Now that the device is debricked, I can use the thing again and "all" my data is there, but the repository setup is back to default and the applications I want are gone, amongst other things. To re-setup:
 ssh server & keys
- Enable Extras repository: tap, tap, tap...
- Install openssh client/server package
- Install rootsh package
- Set up keys and such for easy access (my device hostname is burger):
- On laptop, ssh into the sucker:
- As root on N900, ssh to localhost as a quick/dirty way to setup /root/.ssh:
- On laptop, copy over ssh key and log back in:
scp -p ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub root@burger:.ssh/authorized_keys ssh root@burger
- To allow ssh access for user "user", the passwd file needs to be edited.
- Set a password for user "user" (I couldn't ssh in without doing this, but someone on IRC said it wasn't necessary):
- Switch user to "user" and blow out the old known_hosts (or at least edit it) to remove the now bogus "localhost" entry:
su - user rm .ssh/known_hosts
- Quick/dirty way to set up /home/user/.ssh:
- Then GTFO:
- This should work happily
 Set up Repositories
- Configure the repositories to set up things I like:
# vi /etc/apt/sources.list.d/hildon-application-manager.list deb https://downloads.maemo.nokia.com/fremantle/apps/ ./ deb https://downloads.maemo.nokia.com/fremantle/mr0 ./ deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras/ fremantle free non-free deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras-testing/ fremantle free deb http://repository.maemo.org/extras-devel/ fremantle free deb http://repository.maemo.org fremantle/tools free apt-get update
Apparently the above gets blown out if you run the hildon application manager, so the repos need to be added via tap tap tap.

Here's some configuration settings that got lost on reflash. I'm not sure where they are stored, so they need to be re-setup via tap tap tap. Note: if you do a backup on the device you may be able to then run restore which refreshes this, making the below unnecessary; untested.
The below are mostly stored in gconf under /system/osso/dsm/display, I believe these should be restored as per the back-up/restore application. - codeMonkey

echo ":syntax on" > ~/.vimrc
- Uh, where should this be put, if no bash? In ~/.profile for busybox.
- To remove the overcute hands shaking at bootup (and therefore boot faster), edit /etc/hildon-welcome.d/default.conf thusly:
You could also put in a different movie (playable by gstreamer), but a still image will not work.
