The What Mobile forum is back open for business!

Hello to all fellow mobile technology lovers,

We realise this forum has been dormant for quite some time and today we begin our long task of reviving it!

We urge you all to come back and start posting again. Mods will be back in full force and the banhammer will be used to filter out the horde of spambots parading through our digital streets.

As the new moderators and staff here at What Mobile magazine, we have made it our duty to reinvent this into the once-bustling forum that is used to be.

Enjoy the rest of your week and we look forward to getting things moving again.


Thomas Wellburn and Joanna Tatum

    Don't know then, sorry, presumably it gave you an error message of some kind but I'm not a mind reader so can't say what might be the problem.

    Can only suggest you re-read the Wiki page slowly and carefully.

        No, I don't think it has worked.

        Has the N900 booted into Maemo at this stage, or is it in "Flasher" mode (detailed below, and documented in the wiki page)?

        It may be possible to flash the eMMC of a booted device (what state it's left in is anyones guess) but when flashing the firmware the device must not be booted and must be in "Flashing" mode (aka USB mode):
        1. Turn off Maemo device
        2. Press and hold down key 'u' on the physical keyboard
        3. Connect USB cable between Maemo device and host PC while holding down key 'u'
        4. When USB cable gets connected it powers Maemo device and set's it to flashing mode
        5. When the "Nokia" logo appears (the screen will be quite dark) and USB icon appears in the right upper corner, the Maemo device is now in "flashing" mode
        6. Release the 'u' key
        7. Run your two flasher commands and allow the device to reboot into Maemo

              My instructions:

              Code:
              cd "%ProgramFiles%\maemo\flasher-3.5"
              
              flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f
              
              flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.19-1.203.1_PR_COMBINED_203_ARM.bin -f -R

              The problem you are having appears to relate to the eMMC image (the firmware image doesn't perform a "raw data" transfer) - you should be flashing the eMMC image *first* followed by the firmware image, then reboot the device... if your comment is correct then it seems you have reversed my instructions and are flashing the firmware image first, followed by the eMMC image.

              Does bug 7433 match your problem? They're applying the firmware first, followed by the eMMC as well. Try reversing the order, see if it helps.
