No Voda**** bloatware.

the serial number of the phone, if i hacked it and changed the serial number i could update it. but that would void my warrenty

so updating via pc or by my phone didn't work.

Well that's what I did.

I hacked me phone, changed a specific number (not the serial code), and then updated it.

This way when the Ovi Suite tries to update it, it will read the number you have changed which tells it what phone is connected. This way it downloads and installs the firmware for the number you have put on. So essentially you could get N97 firmware on an N96 for example.

I changed the number of my N73 Standard edition to the N73 Music edition so I could get the extramusic capabilites.

hmmmm, would that work with my 5800. change it to the version that comes with music?

EDIT: scrap that idea, you need a pin code.
