(2) On your Linux PC
REPLACE AND THINK
flasher-3.5 -k zImage -n initrd.img -l -b"rootdelay root=/dev/ram0"
DO NOT SIMPLY FOLLOW THIS EXAMPLE

HOWTO possibly FIND N900 FIRMWARE RX-51 ON THE WEB

First, you might want to read this as well:
(a) HOWTO possibly recover MYDOCS from N900 using rescueOS
(b) HOWTO possibly FIND N900_FIRMWARE_RX-51 ON THE WEB
(c) HOWTO possibly flash N900 and get it maybe get it working again


(0) Have flasher-3.5 installed
download Package (DEB,...) for your Linux System

Alternatively here:
http://web.archive.org/web/201311170...env_downloads/


(1) Download Firmware - Images and MD5SUMS (EXAMPLE ONLY for global version)


DOWNLOAD md5sums
http://web.archive.org/web/201311170...a_N900/MD5SUMS

N900 VANILLA FIRMWARE (eMMC)
http://web.archive.org/web/201311170...ev/nokia_N900/
follow to LATEST VANILLA and download
http://web.archive.org/web/201311170...MC_MR0_ARM.bin

VANILLA version completely empties your device (SO NO MYDOCS ANYMORE, all GONE ...)
flashing VANILLA always REQUIRES COMBINED THEREAFTER (without reboot)


N900 COMBINED FIRMWARE (rootfs)
http://web.archive.org/web/201311170...ev/nokia_N900/
follow to LATEST COMBINED and download
http://web.archive.org/web/201311170...ED_MR0_ARM.bin

(alternatively there is an unofficial 38 version WITH MD5SUMS FROM THREAD
