[maemo-developers] [maemo-developers] 770 stopped booting

Hi all,

today my 770 stopped working. It starts booting with the Nokia logo but
something happens before it comes to the point where the "blue bar"
appears. Apparently it restarts a couple of times before giving up and
switching off (Nokia logo fades away).

I did not install new packages recently (within several days), certainly
not since my last n770 reboot.
I shut down the unit properly last night after some pdf reading when I
went to bed.

So I /really/ wonder how anything could distort the boot process that
hard? I presume if I were a normal customer, this would be the point to
return the unit as defective :-/

The unit had the r&d flag enabled.

Things I tried:

* setting no-lifeguard-reset flag
* reflashing initfs
* disabling r&d mode
* removing the memory card while booting.
* removing the battery for an extended period of time (>15 minutes)

all of which did not help. Before I reflash the whole thing and lose
everything installed I'd like to ask if there are any other ideas worth
trying to recover the unit.

kind regards,
