How to Flash Xeon Belle Refresh 111.040.1511 on Nokia N8


1. Download & Install Phoenix from here: N8FanClub.com_PSS_2012.04.003.47798.exe
(Make sure to disable your Anti-virus to avoid Insert Nokia Dongle Error)
Note: This custom firmware package has only English & Italian Languages, if you want to have additional Arabic language in Xeon CFW for Nokia N8, just download the following ROFS2 file and replace it with the ROFS2 firmware file of the above firmware package before proceeding with flashing process. Thanks to Mostafa Abo Elhasan for providing the Arabic ROFS2 for Xeon CFW.

Arabic ROFS2: 

(Note that this firmware is pre-hacked, you are not required to hack / unlock it using Norton Hack)
3. Copy that extracted RM-596 folder in the following folder path:
C:/Program Files/Nokia/Phoenix/Products/RM-596
(If RM-596 folder doesn’t exist, you need to create RM-596 folder yourself and paste the firmware files inside it)
4. Now connect your Nokia N8 in Ovi Suite Mode with USB cable and run Phoenix
5. Goto File and hit Scan Product (wait for some time)
6. Proceed to Flashing and hit Firmware update.
7. Select the firmware product code with three dots (…) (Select: 0599750: euro1_dg_italy) and click OK. (Don’t worry for the product code, it can be any one)

Click to enlarge
8. Now hit the options button, just beneath SW Reset button and a window will appear.
– Delete: RM-596_M005.50.emmc.fpsx as show below
Click to enlarge

9. Now Click either on Refurbish or Software Reset button (For Windows 8 users only Software Reset  button will function) (Refurbish button will just update the firmware and your installed apps on E: will come back gradually, while software reset won’t bring back the apps, you had to re-install all the apps on E:).

Note: The flashing process would start and might ask you to disconnect USB cable and connect it again and slightly push the power button on N8 to initiate flashing Nokia Belle Refresh Custom Firmware. Flashing would hardly take 3 – 5 minutes on an average PC. Enjoy the Nokia Belle Refresh CFW on your Nokia N8 with all new widgets. (The flashing process is similar for every Nokia Belle Device, however you cannot use firmware of one device on any other device)

Languages in this Firmware:
English and Italian, (Arabic also available by ROFS2 replacement as mentioned above)

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: I am using another Belle Refresh CFW (111.040.1511), will I have to downgrade first?
A: If you are using another Belle Refresh CFW based on v111.040.1511 (for instance Diamond Belle  Refresh or PVN’s CFW), you won’t be required to downgrade, just flash this firmware. Even if you are using AminKing v11 till now, you can  simply flash it using the flashing method as mentioned above, no downgrade is required.
Q: I  want to return back to Official Nokia Belle Refresh v111.040.1511, what to do?
A: Just download Official Nokia Belle Refresh Firmware v111.040.1511 from NaviFirm and flash it in the same way with Phoenix.
Q: Can I downgrade this firmware? In case I want to return back to Symbian Anna? 
A: Yes you can downgrade using this downgrade tutorial over here.

Q: My Nokia N8 went dead after following this guide, what to do?

A: First of all, don’t worry, try to Flash your Nokia N8 in DEAD USB Mode. It will be fine.
Q: Will updating to this CFW or Downgrading from CFW to PR 1.0 erase my all data from the phone?
A: NO! Your data would remain preserved in E:/ MASS MEMORY, however backup of your important data is always recommended.
Q: My phone doesn’t scan for music / songs after flashing this CFW? 
A: Place all your music files in E:/Music

Q: Where should I place the custom theme effects after flashing this firmware?
A: Extract your custom theme effects in C:/Animations/effects

    it is written that hero of sparta game is deleted from the new symbian belle. Thats nt through. I flashd my phone twice with the above given symbian bele firmware. And thrice hard resetd my phne wid the code *#7370#. Stil the game occurd in the c:/ drive of my phne. Only 5mb left after installing belle. When i update my nokia store the left over space gets filld up. So admin pls update the firmare removing the stupid trial version of the game (hero of sparta). Or give sme idea of removing the game from the frimware.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/16797431153315020675 Admin

    Jd, here is how you can remove hero of sparta demo from C:

    The first important thing is, you must have the open4all patch from RomPatcher+ On to do this! Then open X-plore and go to C:/sys/bin and delete “heroofsparta.exe” next go to C:/sys/install/sysregistry and delete the folder named “2005649d” next go to C:/sys/hash and delete an another “heroofsparta.exe” next go to C:/private and delete the folder named “2005649d” Next go to C:/resource/apps and delete two files: first is named “heroofsparta_icon.mif” and the other “HeroOfSparta.RSC” and then close X-plore and then the last step: To remove the Sparta Game totally with the icon in the Menu you !MUST! download the Hero of Sparta DEMO from Nokia Store (Make sure to install it on E: Mass storage) and after install, remove it and the icon from menu disappears!

    i’m having a couple of issues with this firmware (i installed it two days back..) first of all, with this firmware, free RAM is only around 75-80MB, while I used to get around 100-110MB of free RAM in the official firmware..and then, sending options, to send a file, i get only the options ‘via message’ and ‘via Bluetooth’. there’s no option to send via e-mail… (for that, I have to go to mailbox and create new mail and include the files)and I cannot change themes. when I select another theme, the processing window shows up, and it stays like that. theme would be applied partially, i.e., some display components would be of Nokia Evolve theme style, and some would take the new appearance.also, changing display orientation takes a lot time..is there currently any other firmware available which I can flash? preferences: I need more than six homescreens.. that’s all..

    Hello, I wan’t upgrade my N8 to Xeon CFW but there’s a one problem. I downloaded all files which is mentioned in this guide and put files into Phoenix folder after installation. But, when I open Phoenix, it doesn’t recognize my phone. Does anyone know what problem is? I tried to reinstall all nokia programs and drivers, then I tried to load without nokia programs, and after all that, I tried to reinstall Phoenix, but nothing. I will be very pleased if someone can solve my problem.
    I appreciate fast answer.

      Better try different version of phoenix from mediafire.com/pss

  • Stefan Knezevic

    Sad news… I tried a couple of versions, the latest one, the oldest one, in the middle, but nothing, no one recognize my phone. When I connect it, Nokia Suite recognize it, so the problem isn’t with my phone or cable, I guess, because when I try in every usb mode, it is working fine, but when I try to connect it to Phoenix, nothing. More help, please? :)

    • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

      The last option is to try dead usb flashing method, as it won’t require to recognize your device first as in normal usb flashing.

    i have already downloaded the xean in three parts…..when m extracting it is asking for password….kindly fix this issue or please give the password for that.

    • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

      Hello, we haven’t placed any password. Which app are you using to extract the firmware archive? Try using WinRAR on your PC to avoid any issues.

      • akku

        7 months before i have downloaded it three parts S4(3.5)-R1, S4(3.5)-R2EN, ….it is asking for password….in my memory….password is http://www.n8fanclub.com, but is not actually…somthing is missing in.

        • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

          Well that was old version and no longer supported. You must download the new version now.

  • Alexx

    Hello admin, i have found big problem with this firmware, beside sound on headphones is soo quiet, there is another problem ! This firmware do not support TRRS 3.5mm jack. In other words WH-701 original headset with microphone or any other for mobile dont work! Only TRS normal stereo headphones with 3.5mm jack work fine. So, is there any solution for this problem, or we who wish to use headset must go back to original belle refresh ?
    Thx !

    • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

      Alexx, for low sound volume, there are volume patches in ROM Patcher, use them. And for headset, I cannot comment at the moment.

      • Sorin Grigoreanu

        insert the jack slowly, i got this error whit an audio box that had iphone jack, always getting device not recognize

  • N8

    Do not flash using A USB 3.0 port on Windows 7 or Phoenix will not recognize your N8. Windows 7 has USB 3.0 compatibility issues. Use a USB 2.0 port and Phoenix will recognize your phone on Windows 7.

  • Mikhail Nazca

    Hi, I have some serious problem with this CFW, when i connect ANY
    headphones sound is silent. I think there is an issue with “Caution Hear
    Damage” function in CFW, it looks like there is no way that phone could
    play louder than 50%, normaly after that on headpohnes you’ve got
    massage dialog box with warning, but I have none… I try many headsets
    and headphones, factory resets etc, nothing works, but after refbrush to
    Orginal Nokia FW, gues what, everything work fine! Please can someone
    fix that I love this CFW…

    • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

      Hi, this is not an issue, there are two sound / volume related patches in ROM Patcher app which will help you to maximize sound volume on Xeon Belle Refresh custom firmware. :)

      • Mikhail Nazca

        Srsly? Thats mean i can just shut off this “feature”?

        • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

          Yes you will get maximum sound volume by applying those ROM Patcher Patches. :)

          • Mikhail Nazca

    After Installing Xenon 3.5.1 Nokia Store is not getting connected to the Internet. Displays message “There was a problem opening this page. It could be a lost connection or a slow network. Check your connection or try again later.” But my internet connection works fine. Please help

    • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

      This is not Xeon’s issue. Nokia is gradually shutting down services for Symbian phones.

    Try entering, 12345 or 00000

    If that doesn’t work, try re-flashing.

  • windv

    hi, just installed your firmware and whanted to know what exactly do you mean when saying on step 9, that after flashing with refurbishing method , the apps will GRADUALLY come back? They are all gone, will they appear later?

    • http://www.n8fanclub.com/ N8FanClub-Admin

      Apps installed on phone memory will disappear and won’t come back. Only apps from memory card and mass storage may restore a bit later.

      • windv

        thanks, i meant exactly the apps from the mass storage memory. will they come back with shortcuts as they were, or i will have to search for them somewhere and add new shortcuts?
