I can't remember to install lot of software or put other files on the
internal flash before this incident. Normally I try to keep the internal
flash (the system flash) clean and save stuff on mmc1 and mmc2. Of
course I am not 100% sure, that the system flash isn't full.

I tried this. I used a full charged battery and let the N810 try to boot
the whole night. It's just an infinite loop: Nokia logo - blank screen -
Nokia loge - battery symbol - Nokia logo ....

How can I reflash it, when I don't have access to the device. just for a
short period (1s) the USB-logo appears. Is it enough for reflash?

Thanks for you help.
