I follow this instruction for windows:
http://wiki.maemo.org/Updating_the_tablet_firmware
and I don't understand this step:
Flash the FIASCO/rootfs image first using the above commands, WTIHOUT the -R at the end of the command, keep the device plugged in after flashing.
How am I doing that? Where can I download the FIASCO Image? Which command above? Without the R?
This command?
flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f
But no... the next step is to download the eMMC Image.
maybe... only this?
flasher-3.5.exe -F
Please help me. Thats all. Thanks!

the fiasco image is the firware that you want to install example is the pr 1.1, follow the steps the R in the command denotes to reboot so dont put the R at the end of the command, then flash the EMMC image, eMMC is the vanilla firmware..

First I want to reflash the eMMC with the Vanilla FW: RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin
and after that upgrade to the latest FW: RX-51_2009SE_3.2010.02-8_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin
What do I have to do now?
first:
flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f
and second step:
flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R
?

flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f



let it run


then


flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_3.2010.02-8_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R


should be fine.. i just rebooted mine after flash, didn't make much difference, but if u can do it without it booting i suppose its a benefit

its the other way around flash the firmware first RX-51_2009SE_3.2010.02-8_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin then the eMMC RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R[/code]

like this.. flash fiaco first

Download and install the latest version of Flasher e.g. maemo_flasher-3.5_2.5.2.2.exe
Download the latest firmware (.bin) file and save it to %ProgramFiles%\maemo\flasher-3.5\ (the default installation path for Flasher) or to the custom path of your choice.
Ensure the battery is at least half full.
Unplug charger cable and switch off the device.
Open the Command Prompt (Start then Run or Windows Logo key + R) and type cmd then press Enter.
Change the directory to the Flasher's path (TIP: Use the TAB key to auto-complete the commands and file-names)
cd "%ProgramFiles%\maemo\flasher-3.5"
Hold the u key on the device keyboard and connect the USB cable at the same time (see the Flasher documentation)
Run the following command:

flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_2.2009.51-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f

Replace RX-51_2009SE_2.2009.51-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin with the firmware you wish to update (The name of the firmware image file you downloaded in the beginning).

then flash eMMC
Grab the Vanilla eMMC image (.bin file) from the Nokia repository
Navigate to the directory where the image file was saved (Windows users: if you don't know the full path to the image, copy it to the flasher directory)
Execute the following command

flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R

Text similar to the following will be displayed on the computer:
flasher v2.5.2 (Oct 21 2009)

Image 'mmc', size 241163 kB
Version RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA
The dim Nokia screen will be displayed for a few seconds followed by progression dots. Text similar to the following will be displayed on the computer:
USB device found found at bus 001, device address 006.
Found device RX-51, hardware revision 2101

and why should we flash the eMMC (in what situation) or the other one (firmware) ?

Yes and my question is what FIASCO is. I can't find an Image called "FIASCO" I can't flash something without having it...
Where can I download the FIASCO/rootfs image?

flashing the eMMC is totally wiping out all items or apps from your n900 restoring to factory defaults then the firmware flash for firware updating or resetting

There is: Vanilla version of the eMMC content for Nokia N900, Maemo 5, Second Maemo 5 and Latest Maemo 5.
Nothing with FIASCO

I want restoring to factory defaults and have the latest firmware. But I don't understand the FIASCO step, because there is no file with FIASCO thing...

the fiasco thing is the image firmware itself example is this

RX-51_2009SE_2.2009.51-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin, from the tablets site you can choose which to download global or U.S. variant or UK

Morku
05-03-2010, 11:59 AM
Okay. I am from germany. So I choose the Global FW.
When FIASCO is the Firmware I want to have. I would make these steps:
# Fully charge the battery (IMPORTANT!!)
# Install Flasher for your OS (Linux, Mac OS X or MS Windows)
than...
connect to PC, holding u
start cmd
flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_3.2010.02-8_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f
and than
flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R
and I am done. Am I right? ^^

I have found this https://bugs.maemo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4955

Please update your Windows XP to SP3 OR vista SP2 . Then you should have no problem in flashing eMMC !!!

Here is Jarmo Tikka from nokia explained the issues and the fix .

Current Fremantle / Diablo flasher-3.5 beta for Windows has problems when
flashing eMMC image to the memory card to the Fremantle device through USB
(notice that Linux and Mac versions work fine).
eMMC flashing problem is there because Microsoft Windows modem drivers do not
handle URB unknown (to them) requests properly but will hang and flasher-3.5
binary will not get any response to the request to change device state to
update mode wjhich allows memory card flashing. MS drivers have same problem in
XP and Vista. We are working on to find workaround to these Windows driver bugs
(by implementing new lower driver in addition to existing upper driver that
bypasses all Maemo Device requests so that MS drivers will never see them, as
one possible solution ).

05-25-2010, 12:59 PM
deter3 (and Jarmo) are quite right; my emmc flashing froze where others have stated in this thread. I was running WinXP sp2. With Win7 32bit the flashing went smoothly.

1. Can I rename files to something PR12.bin and eMMC.bin ( to make it easier to type

2. From what I read the eMMC flashing issue is specific to Win XP or Vista? Can I do it on Windows 7?

Thanks!

I've reflashed the firmware on my device more than a few times in the past few months, from my Linix desktop machine. I've never had a problem. Reflashed to the US version of PR1.2, again no problem. Attempted to reflash the eMMC with the latest file and got a size mismatch error. Re-downloaded the file and got a file with a different byte size the second time. That one worked fine. I wonder if the other folks reporting eMMC problems are hitting the same issue. Maybe there was something weird with the site or the source file for a small window of time. Just speculation. I'd advise trying to download the file again.

You mean I will be fine removing battery and rebooting. Unfortunately I cannot do much about the WinXP as this is my office PC.

Edit: I saved all the stuff (backups, photos) on my phone to PC so data loss should not be a worry.

I have xp SP2 that might explain it. had to make dual boot because 64bit 7 doesn't like old firewire devices and flasher so much. I'll wait my xp to get updated to SP3 and try again.

I flashed both images in Win 7 x64 using XP mode (virtual PC).

First flash went without problems - device was attached via USB menu in restore mode + I did remove battery after.

Second flash (eMMC) hanged in command prompt, but proceeded when reattached device that was alredy attached but disconnected at the moment flasher started. Again, USB menu -> attach device, this time in suite mode.

Flasher started imediately.

Dunno if this is right or wrong, but it's working for me. XP mode is SP3 by default.

This will format the whole phone so everything will be lost unless you back it up.
Formats eMMC images and flashes the phone to 1.2 Global Release.

1. Downloaded (http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/nokia_N900.php)
• flasher-3.5.exe
(http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/maemo-dev-env-downloads.php?f=maemo_flasher-3.5_2.5.2.2.exe)

(http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/nokia_N900.php?f=RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin)

2. I installed the "flasher-3.5.exe"
3. I then moved
"RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.19-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin"
"RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin"
To the directory where I installed the flasher (Default is C:\Program Files\maemo\flasher-3.5).
4. I then done a full backup of my N900 using the backup tool on the phone and moved all my stuff on to the memory card.
5. Ensure the battery is at least half full.
6. Unplug charger cable and switch off the device.
7. Open the Command Prompt (Start then Run or Windows Logo key + R) and type "cmd" then press Enter (this will open a black window).
8. Change the directory to the Flasher's path by typing in "cd "%ProgramFiles%\maemo\flasher-3.5"
9. Hold the u key on the device keyboard and connect the USB cable at the same time.
10. Run the following command by typing:
"flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.19-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f"

After this completes

11. Run the following command by typing:
"flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R"

The flash will take around 1 minute after which the device will reboot.
The bright Nokia screen will come up on the screen with the USB icon on the top right followed by progression dots with yellow LED blinking for a few seconds
And you’re done. Welcome to the world on 1.2

Here is my step by step.
This was the 1st time i flashed my phone. only took me about 5mins in total after i had downloaded all the things i needed.

and using copy and past (in CMD bit u can have right click to copy)

Hope this helps

10. Run the following command by typing:
"flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.19-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f"

After this completes

11. Run the following command by typing:
"flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R"

The flash will take around 1 minute after which the device will reboot.
The bright Nokia screen will come up on the screen with the USB icon on the top right followed by progression dots with yellow LED blinking for a few seconds
And you’re done. Welcome to the world on 1.2

Here is my step by step.
This was the 1st time i flashed my phone. only took me about 5mins in total after i had downloaded all the things i needed.

and using copy and past (in CMD bit u can have right click to copy)

Hope this helps

that is exactly what I did without success. it isn't rocket science but it isn't working with me either.

you need to flash fiasco first before eMMC as per instruction

Note from http://tablets-dev.nokia.com/nokia_N900.php

"Always flash the eMMC image first, then the FIASCO image immediately after that."

"always flash the eMMC/VANILLA image first, and then flash the FIASCO/Rootfs image"

it doesnt matter in which order you do. if you flash rootds then make sure you remove the -R command so the phone doesnt restart then flash vanilla
if you install vanilla first then you have to flash rootfs.
many people prefer to flash rootfs first because it nornally solves the issues out which they have with their phone. if they dont then they flash vanilla.
ive persoanlly flashed rootfs everytimr then vanilla and never had any issues
