Re: Nokia 770 OS

By downloading all the repositories on gronmayer, I was able to install fbreader. Thanks.
Downloading the FBReader repository alone would not work.

Anyway, I'm ok now. Thanks again.

Re: Nokia 770 OS

I've tried with the catalog and the individual deb files so far. The N810 had no problem installing through the catalog. I'll keep trying until something works. I've used FBReader on the 770 for...

Re: Nokia 770 OS

Just received the Ebay N800 today. It is like new, in the original box. I like this much better than the N810. It is more like a 770 on steroids.

It detects my wlan. Flashed with OS2008 and...

Re: Nokia 770 OS

Thanks. And the pictures really help. I won't cannibalize the good N810 at all. If I can't replace the usb I will just switch the motherboards. I don't know if there is any advantage with a WiMax...

Re: Nokia 770 OS

I've found several articles dealing with repairing the usb on the Nokia N900, nothing on the N810. Seems these things are surface mounted and difficult or impossible to replace. Given that you...

Re: Nokia 770 OS

I would like to 1st try to replace the usb, 2nd swap the parts, but haven't found any instructions on taking the thing apart. There's always the challenge of trial and error. :confused:

Re: Nokia 770 OS

Your mentioning cloning to a SD card and liking puzzles is interesting. One of the two (A) N810's I bought is like new, but has a bad micro usb port. The other (B) is kinda rough, but works...

Re: FBReader

Yeah. sometimes it finds my wlan, sometimes it doesn't. Even when it does, it disconnects. I've already changed my router mode to "G", as it doesn't like "N". I've read many posts about this.

Re: FBReader

You're right, as usual. Downloaded:

ZLibrary 0.8.17 package
FBReader 0.8.17 package

and installed on OS2007HE, personalized keys and good to go.

Re: FBReader

I'm just surprised that the FBReader download files for the different OS's don't include it.

Re: Nokia 770 OS

Just received my N810, not a scratch on it.
It has OS800HE already installed.
It connects to the internet, unlike the 770.
I get numerous "Secure connection" messages. Any cure for that?
Also,...

Re: Nokia 770 OS

I'm definitely going through your stuff.
Also just bought an N810 on Ebay.

Will I need to format the SD card for the N800?
Will I need to do anything to use 64GB card?
