(You also can find a copy of this FAQ inside of your DelightApp, but it might be older than this version.)
What version of firmware should I have on my phone to flash your latest Delight custom firmware?
As this firmware has all needed files we need, you can simply flash to it without worrying about your current firmware.
Can I flash with any other firmware cooker’s custom firmware if I want after I flash with yours or the original?
Yes, of course you can. But you have to Refurbish because of the partitioning, else your phone won't boot up!
I tried to install a .sis(x) file, but it only shows a file corrupted error, what to do now?
Open ROMPatcher+ and disable ReadCRoot and UnlockFilemanager(No_D), than try it again.
Most of my widgets are semi-transparent form, I don't like them. How can I get back my default widgets back?
Check Delight App -> Extras -> Selector -> Choose Widget Skins
The maximum volume of your Custom Firmware seems to stop at 60% , how to fix it?
Check Menu, Tools, ROMPatcher.
There's an entry which reads "HighLevelVolumeFix". Tap on it twice until a green checkmark appears next to it. Now go to ROMPatcher menu and enable "Add to Auto", else you have to repeat it after every reboot.
The minimum volume of your Custom Firmware seems to be a bit high, how to reduce it?
Check Menu, Tools, ROMPatcher.
There's an entry which reads "MoreSoundInLoudspeaker". Tap on it twice until a green checkmark appears next to it. Now go to ROMPatcher menu and enable "Add to Auto", else you have to repeat it after every reboot. As the name reads this will also boost the volume of your loudspeaker.
I changed my Home Screen wallpaper and now I lost the default wallpaper you included in your custom firmware, I really liked it and want to set it again as wallpaper in one of my Home Screen but I can’t find it. Where is it?
You can find the file in Z:\data\Backgrounds\Delight.jpg. You do need a third party file explorer like LCG X-plore to explore this area or enable the patch UnlockFilemanger(no_D) in ROMPatcher and use default Filemanager.
I really don’t like your startup animation or startup sound. How can I set my own animation and sound?
You just need to put your own animation as startup.gif in C:\data\animations\ and your startup tone as startup.mp3 in C:\data\animations\ and replace with Delight's. (You also can add shutdown.mp3 and shutdown.gif). For startup/shutdown sound you have to enable warning tones in your active profile.
I don't like the transition effects included, how can I remove them or change them?
Set Theme effects off first via Menu-> Tools-> Settings-> Themes-> General-> Theme effects-> Off. Delete E:\effects\ contents and put your own effects files in there. Now re-enable Theme effects.
Music player doesn't work, it shows a memory full error, but I have free space on all drives. Also the profile settings can't find any ringtones.
Disable the patch UnlockFilemanger(No_D) in ROMPatcher + and retry, if it still doesn't work reboot your phone.
My music is not detected by music player, what should I do?
Since there is a music mod included in my version, you need to put all your music files in E:\Music or F:\Music. Few members requested me to include other folders too in this mod but sorry to all I can’t. I feel this is the best way to make searching fast and smooth. You can always cut and paste your music files in here.
I don't like the included fonts, how can I put my own font without flashing?
First of all enable Open4All in ROMPatcher, otherwise you can't write into \resource\.
Then make 6 copies of your font named as nosnr60, nssb60, nstsb60, S60SC_C, S60TCHK_C, S60ZDIGI. Now make a new folder in C:\resource\ as fonts and put all these files in there. Visit C:\private\ and delete 10003a16 folder, restart your phone. Now if you want to get back your original fonts simply rename C:\resource\fonts\ folder to something else like afonts and restart your phone. If it’s giving you any error, then make sure you don’t have any apps running in background using that font. If even that won’t help then remove as many individual files you can and then restart and remove the remaining files. Your default fonts will be back finally. If this solution won’t work at all, then there is no way and there is no need to put your question in Delight thread, simple flashing will be the only way out or put your question in proper section as a new thread.
XYZ app is not working in my phone, what should I do?
We don’t give support for any individual app unless we are not pretty sure that the particular app is not working in only this custom firmware, you have to read all threads related to apps compatibility and if the app’s not there, flash with latest original Belle and then try the app there, if app works then PM us the app name about the proper bug and we will try to rectify that as soon as possible in next update. And we don't support warez or illegal apps.
What’s so special about this installserver mod you included in your custom firmware by CODeRUS?
Apart from that it allows you to install all the unsigned apps + removes the comonent inbuild error.
If you create a dir !:\installserver\ it will copy the content of every .sis(x) into it
If you create a new file "installserver.log" inside of this folder installserver will copy every .sis which gets installed into the folder (useful for backups).
I want other writing/UI languages also other than English, what should I do?
Flash with provided ROFS2/ROFS3 with writing/UI languages by freaxs_r_us.
Check Change logs section on our blog n8delight.blogspot.com for more info. Else wait for a translated version...
I am not able to connect to my PC in USB mode?
Make sure you don't have UnlockFilemanger(No_D) and Open4All patch activated in Rompatcher, disable them and you will be able to connect.
I am not able to install Qt apps which I have downloaded from net and it’s showing me download error?
Usually apps with Smart installer creates problem while installing and downloading. Enable internet (WIFI or mobile) and it should work.
just flash the default volume ROFS3 from the latest Delight 808 release post and flash it.
I'd like to replay contacts information into my PureView 808 from an older backup of MDataStore.db3. Is there a way to access the contacts information in Delight?ReplyDelete
Hi... I just want to ask a thing: is it possible having the writings under the icons on the various home pages? I need them... Thanx in advance for the eventual replyReplyDelete
sure use Delight App's selector.
Dear Delight team,ReplyDelete
Having in mind Delight installation on Nokia 808 Pureview is irreversible and one loses forever original factory SBelle FP 2 features I would like to ask you if the following features are continued and perfectioned:
- Factory camera software (it has still some adventages compared to reputable and highly esteemed CameraPro). Shall we see here - at last - a speed priority setting? IT pros have explained to me there are some OS built - in exposure limitations. Have you found a workaround?
- Language input settings. Will be still possible on English keyboard with long press on some letters to input French accents and cedille, German umlauts etc.?
- Will be posible to have installed English, Bulgarian and Russian keyboards alltogether?
- Language menus settings. If phone language is set to Bulgarian, will be still possible voice dialling of names written in Cyrillic on the phonebook?
Your work deserves respect and admiration. I would be thankful if you answer simply to my questions (as for a non - IT pro) considering they are of - more or less - common interest.
the camera software is default on Delight, I preset my camera config as default but feel free to change whatever you want :)
We can't do much in a compiled C++ app, we have no sources.
You can edit the fullscreen keyboard via Nokia Keyboard Editor (google for it), but the splitscreen layout is fixed.
If you want more languages email freaxs_r_us, I am sure that he will help you.
Also notify him about the phonebook, I am not sure if this behaviour is correct.
Thanks for you kind words :)
Hi Fabian. After flushing with delight 1.5 I often get prompted to sign into Nokia account. Which of course i cannot do as nokia doesn't support the service anymore. Is there a way to remove this prompting once and for all? ThanksReplyDelete
don't restore old non Delight settings, by default the prompts are disabled on Delight.
Hi Fabian habe dir ne Freundschaft auf FB angeboten. Ich kann dir/euch helfen mit der Lösung für das allgemein bekannte w10 USB Treiber Problem. Und ja per USB nicht per Bluetooth. Ich hab die Lösung bekommst meine E-Mail dann. Und ausführlich wie es gehtReplyDelete
wow das wäre der Hammer :D
Ich habe dich mal angenommen, hoffentlich klappt das :)
As it becomes harder and harder to find sis files for many apps on our phones (read 808). Are familiar with the following approach suggested by a user to copying apps from one phone to another (say when an older phone is on its last legs and a new one of same design is purchased):
On which drive do you install your apps?
If it's E:\ and F:\, turn off your devices and connect them to a PC, copy the drives across 1:1 and then turn them back on. You have to have write access to the private directory for this to work - go to C:\private\10003a3f\AppsListCache\ and delete AppsList.bin. Turn off your phone for a bit, or remove your battery, and then boot and this file should get rebuilt with the new apps present. For a true 1:1, you'll have to copy C:\sys\hash and C:\sys\install over, too, but you have to do that manually.
sorry for the late answer but the non blog post pages are using Blogger comments instead of Disqus, I didn't get a proper notification :-\
Well the hint with the cache and bin files are from me and correct :P
You never can get a true 1:1 copy of your apps on Symbian (unlike to e.g. Android), some apps run procecesses during the installation (e.g. Opera Mobile) or store the settings outside of their private folders (like :\data\, :\system\ or completly new folders).
Just a note: Some Qt apps store their config in C:\data\.config\, maybe you also want to copy this folder if you "clone" a phone.
If you have questions drop me an email, create a thread in DailyMobile Forum or write a comment, I will answer you asap :)
1) Will the original Nokia apps for basics such as camera, sums, email, ... etc. be preserved after flashing? Sorry if this covered somewhere... I just couldn't find that basic info.
2) When you state "turn off your devices, you mean just shutdown the telephony, WiFi and Bluetooth, right?
3) Is there a repository of .sis files anywhere?
I recently moved on from my 808 and find I miss the phone too much, though not the reboots and expired certificate notices, so am finally taking the plunge on some new firmware - and I've never done this before
A few follow-ups:Delete
1) When you state "turn off your device", you are just referring to telephony, WiFi and BT, right?
2) Will the base Nokia apps (e.g. camera, SMS, email, maps, ... etc.) be maintained, after Delight is installed?
3) Is there a repository of .sis files somewhere?
Sorry about these basic questions, but I recently moved on to another phone from my 808 and find I miss it too much (though not the reboots and expired certificate messages) and am willing to take the plunge and install you custom firmware. I've never flashed custom firmware before, so lots of questions.
Thanks in advance.

I have set up a password which I unfortunately forgot. How can I recover it or reset it?ReplyDelete
Hi! Thank you for the great revamp Delight was for symbian phones. I have one Nokia E7 and had set up a password which I have unfortunately forgot. How can I reset or recover it?ReplyDelete
Thank you in advance!
I am a userof 808 since last 5 months and i am in love with the photos it captured.
I am on default nokia FW.
Wanted to try delight rom. So just wanted to know about two problem are fixed on delight FW or not.
1. Phone hangs when using internet on 3G (HSPA+) and network signals are low (switching between 2G and 3G)
2. Phone is unable to connect to same wi-fi network after 4-5 hrs of use untill rebooted.
Appreciate your efforts for such beautiful phone.
I'm trying to flash Nokia E7 with delight.My OS is win 10.Phoenix detects the device as RM-626 and when phoenix starts to flash , E7 switches into Test Mode.After Scanning the image file, Windows Restarts with BlueScreen. Can anyone pls help me with this issue?ReplyDelete
did you read those guides:
If no please read them, otherwise, where do you stuck?
Hi, I only recently found this site and found "delight" I flashed my first phone (E7) last week. In SMS conversation view, new messages pulsate and I find it very hard to read them while they are doing this. Is there some way to prevent this? Thanks. TonyReplyDelete
please read the FAQ -> There is a Tool calles "SMSThemer" which allows you to:
- switch the conversation background
- reset the Delight background
- switch to the original Belle FB2 skin
Fabian, thanks for your response. However, that particular function of SMSThemer doesn't work on the E7 firmware. I noticed that the directory on C: it points to is empty. The option did work on my 808. So i would speculate that those files were somehow left out of the E7 firmware? I tried copying the files from the 808 c: to the E7 C: but that didn't work. It isn't a big problem though. I am just reporting back what I found for future readers.Delete
Can i be able to update my nokia 808 to delight without connecting it to the PC?ReplyDelete
sorry there is no way to flash a Symbian device without of a PC.
I am a complete Ludite but love the Pureview 808. However, it has the inherent 3G problems, etc. How can I get your fixes and apply them to my 808 to prevent frequent lock-ups?
Can I still update my firmware on Nokia 808? If so, how? What will I expect to change?ReplyDelete
I have had problems logging in with Droper, Files plus and cute box . However this workoround will do it: copy the authorization adress from the opened browser window and paste into opera mobile, then allow respective app to be authorized. For files plus the pin code will be automatically pasted into the progrm when copying it.ReplyDelete
FYI (using delight 1.5 on pw808): I have had problems authorizing dropbox accounts with several clients (Files Plus, Droper, Cute Box). When a browser window (Nokia browser) has been opened (as you have begun the authorizing process from within the program) and userid and password has been entered no further action has been possible. The following workaround has been tested on Files plus and Droper: 1) Copy authorizing address from Nokia Browser and enter into an Opera mobile page (Opera mini seems to truncate Files Plus PIN-code), 2)Open the authorizing page in Opera mobile and authorize selected program, 3) Finish the authorizing process: in Droper by choosing "Done" in the menu, in Files Plus by entering PIN code. The PIN Code that appears in an opening window seem to copy automatically into the program when marking an doing the copy-action in that window. This process has worked fine for me!ReplyDelete
