  1. Is there a way to change the Product Code of Asha 501?
    Tried multiple flash files, but NCS won’t flash any, except the one with the original product code.

    Apparently Mix Radio didn’t arrive in India and Indonesia has it. Was just thinking if I could flash an Indonesian Variant on my 501?
