    Hi y'all,

    A Nokia Lumia 820 was sent to me by Nokia.
    The S/W version is 1232.2107.1241.1000
    The Product variant code is 059P7P2.

    Nokia Software updater does not support this product code, nor does Nokia Care Suite. I cannot download other firmwares now because Nokia Care Suite requires access validation unlike before. And Navifirm does not work anymore. I really wanna update my model to 1314 or to GDDR2 when it releases. But currently there does not seem to be a way to do that (phone update check always says no new updates found)
    Any alternate methods?

    According to the web, you have a RM-825_eu_euro1, is that correct? I also have an unbranded 820 (also RM-825) with the code 059Q9L8, so this version should work for you.
    If you use this version: ftp://218.93.201.36/pub/upload/nokia...2013.1.3.4.rar , you can log in as CareSuite External and download the ROMs. But I'm not completely sure if this is not risky, so better ask someone who's sure :)

    Correctly updating an ex-Trial Lumia820?

    Yup, I did the same in that thread.

    Same issue, same ex-Trial Lumia. Used caresuite to get an alternate firmware and flashed it over. Got me to 1308.

    My phone still hasnt had any OTA updates since, so unsure if it'll need me to do the same trick each time and NCS still views it as an 059P7P2

    Yep exactly! The product code has not changed even after flashing. So I guess each time an update comes we should flash. 1314 can be put if you flash with a 1314 rom. But I will it out until Amber comes along

    There is nothing such as a correct firmware, 820 comes in three variants, RM 824, 825 and 826. I think all the euro region phones are RM-825. Just do a quick search for Lumia 820 product codes (sorry cant embed the link as I am in my workplace currently, kinda shady site that is). Look at the product codes and their description. I put a GB(Great Britain Rom) cause of this post Nokia Lumia 820 firmware update not showing up - Page 2 - The giffgaff community . There are various generic roms available such as EU Developer Rom. But be sure not to put roms of RM 824 and RM 826

    yep, that's the one I have (unlocked, Germany via Amazon). It was also the first to get Portico back in the Navifirm days, so you should be good to go.

    Okay, here goes:

    Open Nokia Care Suite
    Open Product Support Tool for Store 5.0
    Tools > Firmware Download
    Stick "059Q9L8" in the search box and download it

    Wait for download
    Open the download location (C:\ProgramData\Nokia\Packages\Products\rm-825) for me, and change all files from having 059Q9L8 in the name to having 059P7P2 in the name
    Close and reopen Product Support Tool and select Programming then Refurbish.



    It'll then flash it, tada!

    I used the download link earlier in this thread and yes you do need to do the config file fix.

    I have data sense, tap to wake and colour profile, radio and so forth.

    Yeah, that would appear that they've pulled it.

    Curious.

    I'll check later if I kept the files when I get home...

    As of this very second 059Q9L8 shows as 1308 again for me, so yup, files removed. Sadly I didn't keep copies either.
