User:Agge/Updating the firmware/rev2/install flasher


[edit] All Systems

For Windows, Mac or Linux you can use flasher-3.5 which can be download from the tablets-dev page. This page contains all installation packages include documentation for using the flasher.


If does not work (for any reason including corrupted data and/or duplicate headers error message) use the following mirror:
see link "Command line flasher binaries are available here" (on "Maemo 5 for Nokia N900" page).

[edit] Linux PC

  1. Download the Flasher for your device model: N900, N810, N800 or 770
  2. Download the latest firmware image for your device model: N900(For UK N900 Devices: Maemo 5 UK Firmware), N810 WiMAX Edition, N810, N800, or 770 (Hacker Editions: OS2007HE, OS2008HE)
  3. If you downloaded the .deb version of the Flasher, install it with:
    sudo dpkg -i <flasher-package-name>
    If you are using 64-bit Linux, you'll need to force installation as follows:
    sudo dpkg -i --force-architecture <flasher-package-name>
  4. If you downloaded the .tar.gz version instead, you should untar it manually. The install instructions assume you have untarred it to the current directory.

[edit] GUI with 770Flasher

This is the easier of the two methods, and should be used by most people.

  1. Download the 770Flasher (yes, it will work fine for flashing an N800 or N810). Latest flashers (Linux/Mac), which work also for N900, are also available on Latest Official Maemo Development Environment Page
  2. Follow the steps above to get the appropriate firmware image.
