Yesterday Nokia 603 (a Symbian Belle phone) got a firmware update in the form of SW version 111.030.0607. This version of Symbian Belle is also expected to be available for Nokia 700, 701 soon and officially for all older Symbian^3 and Anna phones (Nokia 500, N8, C7, E7 etc) next month (mid-December). However if you can’t wait for that and can take risk of flashing your phone then this one is for you – I have already written a post on this topic some time ago listing some leaked Belle firmwares for Nokia N8. Recently another (and better) Belle firmware has come out with the same SW version as that of Nokia 603 has got (v111.030.607). Interestingly, this Belle firmware is not “N8-exclusive” this time – a Nokia C7 version is also available. This firmware seems to be more “official-looking” than the earlier ones (not pre-hacked, no custom mods etc). Some improvements include – faster boot-up and application launch, new Nokia tune on start-up and more ringtones added to profiles, smoother home-screen transitions etc. So without further delay here are the links for firmware files –
1. Symbian Belle v111.030.0607 Euro3 (171 MB rar file) for Nokia N8 (RM-596) (Thanks to n8fanclub.com)
2. Symbian Belle v111.030.0607 for Nokia C7 (RM-675)

But before you go all out! Please note that –
PHONE FLASHING IS A RISKY PROCESS AND MAY DAMAGE YOUR PHONE FOR GOOD (WHATEVER CARE HAS BEEN TAKEN DURING THE PROCESS). We are not responsible if anything goes wrong.
Ready to take the risk! then go ahead and download the firmware files and follow the flashing instructions given in this tutorial post. Note also that these firmwares are not hacked so follow this post to easily hack the phone after flashing is successful.
After hacking the phone, install Java and EQ fixes in case of N8-firmware (sis file provided in the package). Good luck!!!
