Nokia E71 Firmware 110.07.127 and URDU language Problem December 3, 2008Posted by asimag in E71, Nokia Symbian, Pakistan, Urdu.
If you live in Pakistan and have recently updated your E71 with new firmware 110.07.127 using Nokia Software Updater then you have fallen a victim of changed Keyboard mapping.
For example (.) period symbol now does not print period(.) it produces (?)question mark, strange!! You will also note that URDU, ARABIC and FARSI language are now replaced with ITALIC, FRENCH etc.
I have looked every where but you can only restore your keyboard language by visiting Nokia Care Center. My advice is not to update to this new firmware.
Closest solution I have found to remap my keys to correct ones is to use product code 0566976 instead of 0559577. This code will also restore to phone default language URDU, FARSI and ARABIC, but some keys are still different but you will know where they are.
To change product code you can use NEMESIS or google NOKIA debranding guide.
You can also use Phoenix to change code and upload firmware in one single shot.
