Hi everybody,

I post here since I am having boot issues too. I reflashed the N900, installed u-boot and was trying to get NITDroid work, but messed up something and now I can only access u-boot terminal. I cannot reflash the phone since when connected to a computer it is not recognised.

I am trying to create a bootable SD card and boot from there, but I don't know how to unpack the RX-51_2009SE_20.2010.36-2_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin file to get the kernel.

Another option would be to directly flash from the SD card.

Any help?

UPDATE: I have been able to unpack the .bin file by issuing

flasher-3.5 -F ....bin -u

So now I have the kernel. I have extracted the zImage and converted it to uImage by mkimage (utility part of the u-boot suite). I have written a short script for starting the kernel and made it into image. Copied all to sd card (single partition). Boots, but hangs and reboots.

At this point I need some advice on how to pass correct parameters to the kernel in order to gain access to the file system.
