofs2 file (rofs2 and rofs3 if you like).

    i.e.
    rm530_021.024_38.01_China_QW2_prd.rofs2.fpsx
    rm530_021.024_C00.01_DEFAULT_prd.rofs3.fpsx

    UPDATED (Dec 27, 2009): The user MarkAurel (pg2) successfully flash his E75 RM-413 NAM with RM-412 EURO3 Language using the method below.

    You MUST download all original firmware files for your phone E75 RM-413 with the desired product code with NAVIFIRM.

    And then you download the desire RM-412 ppm file (i.e. rm412_11048125_prd_prdapps.rofs2.v01) and rename to the target file name (i.e. rm413_11048125_prd_prdapps.rofs2.v3 and put it under the folder Program Files\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\RM-413\.


    UPDATED (Dec 10, 2009): I moved the procedures to top for easy viewing. Many people ask if it works for other S60v3 NAM (North American Model) phone. I would think so if the procedures are followed closely. But do it at your own risk.

    For your record, I now have success on N95 NAM, E63 NAM, E71 NAM, and N86 NAM. Again, some people have great success and some don't and ended up bricking their phones. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK..

    If you are newbie and noob at flashing with Phoenix/JAF, I would read A LOT of articles on here DailyMobile or on web before attempting or get someone with experience to do it (ie. local shop, phone guru, etc).

    NOTE: Make sure version is the same level as close as possible (i.e. v200 on RM-437 then v200 on RM-449).

    NOTE: I swap with APAC China and HK language pack only (Simplified and chinese language pack), so I have no experience with any other languages.

    NOTE: We are ONLY swapping PPM file (language pack) not the core firmware. A lot of people try swapping core firmware with everything and ended up bricking their phones or losing functionality of their original cell phone (ie. 3G, FM Transmitter)

    1) Phone Model: E63-2 RM-449 NAM Ruby Red (0577062)
    2) Original firmware: US v100.21.110
    3) Used Navifirm to obtain new firmware files listed in 4 and 5.
    4) RM-449 E63-2 NAM v200.21.012 (0577062) or your original E63-2 NAM product code
    5) RM-437 E63 APAC-Q Hong Kong v200.21.012 (0578141) or any of your desired language pack
    6) Used the PPM file (i.e. rm437_200.21.012_prd.v25) from (5); renamed to replace rm449_200.21.012_PRD.v211_20 in (4).
    7) Backup Phone Memory to Memory Card.
    Hard Reset your phone to make sure everything is cleaned out by pressing *#7370# and then enter your master code, by default it is 12345.
    8.) Removed both SIM card and memory card. Don't know if it matters.
    9) Used Phoenix version 2009_4_12 or which ever latest release obtained from PhoenixSlayer blog http://phoenixslayer.blogspot.com/
    10) Removing all Nokia software (Use Add/Remove Software to ensure everthing Nokia including Drivers are removed) before installing Phoenix.
    11) I actually did everything from Windows XP SP3 running inside a VMware. VMware is able to use the USB port. And I didn't install any Nokia apps prior.
    12) Store the files that you have downloaded and renamed in following folder: C:\Program Files\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\RM-449
    13) Run Phoenix and Connect to Phone Through USB.
    14) Hit Refurbish and wait for phone to finish flashing. DO NOT INTERRUPT ANY PROCESS during flashing. The phone will restart automatically.
    15) When the message saying flashing is completed successfully, then you can disconnect the USB cable and enjoy!

    Default Re: *SUCCESS* Language Pack Change with S60v3 E63 N95 NAM Phone

    Using this method below originally from wmf from S60v5 forum, I successfully changed the language pack on E63-2 RM-449 NAM and N95-3 RM-160 NAM. Now I have full chinese (Traditional HK + Simplified Support) on every apps and Nokia web browser.

    No More Font Router, ZTA4 and Unicode Font needed! Now my phones support BIG5 encoding and original chinese input methods!

    Here is a quote for the original instruction for Nokia 5800.

    3) Used navifirm to obtain new firware files listed in 4 and 5.
    4) 5800 RM-428 US v21.2.025 (0577454)
    5) 5800 RM-356 HK CV v21.0.101 (0581337)
    6) Used the file RM-356_21.0.101_prd.rofs2.V23 from (5); renamed; to replace RM-428_21.2.025_prd.rofs2.V17 in (4).
    7) Did a 3-button reset on the phone before hand: Green-Red-Camera while powering on.
    8.) I left in the both the SIM card and memory card. Don't know if it matters.
    9) Used Phoenix version 2009_4_12 obtained from PhoenixSlayer blog.
    10) Followed the very helpful Phoenix flashing instructions posted at http://realinfo.info/index.php?topic=1549.0. - As my Phoenix package was different, I did not use their installation instructions. But I did follow the precautions of removing all Nokia software beforehand.
    11) I actually did everything from Windows XP SP3 running inside a VMware virtual machine. VMware is able to use USB from a vm.

    Everything went smoothly. As the language pack I grabbed in (5) is a Hong Kong one, the phone now has language choices of English, Chinese Traditional, and Chinese Simplified. This choice also extends to the phone display menus. No more problems with Chinese web pages, or emails containing Chinese, or even English character only emails with Big5 or GB encoding. Input can also be done in any of the three languages, and handwriting recognition also works for all three.

    I have not tried 3G, but from postings by others, I'd expect it would work.

    Many thanks to jtay025 the originator, and to nxrick for having tried it and confirming it would work with version 21.

    Hi guys,

    I'm wondering if I try to change FW and product code of my Nokia E63-2 RM-449 (NAM version) to use the phone in Europe like it is E63-1 can I brick the device? Some one who managed to do this magic?

    There is hardware differences between the E63-1 and E63-2, and flashing firmware like this is very risky. I would not change the core firmware but only the language pack since it does not affect the operation of the phone.

    Maybe you want to try this magic yourself?

    Default Re: *SUCCESS* Language Pack Change with S60v3 E63 N95 NAM Phone

    How can I change only the language pack without touching the core firmware? I thought they are connected in that matter. In fact I need Bulgarian Language Input. Can I manage to install support for Bulgarian (Cyrillic) or Russian using the original US firmware? Any guide anywhere out there?!? My E63 is Ultramarine Blue.

    Thanks a lot for your input!

    EDIT: How can I determine my original product code? Inside the telephone I read something like that "CODE: 0576884040921s"

    Thanks!

    I've got it!
    Now the problem is that through Navifirm I can see MANY RM-437 firmwares but there isn't ANY clue which one supports Bulgarian or Russian or any Cyrillic Language Input! Any help on that?

    Default Re: *SUCCESS* Language Pack Change with S60v3 E63 N95 NAM Phone

    OK, here's the result of my 2-3 days quest.

    Yes, this guide is working and I've managed to change the phones language packs over 25 times. Why's that? Because this "full list explaining the Nokia Coding (i.e. EURO/MEA/APAC)" doesn't work. There is a number of different variants of these "Nokia Coding" on the net. So I've decided to try every EURO language pack just to see what languages is in its content. Now I can tell you precisely which is what but... In the process once I've managed to brick my phone and successfully revived it all through Phoenix Service Software 2009.20.010.39068. Finally I've decided which language pack I prefer and I started flashing but something's happened! At the end of the procedure on the screen of the phone appeared following:

    RM437EN0874571920.a01

    mode
    mode

    NOKIA

    The phone powers on but stays at this screen only. I've tried to reflash it through Phoenix like a dead one but I get an error message like that:

    The flashing failed. Do you like to retry the flashing?

    HRESULT 0x8401f141 (-2080247487)

    Unable to get error message

    Any help on reviving the phone will be warmly welcomed!

    I've tried all hardresets I've found anywhere with no result. I've tried with and without SIM card in the phone but still cant get a result.

    PS: If anyone needs to know exactly which EURO language pack contains what languages I can post the full list I've made.
