I was InStalLiNG ThiSs ONE : CFW Symbian^Nimble-PRO_CANDY XtrEmE RM-697 V22.0.007
Now Need Your Help GuyeSs : My PhoNe iS JuSt Bricked
The problem is that you updated your phone's firmware earlier to v188.8.131.52
The CFW you tried to flash with is based on v22.0.007.
That why your phone bricked.
Now there are two options to make your phone alive.
1st One (100% Working) : You can revert back to your Original firmware, for that follow these steps
1. Download Navifirm from here
2.Open it and Find the Original ofw (v184.108.40.206) by selecting your device its RM etc...
Then download all the files in it and Copy these files to "Program Files\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\RM-697\"
(Make sure only these files are there in the folder 'RM-697'
3. Open phoenix ->
Press 'File' ->
Choose 'open product' from file menu ->
Choose RM-697 ->
In connection select 'NO CONNECTION' ->
Open 'Flashing' Menu and choose Firmware Update ->
Choose product code from browse button ->select it ->press 'ok' ->
Check 'Dead USB' -> press 'REFURBISH' button and follow instructions given at the time of flashing.--> click 'ok'
4. Now connect your Switched OFF CELLPHONE to computer
5. Wait until a pop-up message appears saying that flashing is complete. Done.
6. Wait for your phone to boot
2nd one (Maybe Work) : you can downgrade to v22.0.007 by flashing with "Symbian^Nimble-PRO_CANDY XtrEmE RM-697 V22.0.007".
If you are considering this step, follow the guide in the CFW page.
But just one change in that guide is necessary, which is :
Just after this step :
go to 'options' button -> then Delete following files - a. C5-03_SW_MC013_45_2G_6.0.fpsx
b. RM-697_22.0.007_C01_prd.rofs3.fpsx --> then click the .C00 file, click edit, choose the .C00 file in 'XtrEmeFF' folder
--> then click the .rofs2.V21 file, click edit, choose the .rofs2.V21 file in 'Xtreme
--> then click the .uda file, click edit, choose the RM697_719_014_U002.uda.fpsx in
the 'Xtreme' folder"
Before clicking 'ok' you'll see a "Allow Downgrade" checkbox select it and then press ok.
Then continue with guide in the CFW page.
