I was unable to use my FR until today meaning I could only access my boot menu before. How and why I was able to do that is a mystery to me. I had to literally go thru every command and flash every thing. Nothing worked except a couple of .bin flashes that ended the download in progress with a notice on my phone screen saying, "End of write Exceeds Partition end" Download Error-110. First of all does anybody know what that means? Secondly, I guess I cannot complain since I'm at least able to make and recieve calls now.
Now my question is how do I gain access to my phone's Terminal in a realistic manner. I can get there from the phone But, There is no slash.. ie. /, That makes it very hard to enter any code. Second, there was a point in my trouble shooting that the terminal root system came up on my linux system as root at om-gta02. That would be a great place to program the phone from but how do I get there from my host system? I will keep learning linux from the books I have but I have not found the way to get there yet. Does anyone know the short cut code? Now the only way I can start my phone is to go through the boot menu and enter the boot option.
To finish, I've looked at the downloads for Qtopia in the hopes of flashing a keyboard that is realistically usable. There are many downloads there including one the requires 2.1M. My question also concerns the original error message -110 above. It is my understanding that if I did not have enough room to flash 1.7M and the largest partition on the phone is 2M that I could not use a file that is even larger. Does that mean I need to use my SD card for the download of Qtopia?
