1. Press Menu

2. Press Settings

3. Press Application Manager

4. Press Installed apps.

5. Scroll down & find Socially, press down for a few secs, a pop-up will show Uninstall. Now Unistall!

6. If you also have Social Installer. Do the same and Unistall that too.

7. Restart your mobile (or turn your phone off, then on)

8. Go here & download/save the N8FANBOYCLUB.SOCIAL1.3 zip file to your desktop.

(and YES, N8 social DOES work with NOKIA C7!!)

9. Unzip file to a SISX file.

10. Attach your mobile to your computer using your USB cable. you should receive a pop up on your comp. screen for your Phone memory folders. Open Mass Memory.

Choose & open INSTALLS folder.

11. Drag & dop (or copy & paste) the N8FANBOYSOCIAL1.3 sisx File into your Installs folder.

12. Remove your USB cable.

13. Press menu, settings, Application Manager, Installation Files, Now press & Install the New N8/Nokiac7 Social file you just added to your mobile. Wait until everything has installed into your mobile (ie: widget etc)

After installation, mobile will restart automatically or you can restart your mobile yourself.

Once mobile has restarted, you SHOULD have Soicals back to your mobile.

14. Add Socials to your home screen by pressing down on the screen for a few seconds, if you have space on your home screen, press the + and scroll to Socials and add this to your screen, click done. Now sign into Socials.



side note: Please make sure your SIM is inserted into your phone and working.

Re: Nokia Social 1.3 "Unable to Install"

Hi cecampbell

 

I've also uninstalled Social because v1.3 didn't work for me. Tried to follow your steps, but I'm getting a 'Certificate Error' when I try to install 1.1.

 

Any tips??

 

Thanks!

Re: Nokia Social 1.3 "Unable to Install"

There is beta version of the Social client (1.3.189) for Symbian^3 devices available on our Betalabs, see following link:

 

http://betalabs.nokia.com/apps/nokia-social-1-3

 

Feel free to try it and give feedback directly to that site.

I saw one issue after installation. The version was 1.3.143 after installation. I rebooted the device and then version number updated to 1.3.189.

Re: Nokia Social 1.3 "Unable to Install"

OK, here's my 2 cents: ever since I got my fingers on the E7 a month ago, gorgeous looking phone btw, I was banging my head n-times with errors, freezes, can't install/uninstall messages, hard/soft resets and other problems, all related to the damned Social app. Yesterday, finaly, after I was about to trash the phone in to the glass door of my carrier's store, I did something that made the social app play.

 

I don't know about the rest of you but my phone came with my local language installed so first I changed the language to english and have phone rebooted.

For the first time I saw social installer actually installed as an app (before I couldn't uninstall it because it simply wasn't there, and i got **bleep** messages as: social is already installed) so I uninstalled everything called social. Rebooted and first installed Social mixer downloaded from  http://www.multiupload.com/7GNQIJ1XEB and followed instuctions from /t5/Nseries-and-S60-Smartphones/Nokia-Social-1-3-quot-Unable-to-Install-quot/td-p/900041/page/4 and after that social app from the same zip.

Everything installed flawlesly, phone rebooted again and I updated to the last beta version from this site - it finaly works. Rebooted again, switched to my own language and voila. I guess this will work for the N8, too.

ON The other hand. The app itself is a mediocre attempt (no LinkedIn) of a fully functional social app from other platforms (iOS, Android) but at least it works now. So far, looks and basic functions as making a call aside, Nokia E7 has been a joke. I have used Nokia phones from 1995 onwards (anyone remembers 2110?, 6310i, 6680, E75 among others) and not once have I witnessed so much **bleep** responses, trouble and unstability as with this phone. It is utterly unacceptable to sell a +500€ phone that is half functional, buggy, unstable and inpractical in so many ways it really hurts. I don't like Microsoft but as I see this it was the only smart and logical move from Nokia to get them to write some decent software. OVI store is a joke, too - apps work or they don't, all the icons look different (resolution, size, no auto update warnings, no OVI software backusps...) About the only thing that is really good on this phone is the Maps app and it too needs some functionality improvements.

Best, Ales

Direct link is http://store.ovi.com/content/137675

 

Note you might find that it will not install over the existing social app. I couldn't as I was running 1.3.189 and Ovi Store did not recognize the new app as an upgrade. If you get this problem, go to the app manager on your phone and uninstall Social, and Social Installer and you will then be able to install the latest version.
