New member, i have questions.
 
Hi all. I found this forum while looking for information about my n810. I love it so much that I bought a 770. I am trying to find the update wizard, but all of the links are dead. I appreciate any help you can give, and I can't wait to see what the 770 can do. Thanks for any help!

That won't work anymore as the Nokia servers are no more.
You can find copy of the firmwares here to flash.

Re: New member, i have questions.
 
Thanks for the reply. I down loaded all of the files for each os edition. My problem now is what to do with them. I am running Windows xp. I have connected the 770, and can explore the memory card. I have no idea what to do next.
I searched the boards, and saw the YouTube video. They all say to use the wizard.
Help?

Re: New member, i have questions.
 
the nokia update wiz should work with the 770.
It is probably the single easiest method (using windows) to flash the firmware for the 770 n800 and n810.
Of course the servers have been defunct.
Regardless it still works for flashing the firmware.
I have used it.... use it still...
Where you will find a copy nowadays?
I think papywizard still has a functioning link ...
though I have not checked it in some months now...
I would suggest if you cannot find it there (and really look please)
then I am sure in my n8x0 walkthrough I mention where it can be found.
I would suggest exhausting those options first.
Failing all that ..
(and I mean really failing ...I am purdy busy at this exact moment...)
...pm me.
But only in the direst circumstance when all hope is lost please...
frivolous pm-ing me (though normally very chatty :D) ...
at the moment will not impress me.....
read the walkthrough I am sure it is there.

ach .... couldn't help it...
had to see...
here this page should help you ..especially in ref. to what to do...
I do know that if you wish the 2008 hacker edition (if mem. serves it wasn't quite finished and polished...vague fuzzy recall.) even the 2007 H.E. needed to be installed differently (I think .l remem. but don't quote me on my mind recalling 10 yr old data..)
The wiz wouldn't do for the H.E. versions I believe...
Standard official firmware can be installed easily with the wiz.though THAT I do remember...
This page should help...

Just finished reading... took me back to the good old days it did....
and I am quasi wrong... the 2007 HE should work with the wiz.
2008 HE is a different matter though. But it was half baked .... not finished... so 2008 HE is just something to putter with in my opinion...not meant for daily on the 770...too much was wonky with that version if I remember...

Re: New member, i have questions.
 
Anyway... 'nuff of all the technicmicals ....

so maverick.... you got yourself a n810 eh?
hehe.... yeah it was the perfect form factor device built ...
in my opinion...
built well.. like a tank... solid... great screen real estate... great keyboard size...backlit... sigh... yup
No one makes anything like it now....
Frankly I would love to cram modern guts in one of mine...
the perfect device for it.
literally...
Best device I ever owned....
second is my n800's
no keyboard... but 2 sd card slots...
allows for a lot of experimentation...
a lot of tinkering.

you know what I mean...
only people who have had an n810 in their hands ...
know what I'm sayin'

i downloaded the flasher from the page itself,

http://www.jedge.com/n810/flasher/

downloaded the files from

http://harrygonzalez.me/mirror/N770/Firmwares/

Re: New member, i have questions.
 
I think you now have enough "thanks" to private message me... if you need more.... get those "thanks" ...
and contact me.
We'll get you sorted out.

Re: New member, i have questions.
 
It's not the number of thanks that opens the gate. It's the number of posts. You need at least 5. Not in the Off-Topic section, those posts literally don't count.
