"Belle Feature Pack 3" CFW(!) for the Nokia 808

Published by at

Consider this completely untested (by me), but it may well be of interest to any Nokia 808 owners still playing with various custom firmware and evaluating which is best for them. Dubbed "Belle Feature Pack 3" by its creator, the link and changelog (over the stock Belle FP2) are included. Comments welcome if you get time to try this.

I suppose I should note that the usual caveats apply - if you don't know how to flash custom firmware then don't proceed - and don't blame us if something goes wrong and your 808 is rendered inoperative(!)

But here goes. Compiled by Marcus Nägelle, here is "Feature Pack 3" CFW for the Nokia 808 in English and German:


The changelog over stock Belle FP2 is:

  • editable Equalizer (long click on the sound profile to edit)
