How to upgrade your Nokia E7 with Delight custom firmware
If you are a fan of the Nokia E7, the unique smartphone with a full-width fold-out QWERTY keyboard, you might be interested in giving it a new lease of life with Delight custom firmware. Delight is a custom operating system for Symbian smartphones that offers more speed, more space, more features and more customization than the official Nokia firmware.
Delight custom firmware for the Nokia E7 is based on Belle 111.040.1511, product code 0591821, and was cooked by huellif and freaxs_r_us. It was released in February 2014 and is still available for download from Delight Custom Firmwares. Some of the benefits of Delight custom firmware are:
More system disk space (a lot more), thanks to moving files from UDA to ROFS
More free RAM, thanks to removing bloatware and optimizing processes
All patches and updates already in place, including Nokia Store fix, Ovi Proxy and Radio Symbian
The ability to install even 'unsigned' applications, which is especially important now that the main Nokia Store is frozen
More customizable UI components than you could ever imagine, including themes, widgets, icons and fonts
To install Delight custom firmware on your Nokia E7, you will need to flash your device using Phoenix software. Flashing is a process of replacing the original firmware with a custom one. It is not very difficult, but it requires some caution and preparation. Here are some steps to follow:
Backup your data. Flashing will erase everything on your phone, so make sure you have a backup of your contacts, messages, photos and other important files.
Download Phoenix software from here and install it on your PC.
Download Delight custom firmware for the Nokia E7 from here and extract it to a folder on your PC.
Connect your Nokia E7 to your PC using a USB cable and make sure it is in PC Suite mode.
Run Phoenix software and select File > Scan Product. Wait for Phoenix to detect your phone.
Select Flashing > Firmware Update. A window will pop up with some information about your phone.
Click on the small button next to Product Code and select 0591821 from the list. This is the product code of Delight custom firmware.
Click OK and then click Refurbish. A warning message will appear. Click Yes to proceed.
Wait for Phoenix to flash your phone with Delight custom firmware. Do not disconnect your phone or interrupt the process.
When the flashing is done, your phone will restart automatically. You will see some notifications on your screen. Let it do its work.
Congratulations! You have successfully installed Delight custom firmware on your Nokia E7.
