How to overclock, enhance & boost Nokia N8’s CPU, GPU and make more RAM available for Running Applications?

We are aware of the fact that Nokia N8 is getting older, but still we love it the most. Today there are even octa core smartphones available in the market, but our Nokia N8 still serves us much better in terms of its routine usage, best hardware, awesome communication features, best camera and even great battery life. Therefore many of us are have a mindset that we won’t be selling our Nokia N8 ever. 
By regularly installing applications, themes and games on smartphones, junk files are also being created. In order to keep our Nokia N8 speedy and quick enough to keep us serving, we need to tweak & follow some steps that will boost up Nokia N8’s performance. These tweaks will help to overclock / enhance CPU, GPU and even make more RAM available for your Nokia N8. Though you will need to jailbreak your Nokia N8 to apply these tweaks.

Before and after applying this tutorial you can use GlBenchmark App to monitor the results. 

  1. Jailbreak Nokia N8 with Norton Unlock Hack
  2. Run ROM Patcher and Enable OPEN4ALL Patch.
  3. Copy the Private folder to C:/ Phone Memory and replace any files, if prompted.
  4. Copy the Patches Folder to E:/ Mass Storage
  5. Now Apply OverClock_CPU_Nokia_Belle.rmp Patch from ROM Patcher and add it to auto from options.
  6. Restart your Phone to observe boosted performance of your Nokia N8.

        Hi N8FanClub-Admin.
        I have got the files and I have got a Nokia N8 Belle Refresh hacked by NortonSymbianHackLDD with RomPatcherPlus_3.1

        – Is it sure do this overclock ??
        – Could my N8 has any failures if I do it ??
        – I have a Patches folder in C: Phone Memory that contains Rompatcher’s patches (Install Server 1.7 RP+.rmp, Install Server RP+.rmp and Open4All RP+.rmp). Should I paste your Patches folder in E: Mass Memory ??
        – Are you using this oveclock on your N8 ??
        – How it works ??
        – Please, reply me when you can.
        Thanks 🙂

        Hi installed this mod, but after restart my N8, just I can see one patch at Rompatcher app and I can’t active the other patches, so I must install your patch in C.Patches where I have the other 3 patches on my N8 hack. I think my Norton method is different like yours.

      • Pepe Chotuno

        Since 3 days that I’m using this mod I think it “drinks” my N8 battery, doesn’t it ???

    “3. Copy the Private folder to C:/ Phone Memory and replace any files, if prompted.

    4. Copy the Patches Folder to E:/ Mass Storage ”

    This is so confusing. In the number 3. From what drive should I find the Private folder? And what from what drive should I find the Patches folder?

    Next time, make a clear steps -_-

    • Its a common sense that you have to download the zip archive and place it as mentioned. Steps are very clear though.

      • Pepe Chotuno

        I have a Patches folder from Rompatcher in C due to my Norton Hack, so I think I must paste this patch into that folder, because if I create a new folder in E, I can’t see the other three patches that I have them.

        • Yes that’s right. Or you can move your all patches folder from C: to E:

    Dear Admin,

    The above step is really very confusing as my E:Drive Private folder is of 3.5Gb and free space in C;Drive is just 2Mb how is it possible to move tht file to C;Drive, can u please make it more simpler and explain it as my N8 is already jail broken so suggest accoringly.

    • Well you only need to copy private folder from downloaded file to C:/ drive. Hope it helps 🙂

    Is this available for all symbian belle?

    How could I know if this truly work?

    • This is only for Nokia N8, you will feel the speed difference, although its minor.

      • Jensen Louise Lim

        how about E7? Is it available?

        • Sorry, this only works with Nokia N8. For any other device, this tweak isn’t available at the moment.

  • Aros122

    I istalled this and apps was faster, but when I close it everything have lags

  • Jensen Louise Lim

    Here’s another tips guy
    We can boost our Symbian phone using Netqin Anti virus app.
    first of all u need to install it here in n8fanclub site
    after the installation of the app. Go to settings>> Theme>> General>> then off the Theme effect for a while. Then after that go to netqin app>> system optimization>> then click Optimize. Probably 3 or 4 times. Then close the netqin app.
    After that restart ur phone using restarting application. Note do not turn off ur device just restart it using some apps. Then after it boot, just w8 while its loading for more apps like clock or calendar ( u can monitor it using the multi tasker button). Then booooommm!!!!! ur phone speed up so much. Try to play now the Speedx or any games, and see the difference.
    U can now on ur theme effect after that.
