Thank You Guys... Happy Flashing...


  1. will it work for all sw versions for example my nokia 500 s sw version is 111.20.059

    1. No, the custom firmware version must be exactly same as or latest than the firmware on your phone. Downgrading is not possible. Check the CFW versions from the name of downloaded files.

  2. I am on v1. Will flashing v2.1 retain data on phone or will I need to reset everything?

  3. I have an issue with music player. When I add new songs, music player doesn't scan them, any solution?

    1. Forcibly scan from options. Wait for some time.
