New features in the Care Suite 5.0
Light test is added for WP8 devices.
Detailed recovery instructions with pictures are done for WP8 devices.
Multi refurbish is enabled for WP8 devices.
For maximum 16 device simultaneous refurbish requires this setup:
-Use a PC that has at least four independent USB 2.0 host controllers.
-Connect no more than one powered external USB hub to each host controller
Each external hub must have its own independent power source, with the capability to supply at least 500 mA per device connected to it.
-Connect no more than four devices to each hub.
-Result: no more than these four devices will share the entire bandwidth of a single USB host controller,
and according to our testing, this is sufficient throughput at the current time for reliable use
of the USB bus when doing Windows Phone 8 device flashing.
Changes & Error corrections from previous version
SIM and memory card tests are updated for WP8 devices.
Menus are fixed for RM-843 and RM-852. These are disabled in this release for them: SW Reset, Touchpad calibration, ALS test and ALS calibration.
Offline installation: Uninstall previous version (2012.44.5) manually before installing this version.
Only the new Common Data Package Location (SR1315) is supported by default. If you need to use other Data Package Locations, they need to be added to the preferences manually.

PC must be connected to network, meaning that Ethernet cable must be connected to PC and connection needs to be configured to work properly. PC must be able to connect to for example internal network, but it is not necessary that PC has an online connection to Internet.
Known errors & limitations
Battery level check UI notification is shown every time before flashing of WP8 device because battery level check is not yet supported on device side.
FLS-5 Drivers included in the installation package do not support 64-bit WIndows operating systems. Therefore Care Suite PST can not be used for servicing phones which use FLS-5 (USB_FBUS) connection.
Please do not use diacritical signs when selecting installation path for NCS.
Recovery or Refurbishment Flashing for Lumia Series Devices may fail on first attempt. Please try again, it works the second time around
Pictures will disappear during Series 40 device SW Update. This is related to product specific data package configuration Asha drivers don’t install when devices are connected via USB hub (on win7). Hub works if user installs drivers first via straight USB connection.
PST release 5.0 can be installed on the same PC with all current Nokia Service Software Applications, but simultaneous use with earlier PST version 4.0 is not possible
