Delight CFW hits *some* Nokia C6-01 handsets

Published by at

If you have an ageing Nokia C6-01 and fancy getting in on the Delight custom firmware action then you may (or may not) be in luck. There's now a build for C6-01s with product code RM-718 - other C6-01s have product code RM-601 and slightly different internals, but the Delight CFW creators say that this will get some firmware love too in due course.

As usual with custom firmwares, there are a few caveats that we have to get through:

  • if it all goes pearshaped (unlikely, but....) then don't blame us
  • if this is your first time flashing custom firmware and you don't really know what you're doing then allow an hour or two to take it slow and learn as you go
  • if this is your device's first brush with Delight CFW then you'll have to 'refurbish' its firmware (rather than 'update'), meaning that the device will be wiped - a perfect time to test your backup regime and to make sure you have all your passwords, themes and installers to hand?
  • if, after reading the first three caveats, you're having doubts then maybe custom firmware isn't for you!

The benefits of Delight custom firmware are obvious though - more system disk space (a lot more), more free RAM, less bloat generally, all patches and updates already in place, the ability to install even 'unsigned' applications (especially important now that the main Nokia Store is frozen), plus more customisable UI components than you could ever imagine. All laid out and ready to roll with one update, one download.

Now, a chatty tutorial on flashing your first custom firmware is still on my to-do list, but in the meantime, Eric's official tutorial is still the best place to start.
