Re: N800 won't boot nor run on external power alone

2007-04-02 Thread Jose Antonio Vacas Martinez

I got exactly the same white screen reboot loop. Last Friday night I
installed the updated (including the magic.sys package) then reboot and got
the reboot loop when the power jack is pulged.

5 hours rebooting later I flashed the n800 with the new firmware and now
everything working.

Cheers

 One thing I did notice is that if I remove the battery, it will not
power up from the charger alone.  That looks like a problem, even if it
doesn't completely explain why I see the reboot loop: If the power jack were
bad, how many hours should it take for the  battery run to down and fail to
power up the screen?  Mine could have been white-screen on the charger for a
day or two.

 Anyhow, are other N800s unable to run from charger power alone?  Could
the power jack be part of this N800's boot problem?

Probably not, it's not meant to do that.

You could try setting the device to RD mode with Flasher.  If the
device then boots up, please take a backup of the device (using
the Backup application) and flash the latest release to the device.
All found/known reboot issues are are fixed in the latest release.

 not power up from the charger alone.  That looks like a problem,

If the device still doesn't boot up completely with the RD mode,
it should then at least be able to charge the battery (when you plug
in charger when the device is powered off) so that you can safely
flash the latest release.
