NAME
       0xFFFF - Open Free Fiasco Firmware Flasher, version 0.8


SYNOPSIS
       0xFFFF [options]


DESCRIPTION
       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-gen.

Input image specification:
       -M file

              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

EXAMPLES
       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
