Unfortunately the hard reset is not something you want to do with the N8 at the moment due to problems post reset. You could however try the *#7370# reset and read the link below before you do.

If there is any doubt ensure N8 is off by holding power button down for 8 seconds until 3 vibrations felt.

 

As you have posted elsewhere on this issue if you must "Hard reset" your N8 at your peril then it's Menu, -Volume (minus volume) and Camera all depressed whilst powering on but release power button only after 1st vibration felt.

Not clear from post whether your N8 keeps re-booting during use or device dead and won't start.

Hi shan0perera ,

 

By default, this code should be 12345.

 

Hope this helps,

Presumably a typographic error for *#7370#, but are you trying to restore settings from memory card or Nokia Suite backup?

Can you backup data from your N8 using Nokia Suite?

Did the update complete? If it did try rebooting again by pressing and holding the power button for around 8 seconds until the phone vibrates.

If you read Pg. 117 of the User Guide , it says 'This does not affect documents or files stored on your device...' .. still suggest you to back-up / sync all your data with the Nokia Suite
