I wanted to update my Nokia N810 at home this weekend dunno why I suppose its one of those things you just do. Anyway I plugged in the USB cable pressed the swap button and powered on, up came the little USB logo which should me you’re good to go.

On to the PC and started the Nokia update software, “Cannot find device” huh? Unplug the USB cable and the Nokia’s Maemo software boots now here’s the interesting bit plug the cable back in and the PC see’s it?

N810I must have tried six or seven times but gave up so I brought all the cables and stuff to work, downloaded the updater software, installed on my works PC plugged in the cable pressed the swap key and the power key. USB logo, start the updater software… Bingo! Worked first time so what’s all that about then?

The only thing I can think is that something on my machine at home is blocking the N810 the only downside now is I have to re-install all the applications that the update nukes! Of course I had a backup but that’s just for settings ect I don’t believe it backs up the actual applications.

All in all was it worth it? Probably not!
