What, 38% daily interest and no new comments? OK, I have some free time so I'm going to recommend some free apps. While we still have the Nokia Store.
Quick Lock - lock your display by tapping an icon. This is the fastest lock app I found.
Slide To Unlock - unlock the display by sliding or double tapping with two fingers. Sometimes unlocks the phone in your pocket, though.
Tap2Screen - easiest screenshot app. Puts an icon hovering above everything so you just tap on it.
Remind Me - plays a sound you choose every 3, 5 or 10 minutes if you have a missed call or SMS/MMS.
Qcal Nitro - the fastest calculator.
CalQTlator - the best calculator.
NeoReader - free QR Code reader. Works great.
App Stop - you can close some hidden apps you don't need, such as Weather or WRT widgets.
QuickRotate - enable/disable auto screen rotation by tapping an icon.
ClockSync - on demand it synchronizes the clock in your phone with an atomic clock from the internet.
BubbleCompassFree - simple and fast compass.
SCam Free - very cool camera app. You can take photos at 100% quality, motion activated photos, time lapse, exposure bracketing, slow shutter, text, sport. A bit slower interface but it's free. And it has the best zoom ever.
Hope this helps someone.

terjim2, 25 Nov 2013i have been asking for step by step guide to upgrade from anna os to belle refresh os and no ... moreIs update to Belle Refresh available for your N8? I remember Carol wrote step-by-step instructions a few months ago, I found them on page 37 (I thought it was around page 40 so it didn't take too long to find) so I'll just copy-paste them, I hope this helps:
Do a backup of important files and rename it with what ever name you want (don't let the default name) tell you later why.
now factory reset the damn thing. dial *#7370# and follow the instructions (this will format your mass mem, so if it came with apps on it, they are gone). The format will take from 3 to 10 minutes depending on the memory. So let it do it's job until start's up and asks for PIN (if you have one, which i recommend deactivating during the update, just deactivate to spare some seconds and to much THINKING:)) continue with setting up your country and clock and so on. Set the time and date and go on with the start up (set the time and date good, don't pass them (not required, but for safety in case of a phantom or something:)). Now after starts and while loads the widgets. Let it do it's job, just let it 1 or 2 minutes to load all the crap it needs to load. Then open Nokia Suite then plug the phone in USB. Let Nokia suite install it's plugins. This will take something like 30 seconds. No big of a deal. Now (again just to avoid any possible problems, minding you are scared as hell) unplug your device and restart it, let it load to the full, just let it after restart to be secured has loaded everything. Meanwhile, restart your pc to and let that rig load it's system till goes crazy, by the way, you will need to remember what i've said cause we're not gonna open anything besides Nokia suite. After everything is loaded, finally open Nokia Suite and after is fully loaded, plug your n8 in USB and FINALY Hit software update. Follow the instructions, nokia will make an automatic backup of NOTHING, cause your phone is empty, so that is why your original backup has a name of your own so you won't get confused while manually restore. Let Nokia suite do it's job, your phone will go blank and windows will say several times that your device was plugged unplugged trying to install it. Ignore everything what windows says and just follow what Nokia Suite says. Don't touch your device during the update. Don't set anything until Nokia Suite says it has finished (only if you have set the PIN code i told you to deactivate), and installs additional and so on, when Nokia says you can use it. The you can unplug and you can use it. There you go, you are up and done Belle Refresh is in your device:). As addition, Don't install Microsoft office update, they will eat to much of your memory. Update i think are useless and never installed: Colorizeit, Microsoft Apps, New Social, Nokia Music, upload to skydrive. Stop your negative thinking and go ahead.:)
i have been asking for step by step guide to upgrade from anna os to belle refresh os and no one seem to assist. can anyone kindly help out?
sagar, 25 Nov 2013sar my phone is offlinemode Maybe there's something wrong with your SIM card, did you try a different one? Or maybe the SIM card holder is damaged. Who knows, it could be many things... I assume you didn't change the profile to "offline". :-)

Yes, I know weber said support is until 2016 but... Ever heard of nokia store? *hint* *hint*

No comments today? Okay, it's raining here and I was bored so I tried something and now I have a recommendation: I just installed a mod for improved kinetic scrolling. In other words, when you're in Gallery, contacts, messages, files etc, just swipe once and it will keep scrolling until you stop it. When it reaches the end it will bounce like it normally does. So, if you have a lot of contacts, photos, messages or videos and are tired of swiping and swiping to get somewhere, install this on C and reboot. It works on hacked N8 with Belle Refresh, last version.
Anonymous, 22 Nov 2013Hey friends, I've hacked my N8 with nortan. Warranty is over. Now i want to update my cell. So... moreNo issues will happen. Even the Nokia service people don't care about hacking or look for it. Hacking is almost like having an app in your phone such as antivirus or music player.

I just like it fast and efficient and I would get bored from any effects in one hour. :-)
Anybody managed to get leonapapa's emojis working on symbian 3 devices?
I had them on my n78 but won't show up on 3rd party sis apps, only blank spaces. And some emoji crashes java apps.
Check it out guys, I have never known that N8 could be so blazing fast and smooth with these AWESOME THEMES EFFECTS. What do you think ?

First of all, do you have belle refresh? If yes then: All you have to do is: enter in rompatcher and activate Open4All RP+ (if it activates good it should turn green). Now open x-plore and enter in c:/sys/bin. Look for "installserver.exe" and delete it (if there is any or if you pasted there any when you hacked it). Now take the ynstallserver.exe file i gave you in the zip archive and paste it in the exact same folder [c:/sys/bin]. Now enter: c:/patches and delete the install server patcher. Copy and paste the one i gave you in the archive "Install Server 1.7 RP+.rmp". Now exit x-plore enter rompatcher. Deactivate Open4All and activate Install Server 1.7 RP+.rmp. Now everything should install.
