Delight 808 version 1.1 custom firmware available

Published by at

You'll remember that we had Delight 808, the first stable, recommended custom firmware for the Nokia 808 PureView a few weeks ago? While it's still perhaps a bit early (given that many 808s will still be in warranty) to recommend that the majority try this out, I know that many users have and have been pleased with the results. Version 1.1 of the Delight 808 custom firmware is now out, mainly a roundup update, fixing a lot of small updates and patches. More details below.

From the Delight blog post, comes the changelog (don't worry if most of the items don't make sense to the casual reader):

Happily, it seems that you won't lose your installed apps, data and setup when updating from Delight 808 v1.0. You still need to use Phoenix to flash the firmware on, but you can use 'Update Software' and 'without UDA', essentially updating the firmware in place, though as ever it's best to have data synced and backed up just in case. Having updated in place, you then need to run the supplied 'Updater' application from the Symbian menu, selecting 'v1.1', to finish off the upgrade.

If you haven't already got Delight 808 custom firmware, then you'll have to do the full 'Refurbish' from Phoenix, which will wipe everything from your Nokia 808, so there's more work for you to do in getting data and apps back.

As usual with custom firmwares, be careful and make sure you know what you're doing. Flashing such firmwares is inherently risky and you may render your phone inoperable. And it goes without saying that you'll void any remaining warranty.
