Anonymous, 25 Jul 2013why do u hack? I mean i havent done this obviously but i wana ask wat benefit do we get? If so... moreHow do you get it laminated? Sounds cool.
As for hacking, it's not harmful and it can be simply undone like it never existed. People do it for different reasons...
1. To be able to install unsigned apps (unofficial, not available at Nokia Store, apps for older Symbian models, pirated apps, apps and themes with expired certificate etc).
2. To get full access to system files - some need it for modding (you can change, for example, things that themes don't change, such as battery or signal indicators, then you can change theme effects, tweak some settings etc) and some need it to clean junk files from the phone and get more free memory.
I'm protecting my N8 too, I don't have money to buy another one and they don't make them any more. :-) Today I played with an iPhone (jailbroken, with quite a few apps in it) and after 10 minutes I was so annoyed with its design, uselessness and simplicity that I wanted to kiss my N8. :-D
Anonymous, 23 Jul 2013help, which anti virus is best 4 n8? netqin mobile security. can be downloaded from nokia store.
why do u hack? I mean i havent done this obviously but i wana ask wat benefit do we get? If some new applications cn b installed den what kinda applications are those?

schroede, 25 Jul 2013can i wacth any movie format on this n8 without woring about the small processorMost formats, yes. It can record HD video so it can play it too, the GPU is quite powerful (some say better than iPhone 4). So far it plays all I tried but .flv opens with built in Real Player instead of the default video player.

Im using this nice, beautiful N8 for 6mos and i love the UI of Belle refresh. Whoever uses this smartphone knows it.
I just hacked/jailbroke my N8 to install some xpired or unsigned usefull apps. It's just awsome to have this. A Big PLUS is the 12MP Zeiss cam sensor that can beat some of todays smartphone and digicams.
I love Nokia!

Anonymous, 23 Jul 2013may b it dznt read the new diversions of the roads but the othet day i went to ludhiana(india)... moreI'm sure the voice navigation is generally good (especially for big, heavy traffic countries) - and I did not expect much for a tiny speck in the ocean so I got exactly what I expected - did not expect the cemetery though:-) Major locations are correct but fine details are lacking. It would not be something I would advise visitors to use though. I hardly think that the map was updated. I think Venezuela next door would be pretty accurate though. At least I know that feature is working!
I have also N8.
I had to do several times the hard reset to make it my phone just right ,and after all upgrades I have only 62MB left on my C memory.
Read the article on allaboutsimbian.com called "pimping my N8" you'll find all answers regarding setting just right your N8
i have this phone for 2,5 years and it's great.
best mobile camera and best gps ever. I'm going to switch to 920. hope it holds the standards.
n8-best phone i ever had
may b it dznt read the new diversions of the roads but the othet day i went to ludhiana(india) n the voice guidance was correct..i wud say 95%correct..its gud

Oh boy! I tried out voice navigation today and it was a real comedy. It eve... moreThere's not much to mess up with upgrading to Belle really. If you have wi-fi just go to SW update and see if it's available and basically you just download, wait, wait some more and restart phone. I'd do it rather sooner than later, before you have too many apps, photos, contacts etc. Also, install Nokia Suite on your PC, if you haven't. It will guide you step by step and you just have to blindly follow. :-) So I'd recommend doing a back-up of important stuff via Nokia Suite first, also you can upgrade to Belle while at it, and then restore your backups.
Heh, I guess the maps aren't always totally accurate but hey, Facebook uses Nokia Maps too. If you were using Apple maps there's a chance that not even your island would be in them. Things like that actually happened. :-D
