How To Reinstall N8 Ovi Store After Hard Reset
Nokia has finally fixed the N8 Ovi Store installation error that happen after hard reset the world first Symbian^3 smart phone equipped with 12MP camera.
But the excitement is kind of not there because, firstly Nokia took ages to release this fix this issue secondly most of the mobile apps that I found interesting to use are only released for iOS, Android, RIM…leaving a blank and question mark on Symbian platform.
Anyway, Here’s how to fix this issue:
Step 1: Locate and open Software Update apps on N8 (the icon named “SW Update”).
Step 2: There should be 2 updates available, i.e. Ovi Store and Apps Update 1.0 – just select both and proceed to install.
Though there are only two upgrades available in the Software Update apps, the Application Manager Installation Log reveals 13 Symbian apps are installed – Video Player 9.22.53, QtMobility 1.00.1, CWRT Core 1.00.1101, Wrt Service Providers, CP Services 2.00.1101, OMB 1.00.1032, Ovi-shared-signed, SSO 1.02.1050, Ssoui_signed, LKM 1.00.1050, Ovi Store 2.00.14, Services Client Platform, Ovi Store Installer.
Step 3: Open Ovi Store and sign in with your account. After a while, it will report a newer upgrade is available:
During the upgrade, it shows Ovi Store 2.00.10025. When the upgrade process completes, the final Ovi Store version is 2.04.00041 (shown in both About view and Installation Log).
