Keyboard Shortcuts panel: Command Option Shift K To check or set your own custom shortcuts. Hello, I created an SSH key so that I can add it to Github. Shift + F10 (Function key F10).
I have a Nokia 515 (RM-953
, Series 40) as my daily driver phone. Recently, the keypad was damaged so that I can't access/unlock the phone. I can still turn it on and off (the "power on"/"decline call" button still works), but I'm unable to enter my PIN code or, critically, accept USB transfer to my laptop.
To be specific, I think one key, not sure which one, is stuck in "pressed down" mode, thereby stopping me from pressing any other buttons. I suspect so since, if left turned on, the phone display lights up again and again.
The problem is that all of my phone book entries, old messages and pictures are now trapped in the phone. I thought I had saved the phone book entries on my SIM card, but either I didn't, or they are stored in a way which can't be read on other devices (an Android phone finds nothing on the SIM card). I need to be able to access my phone to at least get the data out of it.
Similarly with the SD card -- it seems Nokia encrypts it somehow, so that it is not readable on my laptop or in Android phones.
When plugged in via USB to my Windows 7 system, both Windows and Nokia PC Suite detects the phone, and the phone display prompts me to accept mass storage or MTP transfer. Of course, I can't do either, so neither Nokia PC Suite nor Windows will allow me to transfer files.
I have ordered a replacement keypad and hope to be able to replace it myself, but while I wait for that, does anyone have any ideas about what I could do?
I looked into the somehow outdated Windows/Linux application gnokii
, which evidently has a function for sending keypresses to a phone
connected via USB:
--keysequence emulates pressing keys on phone keyboard. Input is read from stdin.
When connecting my phone to my Linux (Debian GNU/Linux 10 (buster)) system, via the provided, standard micro USB-to-USB cable. It starts charging, and lsusb gives me the following:
Bus 001 Device 013: ID XXXX:XXXX Nokia Mobile Phones
The gnokii Wiki seems to be down, but using an archived version of it
, I've tried to put together a conf file. Here's what my gnooki config file looks like:
[global] model = series40 port = 1 connection = dku2libusb
When trying to identify the phone, I get the following error message:
GNOKII Version 0.6.30 Couldn't open PHONET device: Operation not permitted Telephone interface init failed: Command failed. Quitting. Command failed.
I've also installed the Windows port of gnokii on my Windows 7 machine, with the following config settings:
[global] port = com1: model = series40 connection = serial
When running gnokii there, I get an error saying "Couldn't open FBUS device: Result too large", "Error in link initialisation: 1".
Not sure I have set the config file up correctly, or if gnokii can even connect to a phone which is not unlocked.
I also tried Wammu and Gammu, but they, too, fail to recognise or connect to the phone.
I've asked around at local cell phone repair points, but they only repair smart phones, it seems. Is there any way to send keypresses to a Nokia 515 without using the keypad? Thanks in advance.
