[Tutorial] Downgrade your Nokia N8 to any firmware version
« on: February 11, 2012, 04:17:34 PM »
With the help of this tutorial, you will be able to downgrade to any lower version!
Example, if you are on Anna, you can go back to PR 1.0 and if you are on Belle, you can go back to Anna and PR 1.0 ir any firmware of your choice!

1. Download scandinavian dg 11.5 firmware from navifirm quality assurance server or HERE
2. Hardreset your Nokia N8 by entering *#7370# in your numpad (THis will delete all data in E:\ and C:\ of your N8)
3. Load scandinavian firmware into pheonix and flash
4. Now just flash the normal way your firmware as long as it's not lower than 11.5!

You need to flash your phone twice!
1. 1st flash to "scandinavian dg 11.5"
2. Then flash to the firmware of your choice! (download it via Navifirm)

Successful,  thx.  For me I had to disconnect when programming was complete on the first flash pass, then let it finish on the anna flash.  FYI I used Anna 25.8 North American Variant Dark Grey for my final OS, never to be changed again  :)  Belle was imho a pos.

Nokia have locked their servers.
So basically no-one can use navifirm anymore
