[maemo-users] N810 not booting, flashing fails

I just bought an N810 but after playing around with it for one day it  
suddenly behaved strange. When I tried to connect to my new wireless  
access point I could not type in the encryption key and then suddenly  
the device rebooted.

But ... when the Nokia screen is shown the progress bar is progressing  
and when it is almost at the end the device reboots and keeps  
rebooting in this way forever.
I downloaded flasher_3.0 and the flash image from maemo.org but  
flashing fails.

After connecting the N810 via USB and switching it on (with the key on  
the left side pressed) I get a message telling me the current software  
version is 50.2 and then flasher exits (I started flasher as root,  
using ./flasher3.0 imagefile -f -R as given on the flash update page  
at maemo.org).

I retried by now it seems there is no software in the N810 anymore?

What am I doind wrong? (or should I return the N810 to the shop ASAP ?)
