Yes, Ryan got it right. It was given given to a friend of mine directly
by Nokia. As someone else mentioned using the RX-34 and RX-44 images is
not an option[1]. In any case, I can't even access them on
tablets-dev.nokia as it says my ID (MAC address) is invalid. And the
windows tool comes up empty, and asks for a binary.

I guess all I need is an updated image, if that is possible with this
device. I've contacted Nokia directly and I'm waiting to hear back.
