Nokia Ovi Suite clears Nokia 6700 classic when updating from v09.70 to v10.50 #fail

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/08/23

I had a really bad experience using Nokia Ovi Suite to update my Nokia 6700 classic phone from v09.70 to v10.50.

This is what I did:

  1. Make a backup on my Nokia 6700 classic in NBF format
  2. Copy the NBF backup file to a safe place
  3. Install Nokia Ovi Suite on a fully patched Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on a ThinkPad T61p
  4. Connect my Nokia 6700 classic to Ovi
  5. Start the process of updating the firmware of my Nokia 6700 classic
  6. Ask Ovi to make a backup of my Nokia 6700 classic first
  7. Finish updating the firmware of my Nokia 6700 classic
  8. Allow Ovi to restore the backup it made
  9. Reboot the phone, enter PIN, etc

Now the phone is blank: everything was wiped off, the backup restauration failed. Read the rest of this entry »
