    how to reformat emmc


    I have a big problem that I need your help in solving...
    About a month ago I bought a new Mini PC from gearbest Chinese store, it came with windows 8.1 and android 4.4 installed and since it has arrived i have got blue screen errors. i have had many support emails with gearbest and the most i could get out of them was a $28 refund from a $95 PC. At the time I took it as the errors seem to of disappeared. Recently the errors have come back and it seems to be worse as in freezing while in the middle of something, I reported this again and said that I know want the full refund as the situation has made the PC become unusable and they refused. I decided to open a dispute with PayPal in hopes they can get my money back (PayPal has always been great to me in refunding me in the past).
    I then wanted to take the matter in my own hands and try to get into the BIOS and reformat, maybe this will help or maybe it won't. I have a Windows 10 installation on a USB drive that I stuck in the PC and got BIOS to boot from it and it just ignored this and went straight to windows 8 startup. I went back in the BIOS and looked at the settings for the EMMC and disabled it and restarted but it went straight into BIOS without looking at the USB so I re-enabled EMMC and it does the same thing booting straight into BIOS. It looks like the EMMC is wiped so I need to install a copy of Windows on it but how?
    Any suggestions guys and congratulations if you managed to follow this *Wink

    :)

    Dropped N900 and now get 'operation temporarily disabled due to low memory' message

    You are right, I had to put in a microSD card in order to spool the dmesg output to it for sending to you.



    It is a shame that just dropping the device would break the internal storage like this. Is there really no other option to restore the emmc like reformatting or the like?

    Have I Bricked my N900?

    Hi Kevin.



    Firstly, don't panic. It's almost impossible to brick the N900, unless you physically damage it in some way.



    Secondly, the N900, as you've found out, hates being flashed to an older firmware.



    Thirdly, flashing the EMMC isn't strictly needed. The EMMC flash was only needed on N900s that were handed out to developers at the launch party. So unless you've got one of these early devices and depending how much you've hacked it, the EMMC isn't all
    that inportant where flashing is confirmed.



    Try re-flashing to the global 20.2010.36-2 without the EMMC flash and see how you get on.
