The N8 doesn't have a LCD screen, it has an AMOLED screen.
If you have noticed a flicker on the screen then maybe it has developed a fault.
Take it to a Nokia Care Point, and have an expert look at it.
All the best.

You will not lose any data if you install this update.
However, make sure your phone is regularly backed up by using Ovi Suite, as there is always the tiniest risk involved when updating the phone ( such as a connection interrupt ).
Hope that helps.

I would imagine the difficulty your facing is due to server overload. That's why Ovi suite and OTA isn't working for you yet. Not sure why Nokia Software Updater isn't loading for you though. Maybe you could try un-installing it and then re-installing it.
If you have the time, keep checking via Ovi suite or Nokia Software Updater( if you can get it working ) periodically and you may get lucky.
Incidentally, the N8 will only let you use SW Updater on the phone once a day, that's why I recommended Nokia Software Updater via the P.C.. That lets you check as many times as you like.
Sorry I couldn't have been more help.
Best of luck.
Symbian will still continue to receive software updates for the next 3 years or so. All the promised updates: portrait QWERTY keyboard, new browser, 50 new UI features, new GUI, PR2.0, PR3.0, will all still be released.
Moha, 16 Feb 2011Ray,
Is that published or yet to publish ? @Moha.
That list still stands. Those that are in creation are still in creation. Don't worry, just a couple of days to go.

I am disapointed with N8. I wait this phone 5 month, now i wait some inporntant updates 4 months. No QWERTY, Stupid Media player, IExplorer suck! Wait for Samsung galaxy II.
raj_MY, 16 Feb 2011N8 vs C7.which phone is better?the 2 phones are the same just take the cheaper.
do u guys ever wonder why samsung left symbian even when the future of android was uncertain, easy because nokia was the symbian giant taking all the profits. Today samsung is the android giant and you expect Nokia to join ship. that crazy. Who is the windows mobile giant ,YES noone, and nokia will take the position.
Ray Hipkiss, 15 Feb 2011 Short answer, NO. The N8's hardware isn't capable of running Windows Phone 7. RayHi Ray, look, I've got the update for my phone, I can confirm it in nokia site, but I cant update via OTA, says - no updates available. Ovi suite not connecting to server or comes with error - 10212 or something while updating. Software updater is not working as well some how, while trying to lounch it, says - settings error or something like that. Veird thing. Tried lots of things to be honnest. Thanks.
