zaheed, 09 Mar 2010well i already did that but still no luck.
how can i hard reset this thing?how you doin zaheed
i see you wanna do a hard reset. had to do this myself as soon as i got mine. i reckon some cheeky git must have been messin with it before i got it. kept coming up "internal error application closed" for every application that is. did a software update hoping for a miricle.....bricked it!! wouldn't even turn.
had to do a fair bit of forum surfing and found the answer.
you need "maemo flasher" for a start
and through that you have to install the eMMC and then the lastest firmware. this is all done via the cmd window sadly. very quick and efficiant though man.
if you need any more info mate let me know. i've got the pages saved on my pc just in case it all went pair shaped again. that was months ago now, working like a dream.
if you dont do both one after the other it aint gonna work.

CC, 09 Mar 2010Save all your data if you can and then do a factory reset.well i already did that but still no luck.

Nokia make documents to go free for N900 users in the next firmware update.
i cant believe we pay a bundle of $$$ and we get the document to go trial for 30 days lol
this is not fair Nokia.
Sean, 08 Mar 2010Simply the best phone i have used. the only negative is the battery life.hi Sean,
My battery life with my N900 is up to 24Hrs. im connected to WIFI or GPRS for 10 hours/day (for emails, surfing, updload and some downloads), i use music, talk normal time not more than an hour/day, GPS not more than an hour/day.
i recharge it every night. i mean this is good for such usage and such a device.
Anonymous, 01 Jan 1970It seems to me that the battery backup is the only issue with this mobile, everything else is as good as it can get.
Hey does anyone have the N900 in Chennai or in India ?
I basically wana know how it works to message and stuff ?
Maemo is a relatively new software, so im a little apprehensive before buying it as no other fone runs on Maemo.
So if someone has used it, can u please tell me how the overall feel is ?
I tried out the Windows software, and really dint like it.
Im looking at buying this phone or the Samsung I8910. Please suggest!
can anyone please help me?
last night my phone hanged while installing a program and then i turned it off, but after that it didn't turn on for 12 hours, only showed "installing updates don't interrupt"
but suddenly it started working.
but now i have a serious problem: i cannpt install or uninstall any new program and i can't even update the old ones. i have almost 1gb memory left in rootf but it says "unable to update/install"
oh i forgot to mention here that after my phone started working i factory reseted it once using the button in settings menu.
please help anyone.
thanks in advance.
ive come from the n97 to this n900 and i must say.. im amazed by the phone.. everything is perfect abt it, but im with you sean, battery life could be much better.. buuut, its the best mobile out, so who cares?
