    FINALLY able to change the product code of my Nokia 5530!

    Thanks to Nasua for posting the guide linked above I figured out just the right combination of software/options/Windows OS/drivers to put together and it worked. It only took me 65 hours.

    The key was connecting the phone is PC SUITE MODE.

    Here is what I used:
    -Windows XP [update: or use COMPATIBILITY MODE FOR XP right click option in Win7!!!]
    -Navifirm to get new product code
    -JAF v1.98.62
    -JAF Pkey Emulator v5
    -Nokia Connectivity Cable driver v7.1.29
    -Connect cell phone in "PC Suite Mode" (in cell phone dialogue)
    -Restart PC after JAF installation -- just in case
    ****I DID NOT:****
    --Use Windows 7 [update: or use RUN IN COMPATIBILITY MODE FOR XPsp3 right click option]
    --Use other versions of JAF or Pkey
    --Have Nokia PC Suite, Software Updater, Ovi Suite, Nemesis, FLS, or Phoenix running (check your task manager for these and kill them [Ctrl+Alt+Del]) I actually made sure they weren't even installed.

    Before doing all of this I use SymbianTool v1.75 to make a Full Backup image of my phone for safety.

    After changing the product code I simply installed Nokia Software Updater, connected my phone in PC Suite mode (after rebooting it) and it updated my phone with the latest 30.0.009 Firmware.



    I know there are a thousand guides about this on the Internet so I hope this helps someone who is as confused as I was.

    Update: Regrets -- I did not hack my phone before updating to v30 and this firmware cannot be hacked (yet?). I am unclear whether flashing one of the home brewed CFW's posted here with Rompatcher installed will hack my phone. I guess we'll find out soon enough.

    Also, SymbianTools v1.75 or 1.78 no longer connects to my phone on either XP or Win7. No big deal but my backup is useless if I can't get it working.

    UPDATE: To run in Windows 7

    For "Not supported Windows version" message run Pkey_Emmulator in compatibility mode for Windows XP sp3. (Right click>>Properties>>Compatibility tab.)

    It also never hurts to click Run as Administrator. I also ran Jaf.exe as Admin just in case.
