[maemo-users] N800 won't boot nor run on external power alone

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.
