Nokia :: What Does ReFlash Or Flashing Means In N900
Mar 27, 2010
I would like to know what this word Reflash or Flashing means in N900 , i often hear it and really wanna know whatz about .i know Meego Code releasing soon from Nokia and everybody talk about Reflashing , what does it mean and Flashing also what it mean .
I've messed up my n900. I installed OpenJazz from extras-devel (stupidly ignoring warnings about using extras-devel as a noob) and it appears to have killed the phone.
Now all my desktop widgets have vanished (when I add one, it disappears from the list of available widgets, but isn't visible on the screen), and I can't run any applications (apart from built in things like Calendar and Settings).
I guess I've messed up a system file somewhere and I need to reflash the device, but before I do that I wanted to see if anyone's had this before, and if it's solvable without reflashing? It'd also be interesting to know if anyone can identify exactly what the problem is...
I have just this morning got my nokia n900, second hand from ebay. before i put any files on there i want to restore it completely, but this flashing thing is really confusing me. I've done a search of the boards but it baffles me, so if anyone could answer these questions it'd be really helpful:
1) how do i completely wipe it as though it were brand new? (not 'restore original settings' in settings menu, i mean the equivelant of a hard reset)
2) how do i determine what firmware i'm on?
3) what is 'flashing'? is it necessary? if i connect my phone to pc suite/NSU to check for updates, will it work as it does on S60 eg nokia 5800, or do i need another method?
4) i gather the latest firmware isn't yet available for the UK. how do i go about installing it given the n900 doesn't require a changed product code like other models?
I've aquired a N900 with the never ending flashing dots boot problem. I've tried reflashing it a couple of times from my windows 7 laptop but no luck. I did get it to boot into the OS once, but turned it off to insert the SIM and had the same problem again. Is there anything I can try to get this thing working properly again?
Could someone help me to solve this problem with my device? I have flashed my device fw and emmc after its brick. The flashing seemed successfully, but when i try to install some apps like fm radio it returns an error message in which inform me that some installation packages are lost like python2.5. How could solve this and have a functional device again?
I bought an unlocked n97 mini but stupid me bought it from optus as telstra was sold out. So i can make calls etc just fine but I can't seem to use the internet/maps etc as it's trying to go through Optus Zoo. How do i reflash/set the phone so it'll use the correct internet network?
Im on vista,Ive downloaded the flasher program but i really am stuck on the fact that when i do all the commands etc it always says waiting for device. not found.my n900 screen is dark but shows the usb in the corner and nokia on the screen.can someone create a simple step-by-step guide (simpler than the one on maemo.org)starting from like opening command prompt
i have just given my mum my nokia 5230 as i thought it was the worst phone ever invented. under the 3.5g logo at the top left is something which looks kinda like this -- but it has another 2 -- beneath and its offset so couldnt do it exactly what is it as when i had the phone it was never there
1) When I change the wall paper picture, the phone restart 2) When I open the browser & goto a page, as soon as the page loaded the phone restart. 3) When I try to login to facebook, the phone says "Unable to complete the operation" after few minutes I entered the username & Password. 4) Push email it always says "try again later. The connection to the service unexpectedly failed. Please try again later"
I can manually receive emails without problem.I thought of reflashing the phone to see the problem will get solved. But how can I reflash this phone?
i realy your help in this one, now i live in Lebanon, and i'm searching for a n900, but the other day my freind told that you can't check for your balance in your phone operartor, is that true, were i live, you need to recharge your phone in before you make phone calls, send messages etc, and to see how much dollars(or what ever its called) you still have in what you have recharged, you need to press *11# and than the green button, and than a message shows up showing you your phone operator balance, is it true that that can't be done on the n900? i like it how i can overclock the n900 from 600 mhz to 1000 mhz in less than 30 sec.
I had to erase everything from my C6-01 because of some issues I had. The problem now is that my old applications that came from Nokia package disappeared (such as Nokia Store). About Nokia Store, I have tried various ways to reinstall it, guided by the pieces of advices I had found on this site, yet nothing works for me. Plus, I cannot seem to resize my pictures when I set them as wallpapers. Everything went haywire. How I can restore my applications?
my Nexus 5 has recently run into a problem where it suddenly decided to get stuck in a bootloop. I figured I could just reflash the stock rom via the boot loader with the wugfresh root toolkit but that unfortunately didn't work. But by doing this I noticed that my bootloader was not staying unlocked when I try to unlock it. Every time I unlock the boot loader and it restarts the bootloader automatically re-locks. I then proceeded to try and manually flashing the stock rom files individually and unlocking the bootloader each time I flash a file which was really annoying. It still hasn't worked and I'm starting to get worried because I've also started to notice my recovery can't really factory reset or wipe the cache. Instead I get this message at the bottom of the screen:
E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument) E:Can't mount /ache/recovery/log E:Can't open /ache/recovery/log E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument) E:Can't mount /ache/recovery/last_log E:Can't open /ache/recovery/last_log E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument) E:Can't mount /ache/recovery/last_install E:Can't open /ache/recovery/last_install E:failed to mount /cache (Invalid argument)
So now I'm completely stumped, could this be the end of my Nexus 5?
I found a product in some online shopping sites that a signal booster sticker that can be stuck at the back of the battery to improve signal level.Though it looked a bit ridiculous to me, I just wonder whether it works. I face serious kind of signal loss once I enter my apartment, which suddenly drops to 2 bars while outside it is full. Is there any way to improve signal level? My C6-01: Now running on Nokia Belle!
