Flash u-boot and use Arch linux but seriously I do not know what to do next. Show your full dmesg log, maybe someone will help you.

I would try that way:
disable all r&d flags (normal operation)
flash fiasco and omit the -R option (do not boot up)
then flash vanilla also without -R option
and once again flash fiasco (this time you may use -R but it is not needed, just detach usb)

If that does not help (of course there were no errors?), I assume some hw failure.

So, what I find out (using not a virtual, but Live distribution of Ubuntu 10.10):


(1) I can do flasher-3.5 -i | so it seams, that booloader is OK. Also from Live Ubuntu I can do Cold flash with positive result (no error).
(2) I can flash FIASCO all-time with no error (kernel only, NOLO only, everything OK)


In R&D mode:
If I try to flash FIASCO (without -R) | is OK

Than I try to flash VANILLA (also no -R) | is WAITING FOR SUITABLE DEVICE for long time. No wainting helps. Flasher never catch it and is still waiting for SUITABLE DEVICE.

Than FIASCO (with, also without -R) | is OK



In classic (no R&D) mode:
If I try to flash FIASCO (without -R) | is OK

Than I try to flash VANILLA (also no -R) | is WAITING FOR SUITABLE DEVICE for long time, no wainting helps. Flasher never catch it and is still waiting for SUITABLE DEVICE.


Next informations:
If I write the command for flashing VANILLA, it is waiting for suitable device. Than connect N900 with pressed "U", flasher load informations and than the USB symbol on N900's display is missing.
If I than reconnect N900 with pressed "U", nothing happend - flasher is still in waiting mode.


What do you think, is it HW problem?

Try to flash VANILLA after FIASCO in non-R&D mode with these details:

Code:
root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu/Stažené# flasher-3.5 --disable-rd-mode
flasher v2.5.2 (Oct 21 2009)

USB device found found at bus 001, device address 013.
Found device RX-51, hardware revision 2101
NOLO version 1.4.14
Version of 'sw-release': RX-51_2009SE_20.2010.36-2_PR_MR0
The device is now in production mode
root@ubuntu:/home/ubuntu/Stažené# flasher-3.5 -F RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin -f
flasher v2.5.2 (Oct 21 2009)

Image 'mmc', size 255947 kB
	Version RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA
USB device found found at bus 001, device address 013.
Found device RX-51, hardware revision 2101
NOLO version 1.4.14
Version of 'sw-release': RX-51_2009SE_20.2010.36-2_PR_MR0
Booting device into flash mode.
Suitable USB device not found, waiting.

Also I see the problem in RescueOS with charging. When I start the charging script, it wrote some errors, that was not able to read last value. Voltage informations are all on 0 value. After a few tens of minutes N900 goes down (with battery drained). External charger charge battery to full, so it is ok.

Can it be connected with eMMC (VANILLA) flashing (status: "wating for suitable device") and means any HW problem?

Possibly you tried a downgrade?
On device is newer version of fw than of the emmc image you try to flash.
Please fetch latest version from tabletsdev.maemo.org and try again with my method.
Or give us full output of all flashing commands.

Maybe I do a downgrade, but the files seems to be the the same - in device is RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA and i try flash it with RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.13-2.VANILLA_PR_EMMC_MR0_ARM.bin.

Also it is the newest eMMC binary file which I can get on the website you post here. Do you know about newer eMMC bin, please?

Okay, just to assure: you also have the fiasco 20.2010.36-2? And used that for flashing? In order of fiasco 36, then emmc 13 and again fiasco 36?

Could you provide output of these three flashes (each without reboot), please?

I am running out of ideas else. And yes the emmc image is latest, no newer available. Flashing emmc is no downgrade, but should match the fiasco, which is the case with above numbers.

So, cold flash it cannot do, because it cannot see the device. But Vanilla cannot do, because it refuse it. After 2 minutes the device (if is in R&D mode) change on the screen - some information about kernel, product, hw-build are added (green font) and flashing with Vanilla STARTS! And ends with success.

But, the problem is stil the same - cannot boot the device, only NOKIA is shown.

Hi Jackeye, I'm Tanzanian so my Endlish is not so good but even me I have the same problem no r&d mode in my bricked N900. I have tried to flash it but last in vain because cannot enter into r&d mode. may you help me please if you have succeeded?

Try to charge on nemo mobile. Download image and write it to sd card
Code:
bzcat nemo-armv7hl-n900-mmcblk0p.raw.bz2 | dd bs=4096 | dd bs=4096 of=/dev/sdX
then download uboot and flash it to n900
Code:
./flasher-3.5 -f -F u-boot-2012.10-rc3-1+zImage-2.6.28-omap1.fiasco

This may be some silly question...
Did you wait a couple of minutes while the N900 boots after the complete flash for the system to take its time to, may be, check file systems and optify the system once?
