Strange problem with 6600 (prototype) v 2.50


I got a 6600 (prototype) in my hands, but the phone had some problems (restarting sometimes in some menus). It had v 2.50 inside, so I decided to flash it with 3.42. First I tried with Griffin, but after flash, phone dead... No respone ! I can flash it many times I want but no luck ! Then I flashed it with original Prodigy, but still no luck !

Can this be because it is prototype or is something else ???

Thx

dont think it is a prototype related problem

met all these problems with brand new boxed 6600 too...

1. Fading screen
2. No network
3. on opera browser showing www app closed
4. switchign off after jsut power up or during menus access
5. 4 X fading nokia
6. contact retailer

some of the above mainly 5 and 6 can be solved by full flashing.

try flashing the phone back to the lowest version .. i think 2.41. Sometimes it can help.

Nokia released instructions for services to not reprogram any Prototype phone with regular firmware because the phone will not work any more: memory alocation is different for proto-test phones than production phones.

I think in you'r case will have to proced like you change the flash chip because you can't restore that firmware version any more:
- full erase flash chip ( PM data ) then restore with PM data from normal phone, maybe will work...
