    Downgrading Nokia 5130 firmware

    Disclaimer: I don't know if this topic is acceptable. Personally i don't see why i shouldn't be able to go back to a previous version of firmware on MY phone, especially since the new one is terrible. If Nokia had any consideration for it's users it would make it a feature, or not release broken firmwares as non-beta versions.

    I'm trying to downgrade my 5130XM from version 7.95 to version 6.94 using NAVIFIRM and JAF. However having found the appropriate firmwares i've seen there are various variants, and i don't know which one is appropriate for my phone. The product code doesn't correspond with any of the available ones, however i KNOW i bought it with a firmware earlier than 7.91. I've bought my phone from Croatian T-Mobile under a subscription contract.

    Here is the list of available firmware variants

    This phone cannot be downgraded with JAF via USB cable. JAF says: "Can't prepare phone for downgrade." and if You continue JAF will kill the phone and You will need to flash dead phone with Phoenix. I don't even know if it can be downgraded with BOX.

    In my opinion 07.XX firmware series has pre-alpha quality and should have never been released. Switching tracks in 07.91 takes more than 10 seconds and in 07.95/07.96 about 10 seconds. It WAS music phone but no longer is! Someone has great idea to keep track of most frequently played tracks and update this information every new track is played. But whole music database is build from scratch at phone start so what's the point in making this very expensive statistics?! I don't see any other explanation: it's intended Nokia action because they wanted to kill this phone to force people to buy new models!

    Go and see how many people complain about this on their official forum and they DO NOTHING!
