The ‘Open Free Fiasco Firmware Flasher’ aka 0xFFFF utility implements
a free userspace handler for the NOLO bootloader and extended features
for flashing, dumping and getting information for the Nokia Internet
Tablets. Thus it's a free alternative to Nokia's closed source flashing
utility called flasher.
Supported operations currently include, but are not limited to:
* generating and unpacking FIASCO images on local device
* editing Maemo firmware packages
* flashing any kind image type to Maemo devices via USB
* "cold" flashing for devices with bricked bootloaders
* direct kernel boot without flashing it to NAND
* changing configuration of Maemo device (R&D flags, HW revision strings, ...)
Supported are the Nokia 770, N800, N810, N810w, N900, N950 and N9.
