I try doing that but unfortunately didn't work for me it seems that when the N900 is on flashing mode the udev on my Linux box doesnt detectec it as a USB mass storage, and dont detect it at all. So the flasher timeout without locating the correct usb address.

Using Mandriva 2010 on an Acer Laptop 32bits

> [jot] Also when you start flashing flasher tries to set N900 device into flashing mode. At least for Linuxes also this works but there were some problems especially with Windows PCs that when you started flashing with Windows PC N900 did not manage to set itself to flashing mode automatically especially with eMMC (memory card) images.
> [jot] So it is safer to set N900 device manually to the flashing mode at bootup and this is why we have documented the process like this. If flashing works for you without manually enabling flashing mode that is fine.
