Re: From Nitdroid Back To to OS2008?

If you're on Windows, I think you can use that Nokia Software Update app you found. If you're on Linux (or like using the command line), then the "Updating Tablet Firmware" wiki page is right for...

Re: Meego ?

Make sure you're getting the correct image from that site. Pretty sure the eMMC one isn't the right one.

Re: Debian Mobile: MeeGo on Debian (for N900?)

@titan and @yoush:
Well, it sounds like you guys have your goals down pretty well. I think the next thing to do is really roll up your sleeves and see how far you can get. Best of luck!

Re: Debian Mobile: MeeGo on Debian (for N900?)

That's very ambitious but that's exactly the kind of clear goal you need to set in advance. But if you set a goal of never breaking compatibility with Maemo 5, you're not going to get anywhere close...

Re: How to install javascript apps?

How about do it the way they do for the ovi store? I'll paste in the .desktop file for it in case you don't have a physical N900 on hand:

Re: How secured is the N900 with Maemo5?

I've had a password set for 'user' and 'root' on the N800 (since mid-2007) and N900 both, and have seen zero problems so far. I also set the hostname in /etc/hostname. ;) Now, I'm not saying there's...

Re: Can not install anything via X-Terminal

For future reference, do you have any idea what you might have installed that caused the problem? Was it from maemo (extras/extras-devel/extras-testing)? Was it from someplace else?

Re: How do you use X Terminal to install .deb files
