Re: QEmu for Nokia770/N800?

Hi,

What I ment was qemu compiled to run on the 770/N800, to emulate a
x86-based PC. Does anybody know such a package?

Thank you in advamce, lg Clemens

Re: Blinking backlight and no sound

I wonder if it could be out of virtual memory, and removing the batter (or reflashing) is a total power down and clearing of the memory. The flashing backlight could be a warning system, instead of a useful dialog box......

Or an out of sync file system - again, removing the battery could reset it.

Ian

P.S. I'm new to this, but a software developer, so my theories could be silly......

That  sounds a lot like a problem I had about a month ago.

The N800 was left charging overnight like usual, and when waking it  
up in the morning I encountered the same blinking backlight. I did  
not play with it long enough to try to play an mp3, I just reflashed  
the device and it was back to normal.
I can't remember if I tried taking the battery out or not.

My girlfriend is also currently experiencing the same problem, but as  
she is off in europe right now I have not been able to look into it  
much.

Any idea what the problem could be? Bad battery connection, maybe?  
But that doesn't explain why reflashing my device fixed it.

SD-Card throughput of the N800?

Hello,

The 770 had terrible read and even worse write-performance to the
MMC-card, but using a patched kernel things were much better for me
:-) (reads and writes are now several mb/s).

Does anybody know how well/fast the N800 is able to read/write MMC and
SD cards? Does it have speed limitations?
Is there a difference in performance between the internal and external slot?

Thank you in advance, lg Clemens

I am not sure what is going on here with Nokia; but i am glad (i think) 
that others are having the same problems that I have been having.

As for build quality, this device is suffering.  The other night i had a 
new problem; the sound was always coming through the speakers no matter 
what i plugged into the 3.5mm socket.  I had to reboot for it to be 
rectified.

I am slowly becoming saddened and disheartened with this device.  What 
was once a pride and joy, has become a "will it or won't it work" device.

Will not be standing in line for the next Nokia device that comes out, 
thats for sure.

Actually the RD mode is only needed to more easily get root access
on the device. You can activate the RD mode with the linux commandline
flasher tool. I'm not sure how to do it in Windows.

In fact you can also do without the RD mode. You could activate the
'red pill mode' [1] in the application manager and install ssh from there.
After that you can ssh to localhost as root from the xterm or you can ssh
into your device from the PC.

Cheers,
 Juha

*NEW* Make Video Calls with the Nokia N800 (beta version)

Hi!

I may be wrong but this thread from iIT hasn't been forwarded here yet:

A new Gizmo version (4.0 beta) is available for the N800 and it includes video! Yeaaahhh!
Unfortunately, I haven't been able to test it a lot yet as:
- I don't have a 2nd N800 to test N800 to N800 calls,
- I'm not able to find any 4.0 release for a desktop PC to test N800 to PC calls.
Unless we're all wrong on iIT, this new version has been published for N800's only, not for desktop PC's yet, which is quite surprising!

See below the "official" post on gizmoproject.com (http://forum.gizmoproject.com/viewtopic.php?t=7098):
Make Video Calls using the Nokia N800 – Beta Release

We are excited to announce that we have added video calling functionality into the Gizmo Project client for the Nokia N800. Now you can see and talk to family, friends, and colleagues all over the world.

We have a beta version available for testing now, click here to try it out!

There are known issues that need to be resolved before we release this client publicly, here's a list of improvement/fixes we are currently working on:

* Limited testing has been done making calls between N800 and other Gizmo clients (i.e. Windows, Mac), we are continuing to make improvements in this area
* Video options haven't been added in yet
* Need to improve cpu usage (lowering it) without affecting video quality
* 'Hold' currently only holds audio .. needs to hold video as well.

We are going to continue improving video quality, graphics and usability over the next couple of weeks, before releasing publicly. So we would love to hear any feedback you may have.

Thank you,
The Gizmo Project Team

Feedback welcome!

It's not needed anymore. Installing becomeroot package in enough.
You can find explanations here:

You can also do it without red pill mode. Just install openssh-server

Did you see the UI still, it's not e.g. rebooting, say every 6 seconds?

Which release do you have?

Do you have any extra software installed?

(this could be D-BUS related, earlier Avahi, a Canola dependency,
was causing this kind of problems, but Avahi should be now fixed)

Device stores some state that persists over reboot, there might
be something that is cleared only when battery is removed (maybe
something related to battery management?).
