Here’s a trick to download official Nokia firmware without Navifirm+ 🙂

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.

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 🙂

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.

I have yet to see any significant changes. But I can confirm that the much awaited front camera function STILL isn’t there yet!!  WTF, NOKIA!!!!
