    We've tested it.

    The problem is that there is no third party solution that officially
    supports the 6680 yet, and the phone itself is a complete pain to resurrect
    if anything goes wrong.

    I'd be inclined to give it a few weeks and see if Twister, JAF or similar
    bring an update out that supports the 6680 (officially rather than beta).

    But if I took it to an authorised nokia dealer and talked them into
    doing it, there should be any problems though right?

    There shouldn't be, but you do face a couple of hurdles.

    1. Most service centres will refuse to do it outright as it would breach
    their contract with Nokia.
    2. If you find one willing to do it, they may not be able to do it as Nokia
    are introducing software and hardware that automatically chooses the correct
    MCU, PPM and CNT packs for the handset without any user intervention.

    I mean that the equipment they use (that's provided by Nokia) will not allow
    them to flash uncustomised firmware onto the phone.

    Thanks - However what if I had bought the 400 6680 independant of a
    network, and for some reason needed it flashed? Wouldn't that be a
    legit reason for uncustomised firmware?

    If you'd bought a standard phone, they would install standard firmware. The
    flashing equipment used can read from the phone which firmware should be
    installed and choose the correct files accordingly.

    I thought as much.

    Don't get too disheartened though. Many of the box manufacturers are
    currently testing 6680 flashing, so it shouldn't be too long until we (and
    others) will be able to decustomise it for you.

    Well........ We can do it now, but the software isn't ready for release yet
    (I think you know the reasons why Brian ;-)). Until flashing them is a bit
    more stable, it's not something we'd particularly want to take on.

    Pretty much.

    That's not what worries me. It's the direction that JAF seems to be
    travelling in that could end up causing problems for people.

    sounds promising definitley. Does that mean that Nokia won't release
    the official firmware of what? feel free to email me if you would
    prefer.
