In the i8910 now N8 custom ROM scene, those aware of HyperX may also be aware of the “rivalry” with equally cool guy known as faenil.

He’s contacted us to share his own custom firmware for the Nokia N8 which as well as bringing

  • 30FPS 720 video also delivers
  • lagless recording
  • Raise in audio quality from 128Kbps to 288kbps
  • Picture quality set to 95 instead of 85 (photos will be bigger in size and more definite)

And this is just in the camera hack alone. In the rest of the firmware, mods include:

  • You can now use the dialer in LANDSCAPE
  • MediaPlayer’s percentage of max volume raised from 40% to 60%
  • Voice Recorder max time set to 5 HOURS instead of 1HOUR!
  • Voice recorder kbps set to 256kbps instead of 128kbps!!
  • Max data object size set to 4096bytes
  • Theme Effects complexity reduced to speed up system
  • Special Aurora theme

and more. You should go check out i8910tuning for more details

This link sounds familiar as Keith also sent us a tip in a couple of Sundays ago which I didn’t get around to posting!

I’m glad the i8910 custom ROM folks are now focussing attention to Nokia’s N8 :D!
