Upgrading your Symbian ^3 or Anna Phone to Symbian Belle

Symbian Belle is now available to almost all Symbian ^3 and Symbian Anna phones like Nokia N8, E7, X7, C6-01 and others. There are two ways to get this done: the official way which isn’t risky and the unofficial way which allows you to modify your firmware before updating.With the unofficial method, you’ll need to flash your phone with a Symbian Belle firmware. I explained all about flashing your Nokia on this post and even more on the post I wrote earlier on upgrading Symbian ^3 to Symbian Anna

I’m gonna try to explain both methods in this post but I’ll always recommend the official method of upgrading. It’s less risky and there’s only a slim chance you’ll brick your phone.

Upgrading from Symbian Anna to Symbian Belle Using Ovi Suite

Like I mentioned, this is the most convenient way to upgrade your phone and it’s quite safe, provided everything went right. Before proceeding, you should be sure you have a stable internet connection that won’t be interrupted  no matter what as this may brick your phone. A 3G or wi-fi connection is recommended.

1. Download the latest version of Nokia Ovi Suite

2. Install the software, connect your phone and fire up Ovi Suite.

3. Search for your phone update:

Back up and everything should be done automatically and this should take about one hour.

Like I mentioned earlier, this method isn’t the best and I do not recommend it for certain reasons:

1. It’s not the latest Symbian Beller OS version

2. Flashing your phone can be risky

However, to get a better understanding of using this method, you should read my post on how to flash nokia phones using USB cable. Going through my guide on upgrading Symbian ^3 to Anna will also be of great help since all the screenshots you need are all there.

3- http://www.mediafire.com/?ldw0e7wlxmdel63 –  rofs2

If any of the files require a password, use orvvan + mohamad 79

You can as well download the file as a single one from this link – http://www.mediafire.com/?zr6csfhpcrbu7su

If you want to perform a permanent hacking by flashing, you can use this rofs2 with installserver.exe added – http://www.mediafire.com/?hn3dx9aeyb2n389.

I’ll advise you use the first method which is quite safe and if you need to hack your symbian belle phone without flashing, you can go through this post.
