Symbian Belle v111.030.0609 – Nokia N8 – Fixed by Upakul and Danny – Step by Step Flashing Tutorial Guide

Symbian Belle’s latest release v111.030.0609 (Hacked Firmware – Fixed by Upakul and Danny) with completely new widgets is now available for Nokia N8. Its completely awesome with a user interface similar to that of Android. Before you start following this tutorial, we recommend you to have a look at some videos of Nokia N8 running on leaked Symbian Belle and explore the Screen Shots captured on Symbian Belle on Nokia N8.

Taylor released Nokia N8 Symbian Belle RC 111.030.0609. But he couldn’t release the original files. He stated that Nokia didn’t allow him. Many users were demanding Original RC Belle 111.030.0609 without customizations. So Upakul has cleaned Taylor’s rofs2,core and rofs3 and uda and REMOVED all customizations and fixed it back to original.  All mods are removed and all CFW materials are replaced with original Belle files.

Changelog from previous Belle:
Nokia Store and Nokia Maps Working
Photo And Video Editor Working

– New RC Belle 111.030.0609
All new Widgets
– Rename applications in menu (Just hold down any app in menu and you can see rename option which wasn’t there before)
– Removed CFW Customizations present in Taylor’s release
– Added back all original Belle ringtones and wallpapers (in case if you don’t see the wallpapers in gallery, you can get them in Z:\data\images)
– Original Belle effects re-added
– Original Belle theme restored – Nokia Evolve

Few Customizations are present which I think is really important for anyone:

1. Installserver in Z
2. Effects used are original Belle but you can easily switch effects by placing new effects in “C:\resource\effects\” and restarting your device.

Important Note:  All Original Ringtones, Wallpapers and Deleted Apps Installers are available inside the firmware download package below, if you need them, you can install them one by one.
