I flashed my Calypso using the image from http://people.openmoko.org/joerg/calypso_moko_FW/moko11/
All went seemingly OK, as after a while the friendly green "DONE" showed up.
Since then however, I (nor my freerunner) have not been able to access the SIM anymore.
I tried repeating the flashing procedure, with the same result. Now I paid attention to the blue output as well, which showed I was trying to flash an identical firmware (http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/GSM/Flashing#Hints,
"In some case you may receive this:
(fluid, version 3) ok
Checksumming (269 * 8kB = 2152kB): ok
Flash Detect: (0xEC, 0x22A0) Samsung K5A3240CT ok
Program: (0 sectors, 0*8k=0k) () ok
My output's a bit different though: it says fluid, version 2.27.
I am a bit hesitant now to continue and follow the instructions for a manual firmware download, since this fluid business is so picky on the syntax.
Any advice on how to continue from here?
