HowTo downgrade from Leaked/Unofficial Belle to Official Nokia Belle Update

I've said this before and I'll say it again; Patience isn't my virtue, so when the versions of Belle leaked, I was one of many Nokia users who installed these leaked versions.

Well as you already know, Belle is now available, even the US which is known for getting the updates 3months after he rest of the world has, got it on the very first day, which is impressive!
Now everything is right with the world...

So if you are like me, then you probably have had a leaked belle on your phone for the last 6months!

here's a quick step guide to get the original firmware update:

what you will need (but you already have, since you installed leaked belle in the first place)

  • Phoenix Service Software (download it here)
  • Scandinavian DG firmware (get it from Navifirm: example; choose Quality Assurance > N8 > 11.5 > Scandinavian DG 0598984)
  • v25.008 (which is the latest Symbian Anna Firmware, get also from navifirm)

copy the Scandinavian DG 0598984 firmware into C:\Program Files\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\RM-596 (NOTE if you have a 64bit Operating system, the path will be C:\Program Files x86\Nokia\Phoenix\Products\RM-596)

First step: Use Phoenix to REFURBISH your phone with the Scandinavian DG 0598984.

Second Step:  remove/delete the Scandinavian DG 0598984 from STEP 1 and replace/copy v25.008 into that same folder (RM 596)

Third Step: Use Phoenix to REFURBISH your phone with the v25.008 version

now you can connect your N8 to your nokia suite and update it with Nokia Belle (if its available in your region)
and that's it, that's how i switched from leaked belle to official version IN 3 EASY STEPS. took me about 20mins


there are different ways of doing this, there is no offical method.
this is what worked for me, if it doesn't work for you, you can google it and find different methods!
This method isn't for noobs!
also this is for Nokia N8, if you use any other symbian device, you should get the picture.

if you get stuck, feel free to ask me for help on anything, I'll be here all week :)
