It is obvious that n-gage games are becoming unpopular with the advent of Symbian HD Games. In fact Nokia did not make the matter easier with the announcement that they have discontinued support for ngage games.
That notwithstanding, this should not stop us from enjoying our wonderful ngage games on our Nokia s60v3 phones because the so-called HD Games are not available for older Nokia phones it is mostly for symbian^3 and newer phones.
Ngage Games Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
In this post, I will be creating a platform to enable us to familiarize ourselves with the common errors in ngage games installation and gameplay.

Do I really need to hack my phone to install ngage games?
Yes. This is the very first necessary thing to do. If you don’t do this and you have a non-official compatible phone, then you won’t be able to install and play it. My repacks are NOT in any way signed, or just simple
to say, they are UNSIGNED. I don’t and won’t give time to sign it, just because the tutorial already gives you the ability to install any UNSIGNED application.
Why do I get “Certificate Error” and I’m not able to install?
Read the answer above.
How can I back up my game progress, save data?
Always make a back-up of all the files and folder in (”C:private20007b39″). Then place it back again, overwrite, to bring it back. this is good when updating the N-Gage application or changing phones.
OR you could try to back-up these folders separately (”C:private20007b39″):
- 2000afb9 – System Rush: Evolution
- 2000afbb – Space Impact Kappa Base
- 2000afbc – Hooked On: Creatures of the Deep
- 2000afbd – Snakes Subsonic
- 2000afbe – Mile High Pinball
- 2000afda – EA SPORTS™ FIFA 08
- 2000afdb – Tetris® 2000afe3 – Asphalt 3: Street Rules™
- 2000afe5 – Block Breaker Deluxe
- 2000b4b3 – Brain Challenge™
- 2000afd9 – World Series of Poker® Pro Challenge
- 2000afde – Sims 2 Pets
- 2000AFE4 – Brothers in Arms
- 2000AFBA – Pro Series Golf
- 2000B4B2 – Midnight Pool
- 2000AFC0 – Bounce 2000AFC4 – Reset Generation
- 2000AFC3 – Jadestone Dirk

Does this fix the 50 friends bug? (as of N-Gage 1.01 Build 1296)
Yes, as reported by Devitrianto.
Will this fix 10,000 points bug? (as of N-Gage 1.01 Build
Yes, it will. As the developers told it, this is just a temporary fix.
Is there a full-screen fix for my phone? (176×208 / 320×240 / 352×416 (e.g Nokia N80)
As of now, there is no fix for this. I don’t know if someone will ever find one. Let’s just wait and hope for the best.
I cannot log in to n-gage arena anymore, it says “invalid player
name or password”?
This is because Nokia has stopped support for N-gage arena (before it used to be because your IMEI
and some information on your phone is also embedded in your account. Back-up all the files
and folder in “C:private20007b39″. Then place it back again. I don’t think this will work when changing
phones, because of the IMEIs conflict. You will need to “unhook” your phone account to your IMEI, by asking for the administrator on the official N-Gage forum).
How can I play in landscape mode on my phone?
I suggest you not to do this, because this is sometimes the culprit of having a “KERN-EXEC 3″ and
or “USER-EXEC 3″ error. But if you really insist, I suggest you change this file before you play
or open your N-Gage application FOR THE FIRST TIME:
- Use n73_20001079.txt for Pre-FP1 phones.
- But if your phone is FP-1, try using n81_20001079.txt.
- If it still doesn’t work, use either 6110_5700XM_6120c_20001079.txt
or n82_20001079.txt. Then, try to delete this file: (”C:Private10202be9persists20001079.cre”).
I can’t play the game that I want, it says “KERN-EXEC 3″ or “USER-EXEC 3″ error?
This is sometimes due to improper 20001079.txt placed on your phone or there is nothing placed yet. If your phone is Pre-FP1, use either the 20001079.txt for 3250, E70, N73, N93 / N93i, I prefer the one for N73. If your
phone is FP1, use either the one for 6290, N76, N81, N95 / N95i / N95 PR2, I prefer the one for N81. If this doesn’t work, it is sometimes caused by the different hardware and software of the phone. Some phones can’t play all the games (non-N-Series and E-Series phones). Try asking on where you downloaded the game and see
if they have a fix for this.
Why am I having “System Error”?
Sometimes these are due to misnamed access points. Always check for it and access points
should not have ” ‘ ” (apostrophe). Just to be sure, do not place any special characters on it.
Why does it say “Out of memory”?
I suggest that you restart your phone before t necessarily after) playing any N-Gage games. A fresh restart means -> fresher, cleaner memory RAM of the phone -> cleaner memory RAM, means faster phone
response (loading). And N-Gage 2.0 takes a lot of RAM to start. This should also fix the error “Not enough memory”. And make sure that there’s no many applications eating your memory on the background.
Can I update my profile and play on the arena?
You can set your N-Gage profile, update online, and play on N-Gage Arena. But I suggest not going to, keep in mind that every software/application that is cr4ked is illegal, and some people are having problems with it.
Can I have both cr4ked and legit games?
Yes, you can.
Why can’t I install a game that I want, it says “File Corrupted”?
If you’ve followed my tutorial, you won’t have this kind of problem. Just make sure that you’ve followed everything CORRECTLY! And if you followed it, and this error appears, this is sometimes due to
a corrupted game file that you’ve downloaded, make sure you’ve downloaded it correctly, properly, and is found working.
Do I need to do the chapters again to install games?
No. You just have to repeat chapter 3 when installing games for the N-Gage 2.0.
Do I have to install N-Gage_Patch.sisx every time that I’ll install a game?
No. You only have to install this once and this will work for all BiNPDA cr4ked N-Gage games.
The extract N-gage file to the PC button doesn’t work?
The extract to pc button does not notify you if the file is already extracted, it is extracted at the
same directory where you’ve opened the .exe game installer
