    Default Cooked Firmwares

    Would it be possible to set up a server that has any firmware file i want, and set up the server profile on a nokia 5800 and update it OTA that way...if its not possible could someone explain how the OTA flashing works? it the phone doing the flashing, or is the server??

    idk i just thought it would be a milestone if we could update OTA using cooked fws.

    thanks =]

    In simple words:

    Mobile: Hello Server!
    Server: Hi! Whats your Product Code?
    Mobile: 123456
    Server: Okay, got an update for you.
    Mobile: - downloading -
    Mobile: Thanks, I'm finished. Good bye!
    Server: Bye
    - terminating connection -
    - installing the downloaded package -

    To answer your first question.

    Hypothetically, this would be possible. But I believe the phone is programmed to download from specific server(s). So, you'd have to alter that configuration file (or wherever it would be stored) to download from yours instead. This is completely speculation, I'm not sure whether that's one hundred percent true.

    Well im sure that if not now with a regular firmware, then later on cooked firmwares will be able to be updated by the creator..

    like ordering pizza haha..


    Well i would gladly help if anyone wanted to look into this.

    It's not programmed, but I think that encryption and certificates are involved.

    @jakeo 1992....
    Thats a good piont u got there......
    But i would like to add..... Instead of havin a server and downloading an update from there..... Just make an update file download it on your pc and install it on your phone just like you install a software or application.....
    Come on modders.... This will be a new mile stone if the update is developed....
    It would be very easy to update or make changes to the rom......
    Think about it......

    does anyone know what part of the phone deals with OTA updating? is it an exe or dll?

    we already have the pystore, which i love, if we could pack firmwares into sis files, then just run the sis to update that would be great. Or write an application to flash your phone, and all you have to do is download the files using navifrim, and copy the files in a certain directory, and run the app, then click flash.

    That would be grand.

    Now this is a good idea!..updating to latest firmare by creating a .sis file and installing it to your phone.
