Flashing or Upgrading your mobile is just like installing OS in your PC. But
the only one difference is, in PC processor was designed to work with many OS'
software's, but mobiles are not like PC. That can only work with it's own
Installing OS on PC can be done by connecting CD/DVD drive or Thumpdrive
with PC. Like that mobile Flashing can be done by connecting Mobile with PC via
For PC you need Setup Package of OS, Like PC mobile need its setup files,
There is a software named Navifirm to obtain these files for
us. you can get it from here: Download Navifirm
PC os's have a small software that can copy all needed files to HardDrive
while installing. mobile OS does not have softwares like PC OS's, So we need
another software to do that thing. In this example we are using JAF . You can
get it from here: Download JAF
You can get flash files on the internet. just google for "FLASH FILE (NOKIA
BB-5)" you'll get what you want.
Use Navifirm (see above for download).
How to use Navifirm:
First of all you need to know your mobile RM number and SW version. see
underneath the battery.
after this open Navifirm then select like this: Your RM number > SW
version > any language/color you want
then download only *.mcusw, *.ppm and Image files.
after that rename *.mcusw file to *.c0r.
Now we have Flash files for selected mobile, and JAF installed on system.
