In early days, it was quite easy to download Nokia firmware images using NaviFirm until Nokia officially decided to close firmware respiratory to protect its Microsoft based interests. However we can still use some tweaked methods to download Nokia Firmware Images with Nokia Data Package Manager (fixed by pyler) & NaviFirm Plus v1.7 that has full cache (around 230MB) backed up by huellif.
First we shall see NaviFirm Plus v1.7 with full cache
, its around 30MB zipped archive, you will have to extract it and it will give you all cache of firmware and you will be able to browser the download links in NaviFirm. Make sure not to clear the cache as it will remove the cache files from NaviFirm. Marco has also developed the new version of NaviFirm Plus 2.2
that is a donation ware, that means you have to donate 3 euros before using it, and certainly no one wants to pay just for downloading official firmware files. So you guys can enjoy downloading Nokia firmware images
with NaviFirm Plus v1.7 with full cache
or with Nokia Data Package Manager.
