    • (Make sure to Disable Anti-Virus Application on your Windows based PC to avoid dongle errors)
  • You can download the default firmware either with NaviFirm (download the official firmware after looking-up for your device’s product code by dialing *#0000# from the dialer) or you can look-up for your favorite custom firmware for Nokia 808 PureView.
  • Place the official or custom firmware files in one of the following paths according to your Windows version.
    • For Windows 32bit version: C:\Program Files\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\RM-807\

We have shown two ways of flashing in our video tutorial:
1. USB Flashing in Nokia Suite Mode (your 808 PureView must be powered ON and connected via USB cable in Nokia Suite Mode)
2. Dead USB Flashing – usually used when you have messed up your device flashing the custom firmware (your 808 PureView must be switched-off, you must not connect the USB cable until and unless there appears a dialog box as shown below, once this dialog box pops up, immediately plug in the USB cable and at once push the power button on your device and then HIT OK, flashing process would initiate suddenly)
