I've had weeks and this is the first time this happened! Was some silly power apps too. To tweak some system settings like removing the Nokia hands, etc.

Also looking for the firmware though. Tiboric, which version you uploading?

I can't believe that site is down, has been for 6 hours, when I first checked.

I'm going out this evening and want to take my N900 dang it! Thankfully I have my N82 I can have up and running in moments if need be.

Ok I was able to use Navifirm to download what I believe is the firmware, trying to confirm that now.

http://www.mobile-geeks.com/navifirm-get-firmware-product-codes-of-nokia/1099/

Anyone know where there is a list of what files are in the firmware? Please don't say tablets-dev :P

Rob1n
01-16-2010, 06:11 PM
What do you mean? The firmware is just a single bin file.

Tiboric

Here you go guys:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UTZVUB0P

http://uploading.com/files/deb59m4b/install.bat/

quick tuturial:
making sure phone is off,
download flasher
install
download firmware
download install.bat
move firmware and install.bat to C:\Program Files\maemo\flasher-3.5
plug usb into computer only
run install
and hold U on the n900 keyboard and plug in usb to n900
should connect then start to install (takes about 90seconds)
boot up your n900

but use your heads as this is my region(Global) and there are 3 different ones, Global, US, Asia

Ok, since I have the USA model this is what I did:


Downloaded Navifirm (http://www.mobile-geeks.com/downloads/navifirm.zip);
Searched for the lastest USA firmware;
Downloaded the .bin file;
Followed Tiboric guide;


I had to edit the .bat file and change the filename since I had a different firmware...



It's working now! :D

I wasn't sure if there were other files with it, etc.

I just tried it and received an "Invalid FIASCO file header" line on the command prompt.

Going to download Tiboric's and give it a whirl as well.

what about Slovenian N900?

slender

Its off course nice that you provide it while server is down, but you probably understand that there is quite good reason to ask users product code before downloading? So Please put in your orginal message that any other users outside UK should not test your file.

I do not know what difference there is between firmwares, but I would be very very very careful with these things. I would not be suprised if there is different firmwares (gsm firmware) between countries.

Moving on...things seem to be good to go for the moment! Sweet.

I plan on hosting these files for the future on my own site if anyone ever needs them.

RX-51_2009SE_2.2009.51-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin

good old navifirm, has always been my life saver. lol

tried to keep as simple as i could.
i'll add you post to my earlier one if thats ok?

edit:
yeah if you can find a firmware use navifirm

if not like i said im sure its for the whole of europe as there wasn't a uk spacific one.

there were only 3 variants in total

@ Tiboric thanks for all your help...
I think some of the problem might have been my own fault as I tried to flash the device from Vista 64 bit.
Now I've changed to a computer running Vista 32 bit, but now I can't get the device to initiate the flash mode.

Is the reason why I can't initiate flash mode (No USB icon when plugedin with U held down) because there's not enough power on the battery? and if that is the case is there any way to charge the battery?

I've made a torrent of the vanilla image. However YOU DON NEED THIS TO RESTORE your device, only if you want to restore the 32gb flash card to original state. This image is for all countries and regions.

Flashing on win64 does not work, on linux 64 you need the 32bit usb library. The fastest way is tu use a 32bit linux livecd.

Flashing vanilla from vmware or ms virtual pc(xp mode) wont work. I have flashed the root image from vmware and msvm with success running XP32 in the VM. I was unable to flash from win7 64bit, linux 64bit with 32bit libs works great.

As usual rename the file to .torrent
As soon a s the site is up again I will take down the torrents

Hellforger
01-17-2010, 09:13 AM
Wait a second.I don't understand.I've bricked my n900 and from what I've read if I use flasher 3.5 and RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin
the phone should work.I've read in the firmware updater thread,that it restores factory settings,which in my opinion is a good way to fix it.
Correct me if I'm wrong because I'm tired of this

vartanov
01-17-2010, 09:21 AM
you are wrong :-)

the "vanilla" image restores the 32gb flash memory, the "root" image restores the root partition so you can boot again.
In most cases you do not need the vanilla image. In fact if you use it, it will wipe all your photos, music, contacts, maps, etc. If your backups are located on the 32gb flash it will be wiped out too.

I'm unable to connect to the tracker (I'm mainly interested in the firmware, my N900 is dead). Would it be possible to replicate the .torrent to another tracker? I'm not sure where along the route the block is.

Edit: Never mind the tracker - it looks like I'll be unable to download anything bittorrent. I will have to wait for a mirror which I can download with wget or something.

No, that's the general European one - the UK one is RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.42-11.203.2_PR_COMBINED_203_ARM.bin (the 51-1 firmware still hadn't been uploaded at the end of last week).

I finally got my N900 flashed yesterday. As I expected the battery was t low fr it to enter the USB mode.
I went to a Nokia Care center, but they could not flash my N900 but offered to send it to Poland so I would have it back in 14 days, so I asked then to charge my battery and 2 hours later I got the battery back went home flashed the phone and it worked.

I have succesfully flashed my N900 on Win7 64Bit using windows XP mode.
When you have it setup you need to connect the usb device and give it a couple of minutes so it wil install the drivers on the host.
Flashing eMMC however does not work as that happens in a different mode.

Can someone help me to become the eMMC content

I can downlaod the: RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin but it comes as a Poweriso file and i cannot extract it (?) Not with Poweriso and not with WinRar, so i'm not able to put the .bin file in the flasher-3.5 directory. Looks like the .iso files are corrupt.

Can someone give me a link to the .bin file or please upload it

ThnX in advance

Rob1n
02-02-2010, 09:28 AM
What you've downloaded is the .bin file. The fact that Poweriso is set up on your PC to open .bin files doesn't affect the actual data. If you want to double check, get an md5sum tool for windows and verify that the md5sum of the .bin file matches that posted on the firmware site.

funzip
02-02-2010, 09:40 AM
Ok, seems the files are correct but.....how do i use them as a .bin file, even when they have the Poweriso icon, i'v tried to rename them to .bin but that did not work.....I'm new with this so.....

As Rob1n said there's no need to rename anything, ignore the PowerISO icon the file is a .bin and therefore you can use it as you are supposed to.

The icon shown is the icon for whichever application claims to be able to handle files with that extension. It's got absolutely nothing to do with what the file actually is (especially for non-standard extensions like .bin). Just ignore the icon and carry on with flashing the N900.

Today I've updated my N900 with RX-51_2009SE_2.2009.51-1_PR_F5_MR0_ARM.bin firmware. I had a few problems concerning empty battery and charging of the phone but I have solved it.
So after update my phone switched on but display illumination is not working. So now I don't know what is wrong. I have sarched forums but I can't find the solution neither that someone had that problem before. So I would like to kindly ask you if you can help me. Keyboard is illuminated but display not.

Thank you in advance! Uros Slovenia

Just a suggestion:

What if you first reset the Mass Memory with "RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin " if you did'nt allready, and than do the update again?

Good luck

You don't know how happy I am today because this works. I did what you told me and the light is back on. Someone should write that into troubleshoting area. :D

Thank you very much again funzip!

hi all,

WinXP SP3,
anyone help me, please

If you've followed the instructions and the N900 isn't recognised, the only thing I can suggest is to use a bootable Linux CD and flash it from there.

Hi !!!
Please... could anyone help me to increase the font size for number displayed in contacts?
I have to carry a magnifying glass in my pocket all the time to read the contacts' numbers. (I came to N900 from N97)
And isn't ther some way of displaying contacts as NAME AND NUMBER ?
I'll be very grateful for your help.
Regards,
Raj

The FIASCO image is the firmware image you should have downloaded (see step 2 of http://wiki.maemo.org/Updating_the_tablet_firmware#Updating_.26_Flashing _your_device)

Here you go guys:

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=UTZVUB0P

http://uploading.com/files/deb59m4b/install.bat/

quick tuturial:
making sure phone is off,
download flasher
install
download firmware
download install.bat
move firmware and install.bat to C:\Program Files\maemo\flasher-3.5
plug usb into computer only
run install
and hold U on the n900 keyboard and plug in usb to n900
should connect then start to install (takes about 90seconds)
boot up your n900

but use your heads as this is my region(Global) and there are 3 different ones, Global, US, Asia

I am on my way to send away my N900 for exchange, want to remove "my " stuff as much as possible.

have D/L the Flasher 3.5 and tried to follow the instructions, http://wiki.maemo.org/Updating_the_tablet_firmware but I am far from a coder so I get a bit scared that I will Brick-it.
have put the two large RX51 folders in the Flasher map/file ( there is map named License where I have not put it)

can somebody copy the EXACT command lines i need to type, as the "Dummy" me do not seem to be able to get it working...so I aborted the flashing last time...

in above description D/L install.bat...have not done that is that the fault the Wiki page do not mention that ?


or do you advice my to keep my hands off ?
Do not feel good sending the device to Nokia with some Confidential biz info on it..

thanks in advance for your help

EDIT: have installed the install file and runned it still no action ?

I'm not sure I follow all of what you've done. You should have downloaded the flasher tool and the two .bin files. Which OS are you running this on? On Windows, you need to install the flasher tool, then copy/move the two .bin files into the Program Files/maemo/flasher-3.5 directory.

I know I`m not too clever, don`t blame me...:), I moved to my laptop with with windows... and it worked thx for all your help, and assistance.... :)

@danielo5:
Download the .tar.gz version of the flasher tool. It's for Slackware and other Linux x86-distros that aren't .deb-based. Presumably you know how to install a .tar.gz file on Slackware, but if you don't it's as simple as 'tar maemo_flasher-3.5_2.5.2.2.tar.gz'.
Then follow the instructions on the wiki link. If you follow certain links there you'll find the flasher tool too. At one point you have to provide a code, that's the IMEI code of your device (just the digits).

Which image did you flash with? If you used the 44-1 image (and have previously had a more recent version installed) then you will lose support for the SIM card (as the GSM chip firmware installed by the newer version is not compatible with the old software).

That depends which image you flashed with.

If you didn't use the latest one before, then either update via WLAN, or reflash it with the latest firmware - that's the one labelled (in the Notes field) as Latest and that's for your region. If you're in the UK and don't have WLAN access, you'll have to flash it with the global firmware for now (as there's no recent UK firmware up there).

If you have already flashed with the latest firmware, try reflashing both the eMMC and firmware.

The flasher in .tar.gz format is on http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/maemo-dev-env-downloads.php (maemo_flasher-3.5_2.5.2.2.tar.gz) and the FIASCO images are the firmware images you download from http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/nokia_N900.php

successfully flashed and thank god it doesn't touch the user stuff, my calander is save :D

not i just need to redownload all the apps and redo some of the 'fixes' i made.

just needed to rant. i'm sure everyone that has needed to flash know how i feel right now xD

relieved that it works again and agitated i need to redo everything >.<

thanks for the tutorials though guys. they helped me through this :D

That means either the firmware filename is incorrect (you look to be missing the .bin off the end), the file is not in the current directory, or you've run into a Windows issue with total path lengths (in which case renaming the file with a shorter name should fix it).
