Please tell me how to flash N900.

I have downloaded and installed flasher 3.5 on windows XP.. I have downloaded and copied the latest firmware and copied it to the flasher directory.

I run the mobile on Flasher mode and I can see the USB icon on top right corner with Nokia written in centre of screen

When I give the command as specified in directory, it gives %m.. I dont know whts is that?? Following is the copy of commands and response from command prompt of Win Xp

D:\Program Files\maemo\flasher-3.5>flasher-3.5 -F RX-51_2009SE_3.2010.02-8.003_P
R_COMBINED_003_ARM.bin -f -R
flasher v2.5.2 (Sep 24 2009)

RX-51_2009SE_3.2010.02-8.003_PR_COMBINED_003_ARM.bin: %m

D:\Program Files\maemo\flasher-3.5>flasher-3.5 -F RX-51_2009SE_3.2010.02-8.003_P
R_COMBINED_003_ARM -f -R

read the wiki on how to do it. There is no short cut here.

Better yet, read the guide found on Maemocentral.com
Follow those instructions, they are easier to follow...but use the code on the Maemo Wiki guide, as the code on Maemocentral is not 100% correct

run the flasher first before connecting usb to ur device,,

when you r in cmd prompt hold 'u" button on ur n900 and connect the usb . ull get a vibration followed by nokia logo and usb connected logo, release the "u" key and execute ur command!

that trick worked for me,, if it fails try another machine

May I ask, what version of Windows, MAC or Linux are you using?

if you are using windows 32bits then you may want to install LibUSB

http://wiki.maemo.org/Flasher

from there link above, else you will get an error while trying to do it.

Turn off the device completely and slide the Keyboard out. Plug the usb in and press U while running the command line. Don't let go of U until it is detected by the windows.
