Just to update all of you: meanwhile the FR is alive again. None of tricks mentioned here cut, except replacing the apparently totally drained battery with that from a compatible Nokia phone. After booting I connected my FR to power and exchanged the batteries agaian and charging went ahead as one would expect.
So we do not really ever have a problem with our nice FR as long as there are friends around who are willing to lend a battery. greetings Eildert _______________________________________________ Openmoko community mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.openmoko.org/mailman/listinfo/community
