    Hi again,
    i have a lumia 920 with rm-822 inside (bought in china),
    i have been trying to flash it to rm-821 version with no success.
    i get this error:
    "The FFU file is not meant for this product. The platform ID of image does not match with platform ID of the device"
    i tried 3 different versions so far.
    what am i doing wrong?
    what is the platform ID anyway?
    can anyone help me please?

    I am not sure is it possible to do (from rm-822 to rm-821) ... and if it is possible how ? :( ... did you make a folder as rm-821 or rm-822 ?

    Did you try this way, like I suggested here (phone connected by USB cable, but a connection closed):

    Hi Jaripi,
    the nokia care suite does not allow me to open 822 folder so i created an 821 folder and put the files inside

    Did you chose your phone as rm-821 or rm-822 in Product support tool for store ? - did you see your firmware listed on a display (it should mention what fw it found from your computer) ... did you read my link instructions (it is flashing an unconnected phone, recovery option) ? - you can try by that method, but I have no idea how it will work ... I have flashed only the different rm-821 firmwares (different country varieties and versions, even then it asks me that do you really want flash unproper fw) ...

    Hmmm, you could try rename the files (to pass ID check), specially that FFU file ... but it is a high risk procedure ...

    I think that XDA forum have guys who had experience about flashing and boot loaders ... so you could ask advices from them (make a new thread there) - just tell them your case, they might like to help you out ...
