Delight CFW hits the Nokia X7 for the first time

Published by at

The Nokia X7 was a strange beast - initially appearing to be something from Star Trek, complete with warp nacelles, it turned out to be a rather restrictive, style-over-function Symbian^3 phone that appealed to very few. However, with the onward march of Delight CFW (don't worry, the E7 is next!), it has now hit the X7 too, at least giving the device a little extra dignity in its old age. See below...

Another terrific effort from the Delight CFW team. You have to wonder, if two or three people can do all this for so many devices in their spare time over six months, why Nokia's immense resources couldn't manage to get anywhere near in three years?

You'll find the Delight 1.0 for X7 download here, along with any language packs you might need (along with instructions on what to do with them!)
