I already read. I executed the script. I mounted. I went to /mnt/maemo/home. I typed "ls". It's simply empty. And WTF is that?!

Sigh. People...
maemo's home is on EMMC, rootfs on NAND. Now, think why you can't access /home/ if you just mount the rootfs... yep, you didn't mount mmcblk0p2 (which is mmcblk1p2 in rescueOS).


BTW, is it still developed?
Not entirely dead, but also not really alive atm. I am focusing on other things, not N900 related.

Please rephrase.

AND mass storage drive appeared as "RAW" unidentified format in Windows..
Not sure why. I don't have windows, so I can't really look into that.

Don't worry about second part of my post, it was Star Wars/you nick pun, as seen in original (imperial Officer to Harrison Ford aka Han Solo disguised as Stormtrooper):

TK-412, why you've left Your post?
TK-412, do You copy?

...and was widely used as SW pun many times in many cases/movies/books/whatever.

So, particularly, it was meaningless for meritocratic discussion

Aye, I AM Linux n00b for sure. But surely I tried mounting mmcblk1p2/3 and some error occurred... I'll be reporting error line later

Hi,

Can someone tell me how to use rescue os to enable mass storage mode, as the screen of my N900 is dead so I'll be doing it blindly.

@bvaibhav,

Code:
USB Mass-Storage mode
--------------------
/rescueOS/mass-storage-enable.sh
Makes /dev/mmcblk1p1 and /dev/mmcblk1p2 available for the mass-storage
mode. These are the EMMC home partition and MyDocs in maemo.  

/rescueOS/mass-storage-disable.sh: Deactivates mass-storage mode.
Is it so hard to read a text file?!

It is not hard to read a text file but as I told earlier the display of my phone is dead so I wont even come to know what happens when rescue OS boots....... or even confirm whether rescue os is loaded.....

I did the below mentioned but nothing happened, correct me if I was wrong.

1. Flashed the rescue os
Code:
sudo flasher-3.5 -k 2.6.37 -n rescueOS-initrd-0.5.3.img -l -b"rootdelay root=/dev/ram0"
[sudo] password for user: 
flasher v2.5.2 (Oct 21 2009)

Suitable USB device not found, waiting.
USB device found found at bus 001, device address 013.
Found device RX-51, hardware revision 2204
NOLO version 1.4.14
Version of 'sw-release': RX-51_2009SE_20.2010.36-2.004_PR_004
Sending kernel image (1901 kB)...
100% (1901 of 1901 kB, avg. 23476 kB/s)
Sending initfs image (12548 kB)...
100% (12548 of 12548 kB, avg. 24038 kB/s)
Using kernel command line: "rootdelay root=/dev/ram0"
2. No LED was glowing on the device
3. Keyed in the command
Code:
/rescueOS/mass-storage-enable.sh
4. Nothing happened so also tried
Code:
sh /rescueOS/mass-storage-enable.sh
5. Pressed and held power key for 10 secs
6. Repeated above mentioned steps

Still nothing happened......

Your attempt didn't work because the keys are slightly differently mapped in rescueOS than in maemo...

Use this
Code:
flasher-3.5 -k 2.6.37 -n rescueOS-initrd-0.5.3.img  -l -b"rootdelay root=/dev/ram0 autostart=/rescueOS/mass-storage-enable.sh"
Works and the EMMC is accessible on Linux without any problems for me.
Good luck.
If you can make sure the battery is charged to a reasonable level.

No LED was glowing on the device
Normal.

Aye, I AM Linux n00b for sure. But surely I tried mounting mmcblk1p2/3 and some error occurred... I'll be reporting error line later
To mount, always use mount -t [filesystem type, e. g. vfat] [...] . I guess that's the reason.
