How to: Access Hidden Files of Nokia Asha and Delete Useless/Demo Data

nokia-asha-familyNokia Asha phones are quite easy to use and well built, but one problem that almost every Nokia Asha (or any other S40)ย  phone user faces is that Nokia bundles some pictures, videos, music, apps, games with the phone which can’t be deleted or moved to the SD Card.

Some of you will have questions like “What’s wrong with that?” Well the answer is simple. Most of these Asha/S40 phones have a low internal memory and these useless apps may make it quite hard for the user to find enough space to save other stuffs such as Messages and Calendar data which can’t be saved onto the memory card. So although the phone has a pretty satisfying internal memory, some bloatware will never allow you to access that.

How to access the internal/hidden file system of Asha and other S40 phones:

Asha phones can only run Java apps which don’t have enough permission to access and make changes to the internal files of the phone. So the process can only be done on a PC running Windows XP or higher. If you have a Windows PC, follow the steps below:

Make sure that latest Nokia Suite is installed on your phone, but it is not running in the background. We only need the connectivity drivers from Nokia Suite.
  1. Download MobiMB software. Link Here
  2. Double Click to open the downloaded file (MobiMB.exe) and choose the location where you wanna extract the setup files to.
  3. Browse to the folder where you extracted files in the previous step and run setup.exe
  4. Continue with the setup by accepting license agreement. Leave the Product Activation fields blank and continue.
  5. Keep the shortcut at the desktop and finish the setup.
  6. Now connect your phone to your PC and run the MobiMB Mobile Media Browser shortcut from the desktop.
  7. Click on Start MobiMB.
  8. Now click on File> Settings. Next choose Add a new Connection> Cable Connection> Nokia native USB phones> CA-101 cable (Micro-USB). Press OK
    Add connection - MobiMb browser
    Adding a new connection
  9. Wooh!! You’ll be presented with your phone’s file-system. Access and add/remove the files you want. Read below if you don’t know what to delete.
    MobiMB - Browse Phone
    Browse hidden files

Which files can I delete without the risk of malfunctioning of the phone?

MobiMB is a very advanced software and deletion of important files can lead to phone becoming unstable and hence crashing. So which files to delete? Most probably, your aim is to delete the junk files to free up the phone memory. So you should delete these files:

  • MobiMB> Gallery: Delete all that you don’t want in your phone. There’s no risk here. Some items cannot be deleted and the software will say “Error”. Skip such files and move to the next. You can delete pictures, music, videos, themes, wallpapers, tones, graphics and some other stuff located in the gallery.
  • MobiMB> Games and Apps: (Includes /collections and /games) You can delete all the pre-installed games and apps that you don’t need in your phone. For games and apps, you can delete the jar and jad files, but you might be unable to delete the folder for private files of such apps. Just ignore it as it does not contain any data larger than a few KBs.
  • MobiMB> C:> MenuApps:ย This folder includes the games/apps which were pre-installed to your phone’s menu or the main filesystem of the phone. In most cases, you shouldn’t mess with this folder, but in case you need to delete a bundled app, say Nimbuzz or Nokia Xpress browser, you can delete the jar and jad files of such apps.
  • That’s it. Don’t mess with anything else. If you’re an explorer or a power user, you’re always free to play with the rest of the files to see the logic behind them and their usage.

Phones supported by this repack of MobiMB:

Almost all phones released prior to 2013, including Asha 305, 306, 308, 309, 310, 311 and others

  • I have Nokia Asha 206 and I want to delete some unwanted system files, plz suggest me that how can I do that???

  • i have restart my nokia asha 309…and i lost my number and text converstion. now i want to recover the ?

  • This is simply awesome. It worked correctly for my Asha 309. I was able to reclaim 16.5MB. I had to download nokia suite on my laptop and then mobi,MB software. I followed the exact process and I was good to go. Now I have enough megabytes to update my whatsapp. Thanks Singh.
    NB: I think you were referring the nokia suite to be on the PC and not the phone as was written above.

  • Hey i’m using Asha 310 phone. when i’m adding a new connection it says
    The driver could not be loaded for one of the following reasons
    “The system does not support this type of connection”
    “there is a problem with your driver configuration”
    “the item already exists”

    what should i do.. please advice me

    • Well I was facing the same problem with my Nokia Asha 305. To solve the driver issue, I borrowed ‘driverPack solution’ DVD from a friend and installed all the missing nokia drivers prompted there (phone should be connected via USB and ovi suit mode has to be selected). As soon as all the missing drivers got installed, my phone’s internal drive was there and accessible and I deleted about 9mb of useless softwares from my phone and now there is enough of free memory. Try to manage ‘driverpack solution’ dvd and install the required drivers. Will work hopefully. All the best.
      (note: be careful what you should delete and what not. do not delete something you are not sure what it is or the phone may malfunction.)

  • i also have nokia 200 but it doesn’t showing phone memory and the SD card.. It is only showing inbox… Plzzz help

  • I’m using pretty new Nokia 515 Dual Sim. I like it very much but the battery is running out in ca 3-4 days. And I believe it’s because of some applications which are trying to connect to Internet although I’ve switched off all possible ways that the phone could access Internet ๐Ÿ™‚ The phone says “A preferred data SIM is needed to keep app online. Continue?”. I want to somehow get rid of the disturbing message and keep the battery last longer. One more thing – I’d actually like to get rid of all the unnecessary software on the phone – Twitter, WhatsApp, Facebook, and others which want or may want to connect to Internet. Can you help/advise, how could I do it?

  • I downloaded whatsapp into my nokia asha 302 but i cant find it in any folder.After downloading it,it said “file downloaded to predefovibrowser”,why is this? And where can i get the file or resolve this problem?? Please help

  • Am using 503 nokia asha dual sim nd my phone downloads some apps nd say ”there is no app that could run this app” if u hve a solution plz help!!!

    A java app has been developed which can open the system files of any asha phone. I have successfully tested it on asha 230 and asha 501. You can delete all preinstalled apps along with ringtones and wallpapers and even the user guide. You can also copy them to your sd card but I have not tried this so try copying a useless app to sd card and delete it from system files then see if you can run the app from sd card. I suspect it wont work. I strongly recommend that you do not delete nokia xpress browser or facebook mobile app because you cannot reinstall them in any way unless you reinstall the whole software again. You will loose video streaming if you delete nokia xpress browser. I used it on my asha 230 and now I have 33 mb free in my phone. The phone still lags. I recommend that you clear the counters of your asha phone. I did and am experiencing less lag. It will take a lot of time to do that but is worth the wait and keep on doing that once in a while. I am sharing this with you hoping this will help you. If it does do let me know and please pass it on. Good luck.
    Download Open Root Beta:

    • Hi Neeraj John,
      Thanks for the Open Root app, I managed to delete useless pre-installed apps from my asha 503.
      However the icons of them are still on the main screen with grey color (they are inactive).

  • Hi Narender, i am using nokia asha 308 i have deleted most of the apps but still i don’t have much space left I want to know can i delete files which are in my temp folder is it safe to delete them?

    • Maybe disable Norton temporarily first? You can check the detailed report. It can be called an unwanted or suspected program due to no signing, but it is not a virus ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hi Narendar Singh, I have Asha 500. But the phone memory is full of junk fils. As a result, it hangs a bit. Tried many methods to access the phone memory,but failed If you have any idea to clear these junk files and clean up RAM, please share with me.

    Is there any solution for this ?

    • Unfortunately, there is no easy way to delete the ones which cannot be deleted using this tool. You’d have made enough free storage by deleting others that you do not need to worry ๐Ÿ™‚

      • Ok thanks.
        But do you have Oxycube ?
        If yes than please provide me the link.
        I want to try with Oxycube maybe its works.

    Please help. ๐Ÿ™

        • what can i do when i open the mobile permanently message seen on screen “A preferred data sim is needed to keep app online continue?” i don’t want to data connection on any sim,

          • Then you need to delete that particular app (probably WhatsApp) or just set a preferred SIM and delete its configuration settings. That should help.

    • If you cannot free up space using this tool, you’d be needed to reset your phone to factory using the Recovery Tool.

  • Hey Narendra,

    Nice post man. I was successful in browsing and deleting games files but not their icons. Mine is Nokia asha 311. Can you suggest how to get rid of those unwanted icons as well.

    NOT: When I tried to delete icon files there came an error (Error deleting item )

    Awaiting your reply.

    Thanks and Regards,


    • Let them stay there. Just restart your phone and those apps should be gone from the menu as well as myapps. Those icons are just a few bytes which don’t really consume much space ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Hi, I am using a Nokia Asha 306. I have installed MobiMB on my PC and followed all of your instructions. However, nothing is being displayed in step 9. What can I do? Also when I connect my phone to the PC which option should I choose to connect? Nokia Suite, Media Transfer or Mass Storage?

    • You need to use the Nokia Suite mode. Just make sure that you have installed Connectivity Cable Drivers oj your PC and Nokia Suite is not running in the background.

      • Thanks alot, I did as you advised and installed both the Nokia Suite mode and the Connectivity Cable on my PC. It worked! Now I can view my phone’s internal details. My only challenge is I dont know how to delete the files I really dont want the most: NOTIFICATIONS and NEWS AND OFFERS which are found in the folder “my apps.” Im not able to see them. Please help, I dont want to temper with anything that might lead to my phone mulfunctioning. These files are of no use to me, but just finish up the phone space. Secondly, when I try to delete an item on the right column in MobiMB, am getting the message ERROR DELETING ITEM. What is the solution to this?

        • Some items just cannot be deleted and we have no other easy way to delete them. Its been long since I used the tool, so I’m not sure where those apps are located (maybe My Apps only). They are also not named properly so it gets a bit hard to find out which one is it.

        • Hi, i have the same problem. But now i have found where the NOTIFICATIONS and NEWS AND OFFERS located.
          It is in C:/Java/Collection.

          • Oh great! I have located the folder. Now inside the folder there are five sub-folders namely: cherry_conf, WhatsApp_private, napi_ALL_private, tips_AFS_private and mb_data. Which ones among these fives are NOTIFICATIONS and NEWS AND OFFERS? I will be most grateful for your help. Thanks.

        • If a restart doesn’t help, you’d be needed to flash your phone with factory firmware which will delete all data on your phone.

  • i canโ€™t see my phoneโ€™s file system after following all the steps. please help
    and my phone is nokia asha 305 help me guys

  • I have done as what you’ve told. however, the files in the phone does not appear in the application. what should i do? i really need to get rid of those pre install games etc

  • fuck this method is so dangerous. my phone can’t respond when I open my phone it stuck on “Nokia” I think I’m gonna reformat my phone. fuck you brother you destroy my Nokia 306. ./.

    • Well, you’re the first one to say that. So you’re the one who messed up the things.
      I’ve instructed in the post about what is safe to delete. If you find yourself mature enough to play with other things, also be mature to accept your mistakes instead of putting the blame onto others.
      BTW, Nokia Care Suite can help you in getting the phone back to life.

  • so basically mobimb is absolute crap ,costs 30 quid and will only work on about 2 models,wat a waste of time downloadin it .

    • And who asked you to buy that? A repacked version of MobiMB is attached to the post and it works on majority of the S40 devices launched before 2013.
      MobiMB is not being actively developed and its development actually stopped years before.

  • Thanks for another wonderful article. Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such an ideal way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such information. kgfdgdfgdkde

  • Hi, I have a nokia asha 210 and I’m having a problem saying that I can’t download the whatsapp due to insuficient space… but I have a memory card in the phone and the last time it happend I moved all I could to the memory card and it worked, now is happening again and I even try to delete some pictures but still say that I don’t have enough memory when I try to download whatsapp.
    Could you help me please, I haven’t been able to use whatsapp for over a month.

    • You need to sideload the jar and jad files of WhatsApp to the Memory Card, reset the phone and then open WhatsApp from the Memory Card.

      • Hi Narendar
        I have the Nokia 206 and am having exactly the same problem as Lee.

        I have a 32GB memory card but i cant move whatsapp onto it.

        Woudl really appreciate if you can help

        • I’d recommend you the same as I did to others. Reset the phone, sideload WhatsApp to the SD card and then run it from the SD card. Don’t touch the one that is pre-installed and replace it’s icon in the homescreen with the one installed on your SD.

    • Try editing the ini file to Add Nokia 210. Dunno if it will work for you or not.
      There is no other way besides this though.

  • Hi,

    I have a Nokia Asha 210 and I have followed the steps. but still i am facing problem with the connectivity drivers. Where to install that? Should we install that in the PC or in the phone itself?

    • The 210 is not supported out of the box. Editing needed and still works for some, doesn’t for others.

    • Have you installed the Nokia Connectivity Cable Drivers? And do make sure Nokia Suite is not running in the background.

  • Hey I’am using asha 306 n facing lots of problems. It’s so many files are deleted such as : Nokia Store Calculator Alarm etc.
    n have done factory reset twice but nothing happend. Please help me.

  • For deleting a preinstalled file in nokia

    first copy any file (image/tone/any other text file) in memory card, and rename it by MiniCommander or BlueFTP or UC Browser’s file manager. Now go to Gallery> Memory card (not My apps> Memory card) and mark and move it to Tones. (Do not directly move, just mark and move). You will see -“Item already exist”. Now go to Tones and go to and go to option, you will see delete option highlighted. Do same with wallpapers/other tones also. You can delete multiple files by renaming and mark & moving multiple files at once.

  • Done everything.. Nokia Asha 305, PC Suite not running, and still while deleting bloatware, it says “error deleting item”. Please Help!

    • That’s the limitation of program. It cannot remove just everything. Skip the files on which it says error.

  • hi, i rmvd hidn files frm my nokia asha 305 mob… bt nw i cant update my fone..nd cant play utube vdoz…?? y?

  • Nice, thanks for this tutorial.

    It works on Nokia Asha 311 (even the preinstalled games aren’t very huge), but there is a but…

    When you remove a preinstalled game the icon is left in the “main pane” of applications. Any hint on removing it?

    One of my main goals was to remove those icons from the pane.


      • Didn’t work with a restart, that’s why I asked ๐Ÿ˜‰

        Finally I could remove by placing one of the removed games in the user applications folder (collections, in my case) with MobiMB; run it; try to remove from main pane (editing apps for move and deletion) without success; removing from user applications (my applications) in the mobile (without MobiMB) and restart.

        This time, vanished the icon, but not only for that application, but the others removed too.

        Hope this is helpful for someone.

        You can reference it in the post, if someone need it.

        • Thanks for the input, Javier. The file system just acts crazy at times. Still good that you managed to remove those icons.

  • really need to get my phone workin. can’t receive messages, or use any other app… can’t even play music with my phone, i need help pls…

  • pls i did all u ppl asked but nothin is showin on my pc, can’t see the apps on my phone….. nothin, why?

  • It’s Nokia 202.
    My inbuilt nokia theme, inbuilt games,apps(converter,nokia store etc. . .), prediction words are deleted automatically, music player is not working. Other things are OK. What to do to restore the lost things??? (restored factory settings 3 times.)

  • Does it work with Nokia Asha 210 ?

    Thanks for your time.

    It’s a lame I can’t update even my phone cause not enough space. I only use 3 apps. I delete all text messages and all images and videos I downloaded are in my micro memory sd.

    good day.

    • Javier, out of the box, it doesn’t. But we’re just discussing the same thing in THIS comment thread. It may work, but I am not so sure.

    • Thanks for notifying ๐Ÿ™‚ terminated our account due to some reason. I’ve fixed the link though.

  • using asha 210. and the phone memory is just 250KB now. no apps installed in phone except pre-installed apps. what should I do to free up my phone memory space? even music player is not working as it is saying to delete some data to load. but nothing to delete. please help.

      • thanks for the solution. will check it out. but there’sone more thing! can I uninstall the pre-installed junkies using mobiMB? I have tried but not succeeded as my phone is not showing in the list after connecting. any solution regarding this? thanks in advance. โ˜บ

        • Neel, there is mixed response. Some say that the Nokia 210 is supported by MobiMB if you add its config details in the Nokia.ini file. But I can’t confirm this as I don’t own a 210 ๐Ÿ™‚

          • hey!! thanks a lot for ur support. ๐Ÿ™‚ It works!!! but now the new problem is – only inbox is showing in mobiMB. nothing else. and inbox is empty too. connected via Bluetooth coz via data cable mobiMB is unable to detect my handset. tell me if any solution available for this.

            • Neel, with bluetooth, that’s the only thing that will be shown. The files can only be accessed by connecting the phone via a USB Cable.
              Now that cable didn’t work, do you have the Nokia Connectivity Cable Drivers installed? Also make sure Nokia Suite is not running in the background.

          • Hello, what is the config details of the Nokia Asha 210 to put in the Nokia.ini file. No clue what to add. Thank you.

            • You just need to copy the code from another product code and replace the RM-XXX with the RM code of your 210. Again, not sure if that works.

  • My friend you know if with nokia 208 it work? Other thing you know if I use the 208 as modem, if I contiinue receiving calls, do calls, if I can use the calendar etc, with an active conection?

  • Is there any another way
    i am asking coz mine is Nokia Asha 206 Dual Sim
    and it doesn’t have USB connector to pair with PC ๐Ÿ™
    what should i do now ????

  • Hi, I’m using Asha 501. When I connect I can see that my mobile is connected (as it show RM-902 on left panel) but, I can’t see any files. Pleas help me in this or share me the edited file for RM-902. And I don’t know where paste that file.

  • Hey so I connected my phone with my pc via nokia suite (made sure it wasn’t running in the background). When i opened mobimb and clicked on the File then Settings, nothing happens. What’s wrong? I use a Nokia Asha 309 and the low phone memory is killing me. Lol Help please. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks.

  • Guys! I hv a solution of a problem ( conflicting errors ) which comes in some low range nokia phones. If this happens….yor phone default apps dont work…. Do only one thng…. Switch off your phone nd after some time switch on yor phone, a message of conflicting error will show, will be indicating to press ‘yes’ or ‘no’ but you wont sellect any option, just press ‘END’ and yor phone apps will be ready to be used.
    Isnt it easy…. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Can you please suggest a way to delete the pre installed apps in Nokia Asha 503?? Apparently it doesnt use Nokia Suite.. Only Connectivity driver.. So I used this MobiMB, but my files are not showing..

    I’ll be really grateful if you would help out.. Thanks a ton! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I have a nokia asha306, cant install nokia sit on it and cant access the mobimb file.after downloading it doesnt show up and cant delete apps. Please help.

  • Hi I installed the mobimb and connect the phone through cable but it is not listing anything. Any suggestions? I have nokia asha 311. I am using one micro usb cable not Nokia made of-course, purchased from local shop

    • Just a few questions:
      Which windows are you using?
      Have you installed the Nokia Suite or Nokia Connectivity Cable Drivers? Be sure to exit it before opening MobiMB.
      Have you selected Nokia Suite mode on the phone?

      • Hi Thanks for quick reply. I am using Windows 7 professional 64 bit with SP1. I didn’t install Nokia suit(perhaps that is the reason it wasn’t listing any files.) Id dis show up Nokia usb connection in MobiMB but on clicking nothing was happening. I tried all 3 modes, Nokia suite , media transfer and mass storage without any luck

    how can I do ?

  • After updating my phone’s (nokia 200) software using nokia suite,it is always showing phone not enough memory message in suite. And to my surprise there’s no data that i can see in my phone. I deleted all games which came by default in the phone itself. I dont understand the problem yet. Can this software is helpful in identifying any hidden files? Or the problem is different?

    Thank you.

  • Annoyingly sad that Nokia Asha 206 seems to be technically challenged to work with Mobimb. How I wish there was a way to delete some unwanted programs to create useable space

      • I followed all the step. But 9th step phone fileโ€™s not shown on mobimb screen. Help me how can i remove all app in my nokia asha phone.

        • Do you have Nokia Suite installed? Then make sure it is not running in the background.
          If you don’t have Nokia Suite, install the connectivity cable drivers.
          Finally select Nokia Suite on your Phone when you connect via USB.

  • It doesn’t work with Nokia 206- Dual sim! I connect it via Bluetooth option but files are not showing up! Any help?

  • DUDE!


  • I have NOKIA ASHA 501 and have updated system software. After this update all the messages disappeared. Have tried to restore from back up but in vain. PLZZZZZ HELP.

  • I got no cable connections in my nokia asha 206, only bluetooth connectina available. MobiMB not showing any app after connection…ANY OTHER WAY???

  • Windows 7 and I think so I’m not sure, When I connected my phone to the PC it said downloading software for phone. So I think so

    • Oh nvm I realised im supposed to put my phone in the same mode for Nokia Suite when I connect it via cable for it to display in MobiMB. Not in the usual ‘mass storage’ mode… but a link to download the ‘Nokia Connectivity Cable Driver’ may still be helpful to others so do post it when you can ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hey I am using the nokia 515 and I want to delete some preinstalled apps.
    I followed your instructions but not even one file of my phone shows up in MobiMB. Do you have and advice?

      • Narender. Sorry to ask you direct but what settings would need to be applied to the ‘nokia.ini’ file in order to get system access to the Nokia 515 device?


    • Mike

      Did you ever manage to delete the pre-installed apps (system files) on your Nokia 515 by editing the nokia.ini file?

      I look forward to hearing from you.

      Thanks. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You said not to delete that notifications so I didnt and its ok…..
    And in collections there is few cherry_IND files..Shoul i delete them buddy..??

    • Notifications app is used to receive push notifications. So if you don’t need push notifications from Facebook, Nimbuzz, WeChat, Line or all those apps, you can delete it. Cherry_IND is the tips application. So if you don’t need it, you can delete ๐Ÿ˜›
      I don’t know what all to suggest to delete. You can delete the music files and tones.. Some useless games and that similar sort of stuff. Just depends on what you need and what you don’t.

  • Hey I just wrote a similar comment to one of another user stating that I could not seem to access any files via the MobiMB application on my Nokia Asha 306 while running Windows 7 but my comment appears to have been deleted. This is a serious request and any help would be appreciated, so please don’t delete my response again.

  • Hi there,

    I followed all the above steps however no files appear in the MobiMB media browser. I have an Asha 306 and am running Windows 7.
    I keep receiving the message that my phone memory is full and would like to delete some useless stuff, however I can’t seem to access it via the MobiMB, seems I have the same problem as user Hamed.

    Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    • If your handset is RM-768, then it is supported. Try installing the latest Nokia Connectivity Cable drivers and make sure Nokia Suite/Nokia PC Suite is not running in the background.

  • please tell a alternative way since asha 206 has no usb slot.please tell how to do it using bluetooth.i have the bluetooth device…..i expect a favourable reply from you since i cant store any messages at it has some crap apps like utv,nokia nearby,etc etc

  • I uninstalled WhatsApp using built-in delete menu item from my Asha 302 but now it stays connected to the internet automatically. If it’s connected to the wireless router and I disconnect it manually (it also says that there’s an existing connection started) after a couple of seconds it connects again, so I think it’s from WhatsApp that used to start automatically with phone startup and also connected automatically to wireless or carrier internet. How can I view “startup” applications and remove them?

    Thank you.

  • I have downloaded the MobiMB and followed all your steps but at step 9, MobiMB was showing nothing at all. I am using Windows XP, my phone’s an Asha 309. I connected it first without the memory card using media transfer, nothing was shown. I tried again connecting it via Nokia Suite repeating steps 6, 7 and 8. Still nothing was shown. Finally i tried again with the memory card in it and connected it as Mass Storage Device and even then nothing happened. ๐Ÿ™

    • MobiMB is no longer being developed. This was a modded repack. You can look around somewhere else if you don’t like our version. The functionality is pretty limited, but there’s nothing more that we can do.

  • 1 more question, in my phone memory details, it says 42Mb messaging! if I delete everything in my inbox/outbox/etc, I’ll get about 700kbs free, what’s eating up the rest of my memory???????

    • ๐Ÿ˜ฎ That’s really strange. I have like over 2000 or more messages, but they’re still merely using around 11.3 MB. Nevermind, that should definitely be a bug where the phone is unable to clear out all of the messages. Resetting the phone to factory might be helpful.

  • I have 206 Dual Sim. I have downloaded the new update. But I am not able to install it, due to low system memory. All of which are wasted due to bloatwares. How Do I remove them, guess bluetooth connection will not be able to do that.

    How to flash firmware in this case.

      • Exactly that. When I select the maps icon on my phone this web application comes up. Not Nokia maps. I found this link using MobiMB software in Menuapps/Ovinacivation folder. In this folder there are 2 files maps_EUC.jay and maps_EUC.jad. This latter is readable and has some links in it and the link I posted is what I see on my phone when selecting Nokia Maps.
        Thanks for your reply

        • Ahh.. Well this is seriously stupid that an app from the store uses the same Name and publication info as used by Nokia Maps. This probably made it over-write the original Nokia Maps and take their place.
          Now, however I’m not sure as to how to get back your original Nokia Maps, but I’ve uploaded the original jar and jar files for Nokia Maps here (need to be extracted from the zip). Deleting the old ones using MobiMB and then re-installing the new ones by placing them on the phone memory should do the trick, but I’m not sure if its possible to custom install the Maps client. Try and find out.

          • Hello, I deleted the old files and put the new downloaded files in the same folder. Now maps does not load anymore. I get a “Application not found message” and closes.
            In the past days I tried with a factory reset but did not work and I tried a restore of a backup of March, when everything worked OK but also that did not work.
            I do not what to do.

          • I have new informations. I tried turning of then on my phone and the maps icon has disappeared. Gone! I tired to download a free map app from Nokia store, well, it does the same as Nokia maps; it shows me where I am. Nothing else. In any case maps as it was, it was useless. Now it’s gone completely.
            Maybe Nokia service can do something, and I will find out after summer holidays.

            • Can you try re-installing the maps now by pasting them to your phone memory? Not in that menu apps folder instead in Apps and Games/ Collection. Then browse to My Files> Apps and tap on Nokia Maps

          • I con not find a maps folder anywhere. In the Media Card I have a folder named cities which contains all the maps downloaded.
            Instead the maps icon is back but tapping it I get a conflict message and asked if want to delete the maps app. I have not done it till now.
            Any suggestion where are the maps.

            • Copy the jar and jad files of maps from your phone to your PC and delete them from the phone. Now restart your phone and copy those to any of your phone memory folder which is accessible through files. Open the app using files afterwards.

  • Can you tell me how to restore my original Nokia Maps on my ASHA 311. Now all I can do is find where I am nothing else possible. This happened after an update, done stupidly by me. I have browsed through the files but found no Maps folder and Nokia Suite says everything ok with my maps.

  • How do I move whatsapp from the device memory to the memory card? there are many folders and files associated with it and I’m not sure what to do.

    • This does not work for the 501. Otherwise, the downloaded files are sorted according to their type. Lke Music goes to Music Files and Videos to Videos ๐Ÿ™‚

  • can’t you develop an app for adjusting it’s brightness?
    by the way, thanks for your efforts,
    but i think that unlike other bugs in asha 311, this one disturbs the most, so if you find a way to fix it, i’ll appreciate it very much, moreover, i think you’ll become more famous when people will find it’s solution on your blog, please try to fix it, please…

    • Well.. Yeah Nothing is Impossible, but its impossible when you don’t know how to do that. An application will not work, just because they can’t run in the background and while it will be running, you can’t access anything else.
      I’ve already tried my best, but will still keep on looking if I find some way to reduce the brightness. Bad Luck for now ๐Ÿ™

    • This is just impossible. Both are completely different platforms and run on different hardware architecture. Running S60 on a S40 phone is not possible, unless you are a super experienced developer who can mod everything and build a new ROM with borrowed stuff and proper drivers.

  • Amazing…Got everything perfectly done in first step..

            • This is pretty strange brother. Bad Luck or what, IDK. But you might be needed to flash your phone if you’re unable to find what has been filling up your phone.
              Have you listened to the internet radio?

              Try clearing the cache (C:/HTTP/cache)! But its strange if cache is so large.

          • what do you mean by flashing my phone ?

    Are they like Temp files in computer/windows?
    Is there any problem if I will delete those files?

    • Temp is always for temporary files, but the files might be used by the system for something. As they don’t eat much of your space, you shouldn’t worry about them ๐Ÿ™‚

  • @ singhnsk: hey bro, I managed to delete the requested app (it is located in: Games & Apps > Games >), (and the 3 files to delete are called: Widget_Nokia_Asha_305_306_101.jad / Widget_Nokia_Asha_305_306_101.Jar / GamesList.txt). It seems that this app comes with the new 7.35 (which comes standard with improved new apps, ebuddy, facebook, twitter, notifications and whatsapp). I guess for some country updates they included this app called “Top Games”. Well for those who also have this app and what to delete it from there Asha. Search for the above files in your MobiMB :-D.

      • i have nokia asha 305.. i cannot connect the phone after downloading it.. how should i connect it??

        • For nokia asha 305

          step 1: connect usb cable with the option nokia suite, system will automatically detect driver if u have internet connection
          step 2: now run MoibMB and it will show Nokia 305 in connection just click ok

  • Hey bro ๐Ÿ˜€

    I’ve installed the MobiMB software and it works great, thnx for the good job :-D. I have some questions thought and perhaps you might be able to help me. I’ve updated my Nokia Asha 305 to the newest firmware (don’t know theversion right now), but is came with eBuddy, Whatsapp, Facebook and Top Games pre-installed. W’ll are new apps are, fine, but. This “Top Games” app (not EA) I don’t like, first because I don’t use it, second, Nokia used such a ugly icon for it, that is does not match the rest of the Asha icons design. So, I want it get is off my phone :-D. However, I somehow cannot find this app in the MenuApps browser, any idea? This “Top Games” app seems to be some kind of shortcut, redirecting me to the Nokia Store.

    Some help removing this things would be awesome bro ๐Ÿ˜€ Thnx

    • It should be some app that is doing it. I don’t have a 305 and my 311 didn’t receive any such update. So, can’t say the exact name for the app. Try looking into collections and the games section. If not there, check out each app in the menuapps section. Should be at one of those places.

  • Very nice software thanks a lot for ur post.I am jst bored with that low memory. But one problem arises I deleted my notification app by mistake then can u please give me any link to download it.please help me.

  • Sir, why you are not help me?

  • Thanx Sir,

  • my phone ( asha 311 ) didn’t come bundled with a usb cable. i bought a Samsung usb cable but haven’t opened the package. I am wondering if this usb cable will be compatible with my phone?


    • Almost every MicroUSB cable will work on the device as the USB standards are the same.
      If the cable is fine, i don’t see any reason why it won’t work. Go ahead, open the package and use it ๐Ÿ™‚

  • My set is Nokia Asha 311. When i last updated my phone, i got a new version 7.36. But Mail and Mail for Exchange are not working in my phone. Whenever i tap these icons, they don’t open. What is the solution???

  • Thanks for sharing this,

    Sir, my phone is properly displaed in background, but i am using nokia pc suite 7.1 and i connected via bluetooth.

    And sir you told me that contact to nokia care, i already tell them.
    And what is re-flashed?

    • Nokia PC Suite? You haven’t upgraded to the new Nokia Suite yet?
      Nevermind. You need to close Nokia Suite and connect using a Data Cable to access the files. Bluetooth won’t work ๐Ÿ™

  • How about just deleting non-protected files? my bro sent me a a music file via bluetooth and i want to delete it. i am using asha 311.

  • Hi…My problem is that, I downloaded java games for my phone then I tried to delete them. But my phone gave me an error. When I press ” Apps. And Games “, the phone closes itself and opens immediately, and gives some white lights when doing this.

    I did the hard factory format, and soft. I updated the version of my phone. But anyway nothing changed the situation.Then I learned that, the phone could’nt delete all files,when I tried to delete games.So this must open the error way. Now, with your sharing, I can open the files. But I dont know, how can I clean this sh*ts.

    Thank you so much for sharing. I like this website. Lastly, sorry for my bad English ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Bro my mobile is nokia 2690 . I have downloaded some authority certificates with my default browser . But i can not use them in app signing . I mean , there is no opportunity to tik/select them in app. Signing option . What can i do now ?

  • Many thanks for original post. I’ve an Ash 310. Somehow shed loads of music files from a 32gb memory disc have found their way to the phone memory. I’ve deleted the music but have all the library jpeg’s etc. It appears that I have to delete file by file because I keep getting ” error deleting item” when I try to delete more than one.

    • Yeah some of those files can’t be deleted. That’s why it shows that error. Don’t select all the files. Instead, try with like 10 files from the middle. They might be deleted together.

  • Thank you verymuch singh, i could able to free the space in my asha 305 mobile, thank you very much

  • Veryy ty bro!! i delete the silly videos ๐Ÿ˜€ and a question…. u know if Nokia drop the s40 OS of the 311/309, 310 and others ashas?
    Im tired no updates for my 311 ;(

    • Most probably you know the answer. Asha OS has been introduced and if you go by business view, there’s no point in continuing developing and improving the previous S40 OS when they have something new to work on.
      All other Asha touch phones have received update to something like a 7.xx version, but 311 is still stuck at 5.xx. All that I’m hoping for is a few more bug fixes for these older Asha phones and then dumping them. Above everything, there’s no idea. Some Nokia employee confirmed that an update is being worked on (maybe 311 will get the newer Asha OS? :P), but no signs of it till now. Better to not keep any expectations and if an update arrives, we’ll be very lucky ๐Ÿ˜€

      • ohh yeah i know that :/ hope less a update to fix bugs and add control brigthness and a Little hope to get the new asha OS haha
        Ty for the answer

  • I didn’t see any folders or anything after step 8. I tried connecting via bluetooth but it only showed the folder inbox. I followed each and every single step. What could be the problem?

        • Just nothing? Have you configured the connection settings to CA-101 cable? Make sure Nokia Suite is installed but not running. Make sure that you select Nokia Suite mode on your phone. Which windows are you using? Try Right Click> Run As Administrator.

          • just a quick question, which one of the files should I delete to remove social, notifications, internet (the default one for nokia phones), chat, maps, mail, facebook, twitter, weather, and tips… ๐Ÿ˜€

            • LOL you wanna remove everything ๐Ÿ˜›
              For Social, remove the .jar and .jad files from /c/menuapps/social
              For Notifications, remove jar and jad file called nappy_all from /games and apps/collections/
              For internet (xpress browser? the other one can’t be removed), remove jar and jad files from /c/menuapps/ovibrowser/

              For Chat, its /c/menuapps/Imclient/
              Twitter and Facebook is part of Nokia Social. So no need.
              Weather can be removed by deleting files from /c/menuapps/weather/
              Tips = /games and apps/collections/Cherry_xyz (.jar and .jad)

              But this is too much. Not a good idea to remove all these as someday you might need these again ๐Ÿ™‚

    • At first thanks for the software.

      It’s 100% working. If you don’t get the phone driver then it won’t work.
      Following are the steps that, I did to configure my Nokia Asha 200.

      1. Installed Nokia PC Suite 7.

      2. Then installed Nokia Suite.

      3. After this when you connect you Nokia Asha 200 or similar phone it will install the driver of the cellphone.

      4. Make sure that your Nokia PC Suite and Nokia Suite both are not running. (We only require the drivers.)

      5. Then install MobiMB Mobile Media Browser (provided here) and start.

      6. Connect the phone to the computer and sellect Nokia Mode.

      7. Then goto File -> Settings -> Connections -> add a connection -> Cable Connection (Serial or USB) -> Nokia native USB phones -> CA-101 cable (Micro-USB).

      8. After you complet this it should show you Nokia 200 Asha (I tried with Nokia Asha 200).

      I hope this will help for anybody, who is not able to configure their cell phones.
