Re: Folders in n900

No you're good!

Ok, you'll need a network connection for this bit.. So maybe have the browser open.. Wifi or 3G is fine

Open up the terminal and run this command

sh    submit.sh    debug.tgz

Then enter your name when prompted

Re: Folders in n900

Ok, the upload didn't work

 

you really really need an internet connection to do this!

 

If you have wifi (or 3G) it needs to be connected.. so leave the web browser open, may be at google's search page or some thing like that..

 

let's start from scratch

 

 

Lets get back to this fix:

 

On your phone open this link in the browser:

http://chris.intrepid.cx/n900/getfix.html

 

you'll see a text box with a line of code..

 

Tap into that box (but don't edit it) then press CTRL + A on your keyboard to select it all

Then press CTRL + C to copy it..

 

Now, open a terminal, tap the top of the screen where you'll see the button menu appear.. press paste

 

then  press enter on the keyboard..

 

This will download via the internet the bits you need..

 

Now.. enter this command

 

sh   fixroot.sh   debug

 

Enter your nokia forum name and press enter.. then wait for the debug to finish..

Re: Folders in n900

ah.. ok.. that's usually a good sign.. I can't see that your phone even tried to upload, though.. from the logs

Try the steps in my above post though and we'll work through, latest version of the scripts and everything.. it should work.. I've tested it on my phone and it works.. but it does require a net connection to be active.. I'll keep looking for more info

Re: Folders in n900

blah it. I'm going to wrap up ALL my scripts into one "debug.sh"

That cut and paste feature downloads three so far.. fixroot (which fixes a corrupt emmc), debug.sh which is what you're running and "submit.sh" which allows any file to be uploaded to my web server for debug purposes..

I'm going to wrap this and all the other scripts into one version... This is stuff you just can't do with any other phone..

However, needs more menus! :smileyhappy:
Not seen the upload yet
I'll keep an eye open

Re: Folders in n900

the important thing with those scripts is that they use only the minimal tools on the phone.. so even if the phone is completely wrecked, it has a good chance of running! About the most exotic thing it uses is openssl!
