After very long waiting time, Symbian Belle update is now officially announced  for major Nokia smartphone’s  like  Nokia N8,C7,C6-01,E7,X7,E6,Nokia 500 etc. You can update your handset to Symbian Belle using latest NOKIA SUITE,we recommended you to use latest pc  suite for better performance & update operation.Change log of Symbian belle  is really appreciable w.r.t user interface & performance. Symbian belle is totally redesigned version of Symbian Anna.I personally  like the ability of customization in Symbian belle which provide us android like interface & navigation  🙂

Symbian Belle Update

Symbian Belle Update

Some Key Changes in Symbian Belle update:

1. Enhance UI having up-to  6 Home screens & Online widgets.

2. Simple menu & home screen shortcuts.

3. Improvement in Camera setting, re-sizable & movable shortcuts.

5. Memory optimization is much good in Belle.

6. Latest and improve version of Navigation,Image & Browser apps

7. Customization of  lock screen & new version of SOCIAL apps( need to update  using OTA  S/W update )


Before installing update:

1. Take a backup of your data & check for update availability

2. Use latest NOKIA suite,download it from here ,we recommended this because if u have leaked (Symbian Belle) already installed  then using latest Nokia suite you can update to official without flashing 🙂

3. Use broadband internet or 3G connection


Process of updating Symbian Belle using Nokia suite: 

1. Connect your mobile to PC using PC-suite mode.

2. Navigate to Software update icon and click on proceed.

    • Saurabh Oct 15,2016 at 2:29 pm

      Hi, it looks like a sensor issue, I checked with my N8 it’s not having any issue as it has latest Symbian Belle OS. Please check with a technician to fix it ! Probably Nokia service center. I doubt whether they have sensor available or not. Hope for best !

  • rajeev Mar 2,2016 at 1:48 pm

    hi Saurabh
    i really need your expert advice
    i have nokia e6 and i have downloaded nokia firmware RM-609 111.140.0058 (belle refresh) and i want to flash it. but there is a problem my usb port is not working… do you have any idea how to flash my nokia e6 with using pheonix or nokia suit ?

    • Saurabh Mar 2,2016 at 5:43 pm

      Hi Rajeev,
      I’m sorry.
      Its really impossible to Flash your device as your USB is malfunctioned. If you want to update, then It can be done using OTA. But flashing need strong USB support which will not possible in your scenario. What you can do replace your USB port from local repairing center and then try it again.

  • uws Dec 15,2015 at 10:25 pm

    Need Help with C6-01 Belle Refresh ver 111.040.1511.

    1) Is there a later version than 111.040.1511 – how do I get it?

    2) Where do I get the app for the Torch Light and “App Stop”?
    Because, I installed homescreenwidgets.sisx from “Adding Mirror, Stopwatch, Flashlight, etc. to Belle Refresh” located on allaboutsymbian com
    It installed fine but no apps were on the home screen?

    3) I have turned off 3G since it uses a lot of power. Is there a work around or a replacement battery?

    • Saurabh Dec 17,2015 at 12:18 am

      Hi uws please find my below answers
      Ans1: Their is no new version for C6-01, Belle Refresh ver 111.040.1511 is latest one.
      Ans2: You can install following dedicated apps if needed
      TourchApp AppStop
      as u told u installed already then to enable that u have to add them as widget at home screen
      Ans3: All symbian phones are battery killer, their is no option to save battery while using 3G. I was also fed up with same & switched to Android

      You can flash ur device using some custom firmware

      I hope this will help you.

  • Akif Mar 6,2015 at 7:29 pm

    I got E51 and *#0000# only shows me the version of the mobile, no button or any source to update my cellphone’s firmware. I’ve searched the whole google out to upgrade my firmware but nothing worked.
    When the installation part comes in Nokia suite 3.8.54(latest version). the installation bar goes to 10-20% and the mobile restarts, then the mobile screen goes black (no “nokia” logo even without backlights) where the software waits for the device to complete its restart state which takes too long which causes the ‘nokia usb flashing generic – device unplugged” and the update stops with the error “connection lost with phone”. I did let the mobile to start again then i clicked ‘ok’ but, the installation process starts from the beginning and then the whole situation i explained repeats.
    HELP ME? :'(

    • Saurabh Mar 11,2015 at 1:04 am

      HI Akif,
      Look like their is an issue with phone memory while updating.What I suggest u take backup of your all data then hard reset your phone using *#7370# then try to get OTA update from *#0000# if that issue still persist then use phoneix software to flash and update ur mobile.
      Let us know more about it

    • Saurabh Dec 19,2014 at 12:39 am

      Hi Ebrahim,
      Look like their is an issue with your Phones Nokia Suite, please reinstall it,to do this connect ur phone via Nokia Suite then in on of file option you will see Install Phone Software.
      While updating your phone from PC you need good quality internet connectivity on PC,no need of mobile net. If you want to update it from mobile (OTA) connect ur phone to wifi or 3G then use this code *#0000# and from option simply select ->check for update<-if their is an update for your phone you will get it from their. Still it fail then you can backup your data and do flashing from Navfirmware, see this

  • karan Sep 23,2014 at 1:05 am

    hi, i have a nokia e7 and it says that the belle update is available for my phone. so i installed the nokia suite software (latest version) and started the installation process. the belle update downloaded successfully, and my files backed up successfully as well, but in the third step (where the software is installed in the phone) the cable connection keeps fluctuating and, hence, the process doesnt go further. i checked the cable, it works perfectly fine with the mobile otherwise, its only when i am installing the update in my phone, that it starts showing the error. what should i do???

    • Saurabh Sep 26,2014 at 12:37 am

      Hi Karan,
      What I suggest you try to update it using OTA dial *#0000# and click ‘check-Update’ option. I recommended to connect your phone to wifi or 3G network to download updates. Once it will complete you don’t need any cable to update process.
      If it still didn’t work I suggest you to Flash it using Phoenix Service Software as you already have your backup with Nokia Suite.
      Note: while flashing keep battery of mobile above 80%

      Let me know if you will need more info on this

    hi please answer. I had my C7 download for the belle, but I always stuck in the 3rd step. It’s said “Connection to the phone was lost”, but then its reconnect on its own and then said “USB connection is active” I always try to click next, but the same problem show up again.
    I try to dial *#0000# –> check for updates and there’s no update available. I tried dial *#7370# or *#7780# but it’s still not work. It’s still stuck in 3rd step over and over.
    Please help 🙁

    • Saurabh May 1,2014 at 3:57 pm

      Try hard resetting option,before this take backup of your contacts and other data. The procedure for the hard reset is as follows.
      Hold “Volume down + Camera Key + Menu Key + Power button” and press power button until your phone buzzes.

      Then re-install latest version of Nokia suite on your machine and always run it by Rclicking->Run as Administrator.

      Then recheck for update.

      I hope this will help you.

      Let me know for further assistant

    • Saurabh Nov 13,2012 at 1:19 pm

      Ohh.. might be a problem of firmware.I suggest u to hard reset ur phone. before that do backup of ur contacts,notes etc. using OVI Sync as ur usb is not detecting this is good way to take backup on fly. After completing this do hard reset using *#7370#,provide ur security code(default:12345).If it pop-up to ‘End active calls’ then end all data connections from pull down bar. It will restart your mobile and refresh your settings.Now connect your usb to mobile and check whether its working or not. 😀 Let me know if any help is needed.

          HI, I suggest you to try to update it by connecting your mobile to WiFi. Make sure your internet connection is stable, Dial *#0000# code and then click on check for update.
          You will get update list, just download it and enjoy.

          If this also not work then by taking backup of your mobile reset it using *#7370#. then retry for same. If you want to use USB for same make sure u have latest NOKIA SUITE installed.

          Let me know if you need more help.

          HI Raja,

          Please try OTA update by typing *#0000# and in option menu click ‘CheckforUpdate’

          This will help you, please connect your phone to good wifi or 3G connection before you proceed and don’t forgot to take backup before rolling out updates
