petergi, 01 Jul 2009so i got it and have to say its a great phone but have some main dissadvatages.first of all yo... moreMy flash when video recording goes on for 2-3 seconds then goes off but when you press record the flash reactivates..So its does work..
Your second question,,
Menu >>settings >>settings>>general >>personalisation >>display >>all your customisation is there.
My settings are below but you choose your own,,the longer you leave backlight it does decrease battery time..
auto brightness>> off
power saving mode>> on
brightness level>> 50%
auto pivot>> off
font size>> small
welcome note/logo>> default
light time out>> 20 seconds
dim time >> 5 seconds
Auto pivot switches off your auto screen rotation so switch on if you use it,,
Do switch auto brightness off as i believe and others that it uses more battery than it saves,,
This is my battery invention to last longer... i fully charge battery,,then leaving charger plugged in i set off a video on repeat direct from real player app..After a while the battery meter starts going up and down as if charging,,which it is..You then keep up this till the battery meter stops wich for me was 9 hrs later ..Then away you go with strong battery..
P.S. best do it over night like i did..
irvinehooi, 01 Jul 2009Hi,
I found out that my INNOV8 having sound syncronisation problem when using video recorde... moreI understand what your saying about edge query,,This answer may be true its a guess..When you have email requests or mms requests it often says Items Will Be Sent On Next Connection ,,i think in your mms or email settings you have to switch an option to,,Send Immedeatly ,,else the email and mms just sit there till some connectivity action occurs and then your connection to edge activates..
So to sum up the above,,go to message settings and set your mms and email settings to send immedeatly..
If that fails are you signed up to any mms alerts cause i am a nd they come in on there own,,it does seem an app is trying to connect somewhere along the line..
The vid/sync issues is happening in the hd recording in i8910 as well,,its a rudy pain and should be solved by now ,it obvious that its recording the audio easily but taking a microsecond longer to record the picture/video but on windows media apps you can adjust this audio sync issue in the applications ,but, i cannot find a media player with this setting for symbian,,yet??
for those doing the firmware upgrade,..........follow the steps EXACTLY as stated in the instructions.
Its getting tiring repeating myself over and over. Its simple if you READ and follow the instructions. Read ALL the posts at that llink. There is a you Tube showing your how also.
Thats all I have to say ...............

Nobita, 01 Jul 2009what firmware version fixes the audio sync issue with the video recorder?none
I have a choice of buying n85, n79 or innov8. Which one is the best??
what firmware version fixes the audio sync issue with the video recorder?
Here is the link to the instructions and downloads
The firmware number upgrade that totally gave me 4 times more battery life was I8510XXIB2.
The apps included in this firmware are Road Sync, Route 66, Asphalt 4, FIFA, Norton Security and a few more.
YTB, 01 Jul 2009Hi, is there a way to backup all the contents of my INNOV8 (all the contacts, notes, SMS...etc... moreYTB
There is a backup function in PC Studio........where you can choose to backup the phone, mem card or both.
also in PC studio click on 'synchronize' to save all your messages and contacts.
You will have to re install all your apps though after the firmware upgrade.
I found out that my INNOV8 having sound syncronisation problem when using video recorder.
After recorded the video the sound doesn't sync to the image. It's seem that the sound playback is a bit faster than image. Did anyone faced this problem ??
Another thing, my firmware version is "I8510DJHI1". May I know that is this the first firmware version for INNOV8 ??
Is it normal ? when I set "Network Mode" to "GSM" only and "Packet Data" set to "When needed" then the INNOV8 should show only an antenna symbol (not 3G or Edge symbol)on top left hand side. But after I received a call, then the antenna symbol has changed to "E" symbol (E should be "Edge" right ?) so which means I'm in "Edge" mode already. So did anyone faced this problem before ??
May be I don't understand the settings or the concept.

Why don't you copy and paste the link like THIS ......its so much easier.
h... moreBecause whatever URL link that user post to this forum will be link to it own site which is "www.gsmarena.com" when user click on the link.
i like the phone, its interface is like nokia n-series os very user friendly.
its like a small computer too. cool rotatable screen. nice 8mp camera. although, i dont like it that the camera doesnt have a protective cover. the lens might get scratched up when not handled properly
Hi, is there a way to backup all the contents of my INNOV8 (all the contacts, notes, SMS...etc) to other place or location before I upgrade the firmware ??
How about the software application that I installed on the phone ?? If I install on the C: drive, ofcourse it will deleted after firmware upgrade but is the software name still appear in the application uninstall list after upgrade the firmware ??
How about the sofware application that I install no the Mass Storage drive, will all of them still working properly after firmware upgrade. Or they will also being deleted after firmware upgrade ??
These are the only concern I worry about.
Can anyone please advice.
