My N900 was acting buggy last night and now this morning all the repositories in the application catalog have disappeared off it. I can't even add them back. It lets me create a new one, but after i put in all the info and click save, nothing appears. Any thoughts?

Restored my settings from a backup a couple days ago and it seems like that fixed the problem. This phone is not incredibly stable as I read in the reviews; however, I have to endtask my email almost everytime I open it to read messages.

Same problem here!
All repositories are lost, but it's not the only problem!

-Maybe cause I used the heavy "reboot" command these last 2 days.
-Since 2 days Extras-devel & Extras-testing are always blocked.
-Media player can't find any media files(but i can run them by the file manager).
-The display menu in the settings does not open(it does now).

If anyone would have any idea about how to fix this... It would be great!

Thanks dudes.

I re-installed maemo 5 using Nokia Software Updater and it worked well (except when XP told me the n900 unpluged during the setup -> start it again and OK).

That was the opportunity to enjoy the backup utilities

I got back mails, sms, applications , and even the setup of the widgets on my desktop

the only bad point is that I've lost the setting of my Msn-haze account and all contacts from it.

So far... everything's fine!

I had the same problem, think I just firgured it out, the wiki page says it is

with distribution as fremantle

but from the post above I saw someone post this link:

So I reflashed, and retried, but as distribution I put fremantle-1.3 and it seems to be working...

On the other hand, repo list will sometimes 'disappear' of it's own accord at times, even though all repo information is intact.
In these cases, the best thing is patience. HAM is known for being sluggish.
