Are you sure that is an OTA bitmap? it doesn't have the correct header bytes for an OTA bitmap.

How did you create the file? Is it perhaps a standard bitmap (BMP) file?

I just did a test, and I can see that the file is in fact a standard monochrome BMP file. The Nokia OTA Bitmap format is something different.

Download a copy of the ImageMagick libraries at ImageMagick.com, and the "convert" utility in the binaries can convert from a standard BMP to an OTA Bitmap file pretty easily.

Just run:

CONVERT filename.bmp filename.otb

The ".otb" file will be the OTA bitmap data.

Then you can use hex2file to convert it to a hex string.

If you follow this procedure, you should end up with the following data for your example above:


I tried sending that out to my phone, and it worked fine.
