       0xFFFF - Open Free Fiasco Firmware Flasher, version 0.6.1


       0xFFFF [options]


       0xFFFF  is  Open Free Fiasco Firmware Flasher for Maemo devices. It support generating and
       unpacking FIASCO images on local computer. Useful for editing Maemo firmware  package  for
       future  flash.  It support via USB flashing any image type to Maemo device and also "cold"
       flashing which means flashing dead device with erased bootloader.  There  is  support  for
       booting  kernel  via USB without flashing to NAND and also changing configuration of Maemo
       device (enable/disable R&D mode, changing HW revision strings, ...).

       0xFFFF is alternative  tool  to  proprietary  Nokia  flasher-3.5  and  fiasco-gen.  0xFFFF
       generate compatible FIASCO images and also accept FIASCO images generated by Nokia fiasco-


       -b [cmdline]

Device configuration:

       -I     identify, show all information about device

       -D 0|1|2
              change root device: 0 - flash, 1 - mmc, 2 - usb

       -R 0|1 disable/enable R&D mode

       -F flags
              change R&D flags, flags are comma separated list, can be empty

       -H rev change HW revision

       -N ver change NOLO version string

       -K ver change kernel version string

       -T ver change initfs version string

       -S ver change SW release version string

       -C ver change content eMMC version string

Input image specification:

       -M file
              specify fiasco image

       -m arg specify normal image
              arg is [[[dev:[hw:]]ver:]type:]file[%lay]
              dev is device name string (default: empty)
              hw are comma separated list of HW revisions (default: empty)
              ver is image version string (default: empty)
              type is image type (default: autodetect)
              file is image file name
              lay is layout file name (default: none)

Image filters:

       -t type
              filter images by type

       -d dev filter images by device

       -w hw  filter images by HW revision

Fiasco image:

       -u [dir]
              unpack fiasco image to directory (default: current)

       -g file[%sw]
              generate fiasco image with SW rel version (default: no version)

Other options:

       -i     identify images

       -s     simulate, do not flash or write on disk

       -n     disable hash, checksum and image type checking

       -v     be verbose and noisy

       -h     show this help message

R&D flags:

              disable auto reboot by OMAP watchdog

              disable auto reboot by external watchdog

              disable auto reboot by software lifeguard

              enable serial console

              disable usb timeout for flashing

              enable sti console

              disable battery charging

              force omap boot reason to power key

       RX-34  Nokia N800

       RX-44  Nokia N810

       RX-48  Nokia N810 Wimax

       RX-51  Nokia N900

Supported image types:


Supported connection protocols:

       Local on device
       NOLO via USB
       Cold flashing via USB


       Via USB:

       Identify device:
       $ 0xFFFF -I

       Load kernel & initfs and boot it with cmdline:
       $ 0xFFFF -m initfs:<file> -m kernel:<file> -l -b "<cmdline>"

       Flash kernel and reboot:
       $ 0xFFFF -m kernel:<file> -f -r

       Flash FIASCO image and reboot:
       $ 0xFFFF -M <file> -f -r

       Flash only kernel from FIASCO image and reboot:
       $ 0xFFFF -M <file> -t kernel -f -r

       Cold-Flash 2nd and secondary bootloaders:
       $ 0xFFFF -m 2nd:<file> -m secondary:<file> -c

       On device (need nanddump from mtd-utils):

       Dump all images to current directory:
       $ 0xFFFF -e

       Dump all images to one FIASCO file:
       $ 0xFFFF -E <file>

       FIASCO packaging:

       Show FIASCO image content:
       $ 0xFFFF -M <file> -i

       Unpack FIASCO image to current directory:
       $ 0xFFFF -M <file> -u

       Generate new FIASCO image image.fiasco from files xloader.bin,  nolo.bin,  zImage,  rootfs
       and  append  device&version  information  (xloader  for  RX-51 hw revision: 2101 and 2102,
       version 1.0)
       $ 0xFFFF -m RX-51:2101,2102:1.0:xloader:xloader.bin -m RX-51:2101,2102:1.0:secondary:nolo.bin -m 2.6.28:kernel:zImage -m rootfs -g image.fiasco
