How to Flash Symbian Belle to Nokia N8?

Category: Mobile Phones,Nokia,Symbianksg91 @ 1:00 pm

As I mentioned in my previous blog posts, Symbian Belle for Nokia N8 appeared on Navifirm and I flashed it to my Nokia N8. And then Symbian Belle official release was delayed to Q1 2012 as mentioned  here and people are almost frustrated because of so much delay. Everybody out there want to try Symbian Belle but some don;t know how to do it and some are afraid to brick their phone. I got several request for explaining how to flash Belle to Nokia N8 on twitter ( @ksg91 )  and  explaining this in 140 char is almost impossible. So, as promised, I am writing this post on how to flash Nokia N8.

Symbian Belle Not Coming in Q4 2011? – Update

Category: Mobile Phones,Nokia,Symbianksg91 @ 3:35 pm

Its been long enough since Nokia announced Symbian Belle and started shipping few Symbian Belle devices, all existing Symbian Anna users are waiting eagerly and losing their patience for receiving Symbian Belle for their phones. Nokia promised to release Symbian Belle to all Symbian Anna devices in Q4 of 2011. Symbian Belle for N8 already made an appearance at Navifirm for a while and still there is no sign of Symbian Belle officially.

Yesterday, in reply to @vivekkl ‘s question for release date of  Symbian Belle for N8, @nokia replied “coming months” .


I have already asked @nokia and @NokiaHelps personally serveral time and up till now they were saying it will come before the last week of Dec ends! Sudden change in release plan? This may be very disappointing. However this is not first time any release is delayed, just remember the delay in Symbian Anna. Well, we may have the same fate for Symbian Belle also.  It is also being guessed that release is postponed because of some testing. Some rumors says it will come to Thailand in Feb 2012. Whatever the reason maybe, but this delay is surely going to affect the interest of users.

One thing I will like to say to Nokia is, no doubt, you take great stuff  but you are late to bring it to the market and lose the interest of customers. I think, Nokia seriously need to consider this thing.

Many N8 users have already lost their patience (including me) and already running Symbian Belle leaked from Navifirm. And this leak runs pretty fast and with almost no bug! Still we crave for official release because official is official! :P

Now, this looks a like, Symbian Belle is not really coming this month. It has been postponed for some reason.

If you got any news about this, please let me know. :)

Symbian Belle got some Bug?

Category: bug,Mobile Phones,Nokia,Symbianksg91 @ 11:49 pm

Symbian Belle for Nokia N8 appeared for sometime on Navifirm and some users managed to download it and uploaded to  file hosting sites as I mentioned here , I, losing all the patience, flashed it to my N8. It is said to be official Firmware for T-Mobile. How ever I encountered some bug / malfunctioning of this.

Last night, I installed Gravity and Swype only. But in the morning, when I tried to open Gravity from Homescreen, shortcut wasn’t responding. I thought to open from menu but encountered error: “Homescreen: Application can not be run because of security reason”. After all this, I thought to restart my phone (a standard method to solve issue in Symbian ;) ). After phone started, I couldn’t find Gravity or Swype in my phone, they were gone! I downloaded Gravity again and installed. After installation, when I started Gravity, my all accounts I added previously was there! This is strange, because if application existed, I would have been asked to overwrite it! However, old data was still there!

I was still not sure if this happened just to me, but a twitter user @TKay_88 also said he faced same thing on his Symbian Belle for N8! I won’t consider this to be a serious issue and comparing to the fun of Belle, I can surely ignore it.

Apart from this, I have not found any issue with Belle. Phone has become amazingly fast and new UI is awesome! I must say, I am in love with Symbian Belle! :)

Did you guys find any problem with your phone? Do share here. :)

Symbian Belle for N8 appears on Navifirm – Updated

Category: Mobile Phones,Nokia,Symbianksg91 @ 7:27 pm

As the rumors were saying Symbian Belle for N8 should be releasing on week 48 and I predicted it to be released on 29th on one of my tweets. Well, this prediction turned true to some extent. Today, Symbian Belle (v 111..030.0607) for Nokia N8 (RM-596) appeared in Navifirm, reported by many users and blogs. However I was busy giving my exam (>_>)

Currently, only Quality Assurance server is responding but it is not showing Symbian Belle. Remaining two servers are not responding.

It is being said that Symbian Belle is pulled back from for the server. Reason may be, Nokia don’t want to lose the attention from their Nokia Lumia phones. Whatever the reason maybe, but one thing we can be assured about is, we are going to get update OTA soon. Let’s see how long it takes.

One of the member of  DailyMobile Forums managed to download all the files and they are uploaded to . You can download them if you are impatient. ;)



Finally. Product External server is responding in Navifirm and showing 111.030.607 update for N8 but no variant! So, Symbian Belle update is pulled from public view. Let’s see, how long they keep it like this.

New Nokia Store

Category: Mobile Phones,Nokia,Symbianksg91 @ 4:17 pm

After Nokia announcing dropping of Ovi branding, you will have seen Ovi being dropped gradually, first social accounts then website etc, and finally Ovi Store is going to be replaced by Nokia Store.

Before Nokia Store is pushed as Software Update, Nokia has given its sneak peak to its betalab testers.

Nokia said on Betalabs:

We are offering members of the Nokia Beta Labs community a preview of the new Store client.  Please help us in testing it before it is deployed in a software update.

This beta Store client will replace the current Store client on your Symbian^3 or Symbian Anna device, and it supports nearly all of the features as the official Store client (Web Runtime).  The key new features this client brings include:

  • Easier navigation
  • Improved product details view, for a rich and fluid discovery experience
  • Quicker, smoother and more responsive than WRT client


This new Nokia Store has Symbian Belle look. You can see that Belle style Status Bar and Toolbar at bottom.  New store is made using QML components. Looks is quite stylish and smoother experience. Now there is no more blank tables when apps are being loaded but it is replaced by a rotating animation.

Well, seeing all these updates coming soon, I can say, we, N8 and first batch of S^3 devices, are getting Symbian Belle soon. :D
