Just in case someone needs to reformat the Nokia N8, a Forum Nokia blog post describes how to do this. Excerpt:
    How to Full Format your bricked N8?
    Many guys here face the "brick" problem after trying to play with FontRouter. So I have to find the way to recover it and at last I found one. (And I have to warn you here that DON'T USE FontRouter ON YOUR N8 OR YOU WILL BRICK YOUR DEVICE)

    Here is the method to full format and make bricked N8 come alive again:

    1) Turn off your phone

    2) Hold "Volume Down + Camera Key + Menu Key" and press power button until your phone shake

    3) Wait until screen show properly... and welcome back!!


    Please note that I found these problems after doing full format:

    1. I lost Ovi Maps. However, you could reinstall it by download it here

    2. I also lost Ovi Store 2.0 and I can't reinstall it since it always show "Unable to install".

    So please DON'T do full format if not neccessary or actually I must say that DO IT ONLY AS YOUR LAST CHOICE.
