Playing with my n800

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 might make a better match for the n800, but I thought the twin pics funnier :p
