Flashing and backing up Nokia N8 question

Hey all!

Could you please help me?
I bought a used phone from someone, either way, long story short, I don't like the upgrade he did Belle, my night videos are all dark in low light - you cant even figure what ur watching unless you switch to slow motion night mode which is useless for recording out at night. So before I go do any downgrade, could anyone confirm that this degrade of camera is because of belle update? also focusing pictures, for example clouds, the focus never finds them.

and then if all this is because of Belle, I'm a complete newbie to flashing, never did it and reading bricked Nokia n8 discussions make me a little scared, but tell me, what are the chances to brick it if I follow instructions completely? I would do it like it this tutorial is it good enough for a complete newbie?

another question i have before doing it is what about my data, if i make a backup file in nokia pc suite can i then restore it back to my phone after I've done flashing to Anna or would this wreck the OS (as the settingts are from belle and all)? and if so, how can I backup all my data then to then put it back to my phone? sms, music, videos, pictures, applications, everything?

Thanks a lot for your help.

I recommend ..

the tools you need to get hold of are:

Navifirm (if you want to get other firmware)

Phoenix (to do the actual flashing)

the firmware on Xeon's site is very advanced and fast.

there is a highly educated and active forum here:

Good Luck!
