    Wow wow wow!!! These procedure works magically. At previous time when connect my n8 via nokia suit. It always pops-up certificate expired. After following this steps with the norton hach tool. I connected my phone to verify and magicall the disturbing certificate expire did not pop up again. All important softwares has been installed. Hello administrator, I wanna know if I can delete the hacking tool icons after completion? Because a friend can take my fone and do some unintentional changes.
