I wanted to update my Nokia 770 with the latest root image, so I flashed the device as described at maemo.org.
Everything went well, but it did kill all the changes I had made to the system. The 770 was for all practical purposes reset to factory default. Only the memory card was unchanged.
Note to self: do try the backup/restore utility the next time!
Output from the flashing process below the fold Don’t forget to check the MD5 checksums of your downloads. You probably don’t want a faulty image flashed to your (almost) brand new Nokia 770.
