Re: N800 locks screen in 2s, no sound

Ya, I noticed the clock/sync message. Wondered if that's normal. I guess not. But I already have the os on sd and was getting the same problem. If fact, it was booting from sd when I noticed the...

Re: N800 locks screen in 2s, no sound

I've still got a hardly useful N800 locking up. I've reflashed from scratch with the 3.5 Windows flasher. Wiped Fanoush's initfs boot of course.

What is left???? Anybody????

Re: N800 locks screen in 2s, no sound

Incidently (and thus the subject update),the sound is also non-functional. I forgot to check that after reinstalling at first.

Thought I should mention that too, in case it gives an idea.

Re: N800 locking screen/keys in 2 seconds

Actually, autolocking is disabled.
I tried turning it on to 5 minutes & off, I tried changing keylock on the display control panel, tried rebooting in between, etc. Still no change.

Re: N800 locking screen/keys in 2 seconds

My understanding was that everything that could be is done by default on flasher 3.5 (in Windows as least), but I'm not sure: there wasn't any option to do one or the other.

Looks very interesting! Tried it on your tablet yet?

Urm. We have to use Mercurial source control to get it... I know nothing about that.

Re: uising a scanner

I've thought of this kind of thing before too, and it sounds great!

I know there's a Palm Treo program that does it too. Hmm... I wonder if it would work on the Garnet emulator?

Re: ZAGG invisibleSHIELD Screen Protectors - Avoid!

I was wondering how the touch is with these?
I was going to get one but was afraid they might be too thick to still be responsive.
