JAF Guide Step by stepPart-1
This is main window
If you see that message in the Status and Results area(4), that means that JAF software is prepared to any operation.
In this first step we are going to begin with the number 1, as usual.1. Flash Settings
Let's explain more or less what is each thing in this square and then we will continue with detailed info
In this square we can see four main areas
[color:7ec9=red1.1 Flash files
-In this area we can see the files that can be inside of a Nokia DCT4 phoneMCU
is the main part of the software, let say that it's like the operating systemPPM
, the PPM file has mainly the language packCNT
, This file appeared long time ago in the new Nokia phones and has the media files, different from language areas and branded or unbranded versions.ADSP
, this file is located only in the Ngage phones mainly and must use the POP-Port or MiniUsb cable to flash this sectionAPE Variant
, the following file is only used when flashing APE phones like 7710, 9500, 9300...APE User Disk
,the following file is only used when flashing APE phones like 7710, 9500, 9300...
-Below this you can find a new option, Change Product Code
Each Nokia phone has a Product code which varies in language contained and brnded or unbranded version. The product code comes from Factory and can be found in the stick behind the battery.
We use this function to rewrite the product code after flashing. Then the phone will be recognised as we want by Nokia Centers.
-Below this option we have a new option(locked at this moment). If you press INF
button, with a phone connected of course, we will have unlocked this feature. This feature looks theINI file
of the phone you have connected.
What is anINI file?
The INI file it's a notebook file with extension *.ini that it's inside any Nokia package installed. This file is based in the different product codes that our phone has.
The INI file will show us in the blocked area the country/Region name and if it's a branded version. When we will select a package of the list the software will look at the ini file selecting the necessary files to flash the phone.
- The last part of the Flash files guide has four options and will be done automatically when flashing
1)Factory set: With this option marked the phone will be as it has left the factory at the end of the flashing process.
2)Warranty: this will help us to correct any possible mistake in product warranty
3)Unlock:After flash the software will unlock the phone
4)Manual flash: Using this function you can select manually the files that are going to be flashed.
Also can be used when the software can't search the phone or the ini file. You must press Manual Flash and then Use INI
. Then a list with all the Nokia phones will appear, select your and continue as a normal flashing.1.2 Skip options
We have here four options that will be skipped in the flash operation
- AFP:This means After Flash Process. The process after flashing the main files won't be done(Factory settings or whatever). It's usefull if you have connection problem because the usual errors can be found in the AFP.
- MCUID: This allows you to flash a phone without looking at different MCUIDs, it's dangerous if you don't know what are you going to do...
- BT: Skip flashing bluetooth Area, it will skip this area because sometimes bluetooth adress can be damaged when flashing.
- AUTH: Will be explained later1.3 Security&Connection Options.
Use INI it's used to load INI without press INF button before
.Run INI I think it's used to use a ini that it's not in the usual path of the ini files(other harddrive...)
.Load NFP it's used for non GSM phones and means MCU for this phones.
.Easy Cable is a way to connect some phones-1110,6030,6060-
.RPL 208 it's a part of the PM file that contains security info. This should be always backup by JAF software in order to avoid IMEI problems.
.FTD ON: It will allow us to use the FTDI chip for a ultra fast flashing
