(happended in the first 5 minutes i bought mine,and nobody helped me figured it out, i just search,search,search). You guys wanted everything in your plate. Search,study,learn
Your device become "brick", thats the way they call it. You have to unbrick it. Download the "RX-51_2009SE_10.2010.19-1....bin
You need a PC (XP recommended)
Here are the steps :
1.Download and install the latest version of Flasher e.g. maemo_flasher-3.5_18.104.22.168.exe
2.Download the latest firmware (.bin) file and save it to %ProgramFiles%\maemo\flasher-3.5\ (the default installation path for Flasher) or to the custom path of your choice.
3.Ensure the battery is at least half full.
4.Unplug charger cable and switch off the device.
5.Open the Command Prompt (Start then Run ) and type cmd then press Enter.
6.Change the directory to the Flasher's path
7.Hold the u key on the keyboard and connect the USB cable at the same time
2.Run the following command
flasher-3.5.exe -F RX-51_2009SE_2.2009.51-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R
(Replace RX-51_2009SE_2.2009.51-1_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin with the firmware you wish to update)
The update will take approximately 4 minutes after which the N900 will reboot and display the Welcome Screen with Regional settings
You can do it by yourself...

I only see nokia letter a while and screen go off, I need to take out batt again and restart press power button, lcd light on , nokia letter but not hand shack picture and HP go off again,
An interesting observation-
Even though N900 has not been marketed well as Iphone4, still the number of hits for N900 are way higher than IP4, Samsung Galaxy S and Wave, X10 a little higher.......they all have been too much in news
N8 is close to N900 in terms of number of hits but it has not been released yet. People are really crazy about N8.
No comparison between phones is intended nor a bias towards any brand. I was just checking out the hits and thought of sharing it.
I would like to highlight something pertaining to the battery life. I guess these things might depend on the surrounding conditions like temperature etc.
When I was in India, my battery could last max 24 hours even if making very few calls.
I have landed in LA and have my international roaming activated. The battery is just awesome now. I myself could not believe but it lasted for more almost 3.5 days and nights. This is absolutely fantastic and in this process I have watched videos over an hour at maximum brightness...continuously receiving sms, almost 10 and 5-6 calls a day which I am not picking due to international roaming but anyways all this consumes battery.
Is it because of the change of place or something else, I am not sure but these are startling results for me. You can find my posts where I have asked about prolonging battery usage.
Hope this could help people here.
I am very very happy now :) and hence thought of sharing with all geeks here.
i think this phone is having a 800mhz processor and it can overclock to 1ghz
This is a brilliant phone. Just want to know about the GPS /Ovi maps. Does it work the same as the N82 (easy)
Ive downloaded the latestNokai Ovi Suite and there is a pop up that states my phone does not support GPS and voice guidence. According to the reviews it supports all that + ovi maps. What is the difference between the two. hopefully someone can assit me. Thanks guys

I love this phone especially skype & Gtalk video,Gtranslate very useful when oversea,now I really in trouble.
Ok, the two main reasons I purchased this phone was:
a) Adobe Flash support.
b) The massive internal 32GB of built in memory.
I'm finding the flash player is OK for the most part. I was able to play a few Facebook flash based games and only had minimal slowdown.
One gripe is that of the 32GB of onboard memory, about 5GB of that is taken up by the system and about 1 and a half GB is for installing apps, so you are left with around 25, 26GB to play around with.
I'm also finding that when I'm moving or copying large amount of files in one go, from device to memory card, this can take forever. (I did this with around 100 MP3's and it took around 20 mins to do).
Otherwise I love the phone.
The default browser is awesome and I can scroll through java script windows like they were on a static screen. (FB friends list window is one example)
The browser is able to sense this.
Hi, if someone pass a file using bluetooth to your n900, will these file save to inbox like on a symbian os nokia phone or directly to gallery?

Before the major update,when we all bought our N900's, you saw hundrends of comments asking from Nokia a portrait mode. As soon as the PR1.2 came, and had portrait mode, especialy Internet Browser, nobody talks about it. Complete silence. Its like never happened. Now, they are trying to configure other stories,just to take down the good reputation of this Monster. To all Companies that terrorfied by N900. Don't run to avoid Nokia cause you are going to die tired!!!
P.S: I've got the power!
