    Yes, if you have the right equipment. Twister will do it, as will Griffin
    (not sure about Prodigy), but they;ll all cost you approx 200 UKP or more.

    You'd get access to a support area with any of the boxes above where you'd
    find the files you needed.

    No, this is not a binaries group, plus the firmware is copyrited by Nokia.

    Nope, you can't flash the phone over IR.

    No, but whoever posted them would stand a very good chance of Nokia paying
    them a visit. Also, as I said before, this is NOT a binaries group.

    > I own the phone , so who cares,


    I think Nokia would care quite a bit.

    > its a nokia

    And when they post binaries they get shot down in flames - rightly so. If
    they're daft enough to post binaries, and binaries of software that's well
    respected within the group, God help them.

    Twister originates in China, Griffin is the same neck of the woods, and
    Prodigy I'm not sure about. However, they are all available for sale in the
    States, we regularly send Twister boxes over there. If you don't want to
    use a professional solution, you'll have to find someone to do the work for
    you.
