The Maemo Flasher-3.5 Tool is a command line utility that supports N800, N810 and N810 Wimax devices with Maemo Diablo 4.1.x platform releases and coming NXXX device with Maemo Fremantle 5.x platform release. Notice that older Maemo devices (like Nokia 770) and Maemo platform releases may require a specific flasher tool.

Flasher-3.5 is run from a Linux, Windows or Mac host computer, and it will send data and commands to the connected Maemo device over USB. Command line parameters supported by flasher-3.5 together with some usage examples are documented in Help.txt file available from installation packages. Flasher-3.5 binary gives also command line help if it is run without any parameter or with "--set-rd-flags" or " --clear-rd-flags" parameters.


The Maemo Flasher-3.5 Tool should be installed from the installation package provided for Debian based Linuxes, Windows XP/Vista and Mac OS X. For other than Debian based Linux distributions also compressed tar file is provided. 

Installation of Maemo Flasher-3.5 requires administration rights in all supported operating systems.
