After using the Samsung Galaxy S3 for a couple of months, it broke and I had to send it in for guarantee. Perfect for re-doing some N900 stuff! So I got this N900 from a friend of mine, and installed CSSU T7.1, Power-kernel 51r1 and, after succesfully doing that, installed this latest CSSU Thumb2 thingy. After this, the device refuses to restart. I later on found out my friend had installed multi-boot, which works, and presents me with one option: '1 - Meamo 2.6.26-omap1'. After selecting this, the device doesn't even reach the 5 dots, but boot-loops until I remove the battery.

I know, should've taken more precautions etc., but I couldn't find the answer to this one simple question: now what? Just reflash?

You can load kernel-power with flasher (don't ask in this thread how to do it, look in wiki page) and remove multiboot, and maybe reinstall kernel-power, just in case.

No it wouldn't. It's like curing from acne through decapitating.

if i was away from my N900 for a long time, i would first of all reflash it and start from scratch.
makes sense and it is kinda fun

but there are other ways, yes. to each his own : )

Thanks for your quick answer.

Is not multi-boot (didnt find it) is bootmenu, ┐is the same thing? Is it safe?

Sorry to bother people, i'm kind of messy lately, i've been breaking things for not paying enough attention to simple details (kinda too tired) and the last thing i want to break is my phone but i would like to give a chance to make it faster or a bit more agile..

This is what i have...
