  • Hi to all! My phone is Nokia C7 Belle (111.030.0609) by Taylor. I see this update, but when I download over the air, don´t installed, because not compatible with my phone!!! 😀 (Sorry, I don´t speak english)

  • Did they tweak the processor speed of the first gen devices as they did in the case of second gen devices..i heard these devices which came with a 680mhz ARM is actually capable of clocking a 1ghz comfortably( same processor is tweaked to 800mhz – 1ghz in some android devices) would have improved the overall user experience like the 1.3ghz 701 handling belle beautifully..

  • is this firmware better than aminking modded firmware

  • The easy way to update your Nokia Device to Symbian Belle Refresh is via OTA. It’s pretty work and spends around 5 to 10 minutes depend on your Network. After it downloads finish we are going to check for the latest apps for our device. That’s it, enjoy your Symbian Belle Refresh.

  • i just installed the refresh update a few hours ago. I suspected something wrong when i noticed jinhao effects not working. Already installed unsigned apps still working well except for the 3 angry birds which kept interchanging with each other, i.e angry birds seasons open when i try to open angry birds rio. Norton Hack no longer works since i couldn’t install any unsigned app. Certificate error always pops up. Tried to hack it again with norton but says files already exists. What can be done. I’m starting to hate my n8 belle inspite of the nice updates.

    what i nead to do,i never have try to flash it,and i don’t wont to do that

  • i have n8  with sw version 111.030.0609, i bought it from france and i didn’t get  belle refresh update in my phone or in the nokia suite and i have checked the navifirm to get update but i cant find my mobile product code there………how to update now?

    • Please be patient you’ll surely get the update. If your phone has custom operator stuff, that might require your operator’s approval. Else you can try flashing it. Download latest firmware of any product code from NaviFirm and Flash it with Phoenix. (Risky stuff, if you are a newbie)

    any help about that?

    Weird Al! My Nokia N8 update shows the Shekel Symbol where it had the Palestinian Currency Symbol earlier……. Hmmm I’m not trashing my phone yet in my love for the Kingdom of Zionistan or God yet…I’m gonna keep it in memory of the thousands of Palestinians who Israhell murders everyday…..the only symbol these shitholes could send is the symbol of their real Gawd “money” to my phone.
