Your old device may have older bootloader, and it could be that cold
flashing (using serial cable) the device to update the bootloader would
solve the problem. But you'd need a development jig/dock for that. When
the flashing (USB) protocol has changed, sometimes it has required
bootloader update.


[jot] You should try to cold flash with USB cable to see it that helps.
[jot] See details from our flasher documentation here:http://wiki.maemo.org/Documentation/Maemo_5_Developer_Guide/Development_Environment/Maemo_Flasher-3.5

[jot] I also added new Known issues chapter to the end of the page. When you have confirmed some problem to be true (with sales HW :) add it to the Known issues list and/or write a bug report about it.

This may be related also to the fact that if I flash a device, then I
have to reboot the laptop in order to
be able to re-flash it or flash another device or flash the eMMC image.

[jot] On which operating system and PC environment this happens as I have not seen anything like this before?
