This is my first post to this list. I've done my best to search google  
and other resources but they all end up dry. Hopefully somebody can  
help me.

I have an iPAQ 3600. I starting to install RedBoot on it (all files  
from http://sources.redhat.com/ecos/boards/redbootbins/ipaq/) and ran  
into some problems. Basically I tried to use the LCM keypad and since  
it wasn't calibrated correctly I mistyped a command. I'm sorry but I  
don't know exactly which command it was. I didn't save the output. Then  
I tried to retype the first command (lo -r -b 0x100000 redboot_ROM.bin)  
and this also caused more errors. Basically along the lines of it  
cannot format. So I re-flashed my device by downloading the flash  
install from HP. This worked fine. I figured I could now try to install  
RedBoot again. Here is my (unfortunate) output:
+FLASH: 0x50000000 - 0x51000000, 64 blocks of 0x00040000 bytes each.
FLASH configuration checksum error or invalid key
... Waiting for network card: ..........No network interfaces found

RedBoot(tm) bootstrap and debug environment - built 09:51:53, Jun 22

RAM: 0x00000000-0x02000000, 0x0004f000-0x01fb0000 available

I figured maybe I could proceed so I just entered the first command  

(lo -r -b 0x100000 redboot_ROM.bin)
and here is the output:
RedBoot> lo -r -b 0x100000 redboot_ROM.bin
... Erase from 0x00080000-0x00000000:
... Unlock from 0x00040000-0x00093d48: ..
... Erase from 0x00040000-0x00093d48: Err = 200020

    initialization failed 0x00040000: 0x2(Error trying to erase)
... Lock from 0x00040000-0x00093d48: Err = 500050

I have searched for solutions for these error messages and it has lead  
nowhere. Does any one have an idea?

Thanks in advance!
