Fully open source flasher
Pali Rohár has reverse engineered the final piece of the puzzle to have a fully open source flasher for the N900. Cold-flashing is the process to flash NOLO bootloader when bootloader in RX51 is damaged - when normal flashing not working.
I successfully patched pusb (from omap-u-boot-utils) to send 2nd x-loader image to RX51. This was easy because protocol is same as for omap3 TI borard - only double ASIC ID reading does not working on RX51, which caused error. Full details of Pali's approach are included in the Talk thread.
Nokia Live View augmented reality available for Nokia N9
Editor: Andrew Olmsted
Nokia Live View brings augmented reality to your Harmattan device. This program uses the camera to display your surroundings and overlays points of interest using the GPS and electronic compass. Following on the success of the Live View app for Symbian, we have developed another Qt version specifically for the Nokia N9. Your editor has been wanting to try a program like this, but now I wish I had more interesting surroundings. The package is downloadable from the Beta Labs site, but as this is an early release it may still have issues.
