Thread Starter

the nokikia n series deviceses use the maemo operating systems which are 06, 07, 08. you can upgrade yor n800 to os 2008 if you choose to but you might loose a program that you need because you can not use 07 software on the 08 OS. and you can't install older OS's on new devices.

i will be talking about the n810 with OS 08

here are some pics of the N810







so i here you say what do all these specs mean

well the weight is good it feels solid but not to heavy to hold. the slider feels strong so i dont feel like it will break

the 800x480 screen means that you can view webpages at there full width

you can hook up to a wireless network

and with bluetooth you can use a bluetooth keyboard and you can use a phone as a modem

this is going to be where i describe how to back up your configuration before updating your nokia and how to update your nokia.

Warning Before flashing
click the quote to see info on the other Nseries devices.



so im going to be doing this for the first time while writing this up for you guys. i bought mine used and every thing seams perfictly fine but i want to start fresh. and the OS needed updated too because i think it was one of the first versions.

go here for windows info but once you get every thing for windows im sure the steps will be the same.



Backing up your system

to back up your system first go to the Application menu, and select Settings > backup/restore

create a new backup and then i will be saving it to my add on memory card. you will see this screen. remember that you can only back up part of what you have not everything.



Now to start the updating

check your firmware to see if you need to update. tap on the Application menu, and select Settings > Control panel > About product.

i have version 1.2007.42-19 rite now


download linux flasher 3.0 and put in a directory where you can find it.

now you need to go to IT OS -- List of firmware images to get the most up to date firmware for your product.

to download your firmware update you must provide your 12 digit WLAN MAC address which you can find under your battery or under where you found your version number. you only have one hour to download your update after you enter your product ID.

as of rite now the most current version is 2.2007.51-3

put this file with the first one you downloaded.

Make sure the battery of your N810 is fully charged.



now to get down and dirty.

Unplug charger and switch off the Nokia N810. Connect the tablet to your computer via USB without turning it on

now on your pc change directory to where your files are saved and Execute as root (or as a normal user with rights to use the USB port)
Code:
./flasher-3.0 -F RX-44_2008SE_2.2007.51-3_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R
again just as an example i am using ubuntu
Code:
endo@endo-desktop:~$ cd /home/endo/Nokia
that changed my directory then i type
Code:
endo@endo-desktop:~/Nokia$ sudo ./flasher-3.0 -F RX-44_2008SE_2.2007.51-3_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R
you should get the message in your terminal that says "Suitable USB device not found, waiting" is displayed on the console

Now plug in the charger to switch on the N810 or switch it on using the power button WHILE holding the Home-button



IF this does not work like it didnt for me try this.

get both of the things downloaded and but somewhere that you will be able to find them

no change directory into that folder and type

Code:
chmod a+x ./flasher-3.0
then
Code:
./flasher-3.0 -u -F RX-44_2008SE_2.2007.51-3_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin
that will unpack the software.

now type
Code:
./flasher-3.0 -F RX-44_2008SE_2.2007.51-3_PR_COMBINED_MR0_ARM.bin -f -R
and you should get the message Suitable USB device not found, waiting

then you finish things up like above.
plug in the charger to switch on the N810 or switch it on using the power button WHILE holding the Home-button

Note: Nokia DOESN'T SUPPORT this procedure in ANY way. You can follow this procedure at your own risk. Neither me or Nokia have the responsibility of any damage caused to your device. this is the second way that i suggested but it is the only way i could get this to work.

now you can go in and restore all your files.

it was $400 used on ebay with an extra 4 gig memory card. i think there pretty reasonable but you can also get the N800 for less.
