I need to Upgrade my Nokia N8 to Bella Refresh
« on: January 07, 2022, 03:42:32 am »
Hello, I've found a brand new N8 in phone shop, but the phone has a lot of expired things and so slow. I'm trying to upgrade to the latest symbian version. I found the information about bella refresh version is the latest one.

I found some flash files and I need phoenix software. Maybe I downloaded from 20 different source but all giving trojan warning with chrome and windows. Anybody have a clean version of this flashing software or an alternative solution?

Your browser will naturally give a false warning for exe files it doesn't recognise, try the Delight cfw website hopefully the software is on there still.

Hi, yes I found the firmware but my problem is the firmware uploader software. I've tried to download the phoenix uploader and whatever I downloaded were fully virus/torjan. Do you know any clean source to download this software?

They won't actually have a virus, any anti virus software will flag it automatically as a precaution.

 Try this one maybe: http://www.mediafire.com/file/9oycrax953py926/phoenix_service_software_2012.50.001.49220.rar/file

Hello, the file isn't available in the link. Please let me tell what I need maybe you've all the items.

I've a N8-00
Release: PR1.0
Software Version: 011.012
Software Version Date: 2010-09-18
Custom Version: 014.002.C15.01
Product Code: 059C3P1
Type: RM-596
Flash Version: 4.0

I like to use this device but it's so slow. There is no anything even installed but still slow. I thought maybe the software update can make it faster this is why I'm trying to update.

I need that the applications needed to this update, I've no knowledge about Symbian, there is long time went last time I used a Symbian phone.
I see the the firmware uploader application needed and the firmware files. Can you please share it if you've clean version of those files. Whatever I found on internet they were all look dangerous apps even I formatted two computer because couldn't be sure.

Thanks.

Hi there,

Please read carefully the following points:

1) If your phone is already slow on PR1.0, I would not consider upgrading to Belle. What you can do is to upgrade PR1.0 to Anna. Switching to Belle will make your phone even slower! But, finding Anna firmware may be very uneasy these days...

2) If you want to flash N8, you need Phoenix 2012.04 version (https://app.box.com/s/a6w29u47wdyapq3tgqwq2bkgeg9us0zh). As you have neither a flashbox nor a dongle, you have to download the version which I call "Special package by Seidea". Highly likely it will be detected as a virus/malware, but this is not because there is real malware inside. No, it is because this version (as well as all other free Phoenix versions) was repacked and an activator was included in the EXE package, which is triggered by various antiviruses as a false positive.

3) Don't trust Chrome browser, it scolds that you have downloaded a virus every second time :)
There was no need to format your computers, of course.

4) If you do not trust Phoenix, you can grab Nokia CareSuite (https://magentacloud.de/s/WJddkZ5WDrm9iow). This EXE file is directly from Nokia, and unlike Phoenix, original Nokia CareSuite does not require the flashbox.

I hope this piece of information helps.
