Playing with my n800

on Monday, February 05, 2007

I'm happily playing with my new Nokia n800 - affectionately named, by me, "Transistor". It's a slick little thing (well, no so little, but then again, it's mostly screen), but I think someone got sold that transistor radio designs from the 60s are all the rage. The n800 even has the traditional dotted grid. I mean, just look!



Coincidence? I think not!

But once I started tinkering with it, I forgot all about that :)

I'm tapping away at it's settings and installing stuff just to see what it can do. And since I predict a future where my little Transistor will bork dramatically for some reason, I'll just leave a note to self here when I need to reflash the thing.

Reflashing the n800 - How-to

And if it gets stuck in a reboot loop:

./flasher --set-rd-flags=no-lifeguard-reset
./flasher --clear-rd-flags=no-lifeguard-reset --disable-rd-mode

Picture one from http://www.transistor.org/collection/northamerican/noram3.html. http://www.transistor.org/collection/channelmaster/chmstr10.html might make a better match for the n800, but I thought the twin pics funnier :p
