Nokia Suite Data Package Manager

And so my fear of Microsoft, taking over Nokia Mobile’s support site and us tinkerers would soon not be able to download the Lumia firmware for our devices via this trick, has come today.

I wanted to download a firmware for my Lumia 1320, which I gave to my Mum. Alas! No packages were available. So I tried downloading for my Lumia 1520. The result was the same, “Found 0 variant package(s) “. The same thing for my Lumia 1020 and 920.

Our only way to get the firmware of our Lumia is via the Nokia Software Recovery Tool, which is such a bummer because it only downloads the firmware specific for our Lumia’s product code. De-branding our Lumia’s now gets a little harder than usual. 😦

Is this the end of the line for us tinkerers who have the affinity to de-brand our Lumia phones? I hope not…

Here’s a trick to download official Nokia firmware without Navifirm+ πŸ™‚

Things you need:

1. Latest version of Nokia Suite version 2013_13_4_4.exe

(UPDATE 15July2013: It appears some of you are having issues downloading the firmware using the Nokia Suite installer directly linked from Nokia’s server. My Guess is that Nokia may have updated the Nokia Suite rendering the ‘fix’ to no longer work. Kindly download the Nokia Suite Installer I’m using. It’s a 3-part installer from the links below).

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3

Single File: Mega Link (Recommended)

2. usergroupsconfiguration.cfg file

You can download the ‘usergroupsconfiguration.cfg’ file from HERE

Alternate LINK to both files.

Installation:

1. First install Nokia Suite. Do not run after the installation is finished.

Nokia Care Suite Installation

2. After Nokia Suite installs, copy and replace the usergroupsconfiguration.cfg file to C:\Program Files (x86)\Nokia\Nokia Care Suite\Product Support Tool For Store 5.0 if you’re running a 64-bit version of Windows. Or C:\Program Files\Nokia\Nokia Care Suite\Product Support Tool For Store 5.0 if on 32-bit.

Running Nokia Suite and Downloading the firmware:

1. Open Nokia Suite. And select ‘Product Support Tool For Store 5.0’ (Double Click)

Application Launcher

2. When prompted, select ‘CareSuite External’ then hit ‘Sign-in’ button.

Sign in

3. From the Menu, select Tools, then ‘Firmware Download’

Firmware Download

4. Now enter the product code of your device, hit ‘Check Online’ button, to check the latest firmware version of your product code.

Download Firmware

5. Then ‘tick’ ‘Optional Content Files and ‘Download’ to save your firmware.

6. Wait a few minutes for your files to download πŸ™‚

7. You may now manually flash your Nokia device with the firmware you just downloaded.

TIP:

– Your firmware should be stored in the C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products folder of your hard drive.

– If you need to download a different firmware version for the same product code, I suggest you wait for your first download to finish, save all the downloaded files in a marked folder, then proceed with your next download.
