A lot of Nokia N8 users who had a problem with their device did a hard reset, and they lost many pre-loaded contents, including photos, videos like the TRON: Legacy trailers, widgets, and applications. They ended up going to Nokia Care Center for a reprogram in which they are required to leave the device for almost a week. Well, you don't have to leave your precious Nokia N8 at NCC. We have a method on how to reprogram - or reflash - your Nokia N8. Just download the PDF file below for the instructions.

All you need is a common sense, follow instructions carefully and you're good to go! :)

This guide can be also done with other Symbian^3 device.
