Let me start off by saying I just got a Nokia N900 so I am a complete beginner.

Sorry if I am missing something but I attempted to try and get the u-boot-flasher and everything installed via apt-get install and Hildon Application Manager

Via Hildon Application Manager I receive "!!!U-Boot with Kernel 2.6.28-omap1 breaks the 3rd party package policy" and check the details and its complaining about my kernel-modules

via apt-get install u-boot-flasher I get:

The following packages have unmet dependencies:
u-boot-flasher: Depends: kernel-modules (= 2.6.28-20103103+0m5) but 2.6.28-20101501+0m5 is to be installed
E: Broken packages

According to dpkg my kernel-modules version is 2.6.28-20101501+0m5

So how do I get my kernel-modules updated to 2.6.28-20103103+0m5?

All steps were described at the top of this post, the only problem was to find
the package: sdk-fiasco-gen
As soon as i had this package installed - it was not so complicated.
I noticed your advice and disabled cssu-devel in my Repos.

Now i have this items in U-Boot-Menu:

Kernel- (default boot entry)
U-Boot with attached Kernel- (Internal NAND)
U-Boot 2013.04-2

Ok i can't go back to the stock PR1.3 kernel-2.6.28-omap1 but i think, i can leave without it.

Thank you for your help !
Hi @explit,

Will it be possible to share the uboot binary you had compiled with attached cssu kernel. I am facing the same issue as posted by you.

my N900 broke (GSM modem) and so I got a new one. I say new because its seems to be not used. But the former owner installed U Boot and some other random stuff.
He is not sure what he has done because it was three years ago.
So I want to revert to the stock kernel and then intall kernel power like before on my broken phone.
Now when I try to do the "open keyboard press u start the phone" thing I get the U Boot menu.
How do I proceed? Tried to find the info in this thread but with 80 pages I might have missed it.

EDIT: I am stupid. I should not press the power button while pressing U. I thought I had to. Just pressing U and connecting the USB works...
