Re: Audio player in 2016

I've just tried downloading the Android version from here (http://rasher.dk/rockbox/android/) and it actually works (no graphics whatsoever, but that isn't an issue as I actually prefer textual...

Re: Audio player in 2016

I had no idea it existed as player-independent software. I loved it on my Sansa clip and I've installed it on every player I've owned that supported it (mostly old iPods that were given to me by...

Audio player in 2016

I'm in need of a bluetooth-enabled audio player and my old retired N900 would fit the bill just fine. I have SomePlayer installed from the days when I was using it as my phone, but I've always hated...

Re: Is there any way to do a full eMMC backup and reflash from a PC?

Thanks, it seems that should do. It isn't *exactly* what I wanted, but it appears to offer similar functionality with a lot less hassle, so yay!

Is there any way to do a full eMMC backup and reflash from a PC?

I need a fresh N900 to do a few experiments on, but I'm unwilling to let go of my existing Maemo install, which I customized extensively before I discontinued its use and would never be able to...

Re: DebiaN900 - A set of scripts to facilitate the installation of native Debian (WIP)

Re: Homemade XXL battery, 6000/7000mAh

Oh hey, someone's still at it! :D

How did you connect to the phone without a battery's terminals to cannibalize?

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp Client for the N900 ONLY

Oh, have you decided to opensource it then?

I wonder if anyone will use the source to make clients for other platforms. I just updated my Nokia 520 to the latest WinPhone version and the official...

Re: Farewell N900, farewell Maemo, and farewell to all of you beautiful people in the community

Fair enough. I just read on Wikipedia and it says Jolla announced their intentions in july 2012. Considering they've made a system and phone from scratch, I suppose a bit more than a year's...

Re: Farewell N900, farewell Maemo, and farewell to all of you beautiful people in the community

Man alive, my posts are becoming quite alarmingly long. Hey, take them as a stream-of-thought almost-review of WinPhone. :P


I don't think it's fair to say you can't do things with WP8. There are...

Re: Farewell N900, farewell Maemo, and farewell to all of you beautiful people in the community

Surprisingly so. I'm actually quite amazed at how smooth and fast it is on the 520's hardware. I've used new-ish Androids with similar configurations (dualcore 512ram) and they've all felt much less...

Re: Farewell N900, farewell Maemo, and farewell to all of you beautiful people in the community

Actually, I am.

The N9 doesn't look like a tremendous improvement over the N900 (for instance it still uses a single-core A8, though the gig of RAM is actually pretty good), is hard to get ahold...

Farewell N900, farewell Maemo, and farewell to all of you beautiful people in the community

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp Client for the N900 ONLY

Hmm. You have a point. I guess what's left of the WinMo crowd just doesn't care enough about their system.

Too bad, though... there are a lot of still-functional WinMo devices out there that could...

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp Client for the N900 ONLY

I have a somewhat meta question. I hope it's not inappropriate; in case it is, feel free to ignore or delete.

Re: My N900 has started switching off on its own

It was its battery... and the other one I was trying it with.

I ran it from a much newer and healthier LiIon cell and it worked fine, so I built another battery for it (it's now only two thirds as...

My N900 has started switching off on its own

I've had occasional unexplained switch-offs since day one, but they would only occur very rarely - sometimes with several months between one and the other. Since yesterday, however, it's started...

USB keyboard

I'm trying to use an external keyboard so I can type Yappari messages faster when I'm at home.

1) plug it in
2) run h-e-n
3) select slow speed
4) select vboost
5) select enumerate
6) curse...

Re: A novel idea to fix the USB port

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp client for the N900 ONLY - v0.0.28

Yappari keeps dying on me. I check the status applet and it says "waiting for connection"; if I tap it, nothing happens. I have to start the app again to get it to appear and connect.

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp client for the N900 ONLY - v0.0.28

Re: [Announce] Yappari - A WhatsApp client for the N900 ONLY - v0.0.28

What happens after the first free year of use? I'm fairly sure I've been using whatsapp for more than a year, but Yappari keeps working. I'm not sure if the use of an alternate client is allowing me...
