N-Gage 2.0 on your S60V5 Devices

Hello people. Many of us wish we could play N-Gage 2.0 on our touchscreen phones(other than N97 & N97 Mini). There is no official support so far for Nokia 5800 XpressMusic, Nokia 5233, Nokia 5235, Nokia 5230 and the rest. Nokia are in talks for making a N-Gage client for the Tube(Check out this link http://arena.n-gage.com/t5/Off-Topic-Forum/New-n-gage-enabled-phone-the-5800-Xpressmusic/m-p/425294) and their first game is going to be Guitar Hero which would make use of the plectrum that we received with our devices as a Guitar pick. I’m not sure this will even work, but there’s more to see.

To be able to play N-Gage 2.0 games on our Tubes and other V5 devices, we have to hack our phones.

The requirement of a physical keyboard for playing N-Gage 2.0 games can be met by installing Virtual Keyboard. It emulates the button inputs as if it were a real keyboard and we could play the games. (Download links can be found at the bottom.)

A few people have compiled(I’m not taking any credit for it) an N-Gage installer for the Tube and the other V5 devices. Please note that 5800 has a different installer and so does the 5230, 5233, 5235. So please choose the correct installer for your phone.

The cracks downloaded from websites don’t work on the N-Gage, but the trial downloaded from the official site works smoothly. Remember that wile playing the games you need to disable all the patches in the ROM Patcher. Otherwise the app may show “KER EXEC 30” error.

There are many problems while playing the games. Most usually, even though the games work smoothly, the unavailability of a physical keyboard strikes hard. While downloading games please download only games that are compatible with the N97. There is a chance that the others might not work.

Some of the games that I have tested so far work and I will be posting their names in another post.

Installation Instructions:

Nokia 5800:
Install N-gage installer(NGage 2.0 Installer 5800.sis)

Nokia 5233, 5230, 5235:
Install Ngage installer(N-Gage-5230-repack.sis)

After That, both users should install:
Now install virtual keyboard(Virtual Key Board.sis)

and then

Install ngage controller mod(ngage controller mod.sis)

Remember, you have to enable all the patches before installing them. Your phone must be hacked to play N-Gage 2.0

While playing the game disable all the patches.


    1. I use a 5233. When I installed this, I believe I had v20.1.01. A few days ago, I switched to v50, and I can strongly say that this is really unnecessary.

      To get back to the point, if you have followed all the instructions on here, I’m pretty sure that you’ll be able to install it.

      Just reply back telling me what problem it is that you are having, and I’ll be able to help you out more properly.

      And remember, your phone must be hacked for this. By hacking, I mean jailbreaking. There are a lot of tutorials on the net, be sure to check them out.

    1. Hello itot! Welcome to Gadgetroid! If you want to know, the 5230 Nuron version of the installer is universal, that is to say that it will work on most S60v5 devices. The only exceptions to running N-Gage 2.0 are if you own a C6-00 or any of the S^3 devices.

  1. Sorry, but as far as I’m aware, C6-00 has never supported N-Gage 2.0. The core files in C6-00 are completly different to that of the other v5 devices. This also the reason why N-Gage won’t work on C6 ported CFW’s.

  2. Note to all- the N-gage platform is now considered obsolete, as Nokia have closed down this portal officially following their announcement in 2011. All requests of game not found or not able to find cracked game will not be entertained. Support for this topic is closed.

  3. I have nokia c5-06 and i have installed ngage installer also installed the games but when i try to play the game shows kern exec 30 error please help me i want to play ngage games.

    1. Despite what others may claim, every S60v5 device is different from the other. The C5-05 is basically a device that is catered to women and as such has many changes to its firmware files that are a stark difference to those of that present in the earlier v5 devices. Symbian has lost all developer support (including mine), just because of the fact that the bloody Indians (I’m an Indian too, by the way) have pirated every bloody software out there. And I don’t think that the devs are going to bother trying to code for Symbian ever again, even if by some miracle it emerges as the leading smartphone OS again. So, I’m sorry (not sorry) that N-Gage won’t support your device, ever!

  4. will this work on x6? Coz i installed n.gage2.0 and residental evil degeneration but the game doesn’t start and screen becomes blank and return to emulator home screen..pls guide me

    1. As I have already mentioned in the post, not all games work on this. Please remember that games that work on the N97 will work perfectly fine on this, provided you have found a way to by pass the issue of mapping keys.

  5. in my 5800 successfully installed the n-
    gage games and then and have disabled
    the RomPatcher patch so that the game
    does not estam open, the more he tries to
    process back again to the start menu of
    the n-gage. Help please!

  6. I just like the valuable information you supply for
    your articles. I’ll bookmark your weblog and check once more right here regularly. I am reasonably certain I will learn many new stuff proper here! Good luck for the following!
