hello. I just bought a nokia n900 (from witch i am typing right now) second hand (but is like new).
-first i want to do a memory cleanup to delete all previos user data (pictures,contacts,etc)
-second i want to root the device (i had a nokia e90 before witch i use to hack)
-i want to install multiboot to run meego, android, power kernel (my phone has v20.2010.36-2)
-i want to apply speed patch,battery patch, overclock,etc.

I dont know where to start, what to do first.I don't want to break something. I wait your advices.
Thanks in advance

You can't break anything physically, you can only loose data and your time (well, excessive overclocking could damage your hardware)
This should take care of any data on the phone (flashing the whole memory).
rooting the device is super easy, check the wiki for 'root', 'extra' and 'devel'.
then you can play with the rest (see their respective wiki/threads)

is there any way to clean memory without flashing? (i don't have acces to a computer right now).
And another stupid question: if i have firmware v20.2010.36-2 that means i have pr 1.3 right?
I am really shame to ask this but how do i select the text to copy/paste using the built in browser?

To select text in the microB browser, slide in from off the left-hand side of the screen to just on the screen. An arrow icon will appear. Tap it, and you will then be able to select text in the browser as if with a mouse on a PC (i.e. click and drag to select text). Ctrl-C copies to the clipboard. Repeat the slide-and-tap-icon process to go back to normal mode.

If my explanation is deficient, please post back here and I or someone will try to help further.

PR information can only be found out if you visit the firmware downloads page on tablets-dev.nokia website.

I would advise warning on overclocking as you will shorten the life of your device, may make the device unusable at times. Even after overclocking and you have decided to stick with the normal speeds your device may not behave normally like it used to.

Its sad to see another quality N900 been laid to waste, just make sure to not buy it from this owner if he ultimately sells an overclocked (and now unusable) device.

That's PR1.3, the last one Nokia released, but if you want updates there is the Community SSU, which provides bug fixes and new features developed by the community.

Go into the settings, then open the menu, and you have it there...
This will remove a lot of personal data but it wont wipe it as good as a reflash would have done.
