I recieved some updates yesterday thinking it was pr1.3 i backed all my stuff up (thank god) now it won't turn on. Nokia lights up n goes off then on then off etc... Would somebody please be so kind and tell me exactly where and what to download in order to flash my phone back to factory. I haven't done it before so step by step would really be appreciated. I'm using windows 7 and my phone was pr1.2 (vodafone) Thanks very much in advance

How does one "Flash" the phone? I've heard this being done on many threads. But could not imagine how it's done. Is there a step by step guide?

Try...

Remove the battery from your N900.

Better yet, charge it fully with some external charger.

Plug the battery back on after at least 5 minutes.

Turn it on.

Good luck.

By the way, whats the difference between global and uk? I noticed after imei number when you get the choice of stuff that theres pr1.3 global! can i use that instead of waiting for my update through vodafone?
Also which one of these do i download as instructions state there's only one?....

RX-51_2009SE_1.2009.41-1.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin

or....

RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin

I'm assuming the second one?

That's a Vanilla image, that will erase your entire storage files pics vids etcetera. Even if you have done a back up on the phone application. You'll loose it all. Id sugest not using the Vanilla Images 1st, unless you dont care, then flash away
