Hello everyone!

There are some handy tools to flash stock firmware on Nokia devices. In this guide, we'll explain how to install stock firmware without the need of any flashing tools.

Here's the download links for Android 10 Firmware (build v2_410_SP02) & boot image.

Download:
Android 10 - Nov 2020 - 00WW_2_410_SP02
Boot img

NOTE:

This is an OTA package which contains payload.bin file. You can sideload the package through stock recovery by following method


or

You can extract the payload.bin file using payload dumper and flash using Nokia Tool or pack the extracted contents as a zip file, then flash using Nokia Flash Tool (NFT)

How to install?

[This method is useful if you are from any other ROM / have erased all the data from your device using TWRP; Now want to flash the stock rom, but not ready to flash using above mentioned tools as they take more time for payload.bin extraction, repacking etc.,]


Let's get started!

- Keep the boot img on your PC

- Connect the device to PC with USB cable

fastboot flash boot boot.img

- Select "Apply update from SD card"
- Navigate to the downloaded OTA zip from external SD card and select it
- After installation compete, you can reboot the device into stock Android 10.
That's all!

hello! thank you for the tutorial

this seems like the only method to downgrade to be able to unlock the bootloader.. unfortunately the boot.img link is dead, do you have it somewhere? would you mind reuploading?
