Happy new year everyone. It's been a long time since I have written anything mainly because of my postgraduate studies. I decided to make a come back here and change/fix a few things as I was not happy with the way things were in the past. Everyone who thought Phorepoc is dead are wrong.
Once upon a time in the Symbian world, there was a guy named Mark Wilcox, a great symbian veteran as well as mobile developer, who made an infamous quote about the slowest quick-fix ever, the Symbian^3 UI. Well this article is not about that, but for my own slowest quick fix ever which I am sure I have beaten Nokia's record. A quick fix to my CFW.
I haven't made any posts here for a really long time and unfortunately this specific frequency of new posts suddenly became a habbit. I promised a long time ago a new CFW version for Phorepoc bringing way too many new features but my heavy schedule never really let me finish it. To be more precise the project was frozen for more than 4 months as I haven't made any changes or progress to it since then.
So you want to test a new custom firmware and enjoy all the features that Nokia won't give you, but you have no idea on how to apply a Custom Firmware in your phone? This is how you'll do it. In this guide we are going to show you how to download an original firmware from Nokia's servers and guide you into flashing your phone with JAF even if it is dead, so this guide is helpfull not only for applying a CFW but also reviving your dead phone in case something bad happened after flashing it the wrong way.
As I have said on my previous post, I will concentrate more on things like modding as well as write guides for symbian devices. And as a gift to everyone still here I decided to share a CFW I have created for the now unsupported and abandoned N97 Classic with all the things that came to other Symbian^1 (S60v5) through firmware updates.
