    Default Nokia N8 Flash Away Symbian Re-install Android???

    Hi,

    Would it be possible to remove the symbian operating system from my Nokia N8 so I could then Flash an Android system on to it instead?

    No funds for a new phone and get extremely jealous when ever i see an android working, the Nokia N8 is a decent specked phone but

    Symbian

    is no fun at all and is graphicly immature.

    Thanks for any help

    Welcome to AC
    Unfortunately, there is no way to install Android on the N8. From a bit of Google searching, it appears that Nokia locked down the bootloaders on the device to make it impossible to port Android to that device.
