It looks like the Tizen image flashing instructions are out! I wouldn’t have found out about it had not my good pal jezra posted a link in the forum (I’ve been waiting for it to be announced in the mailing list which was promised 2 weeks ago).

Anyway, below is a summary of the steps, and oh, you need to be running Ubuntu (32-bit):

  • Download the Tizen image
  • Download and install the lthor library
  • Turn off device
  • Enter download mode by pressing <volume-down> + <power> buttons simultaneously
  • Connect device to the Linux PC via USB
  • Upload the image with:
    sudo ./lthor lb-tizen-1.0_20120613.10-rs.tar.gz
  • Wait until upload is finished and the device does a reboot

The full, detailed instructions are at the Wiki.

Thanks jezra!

The Tizen Talk Forum (TtF) is now up! For those who know me, I’m the current forum adminstrator (Talkmaster) of (TMO) and the MeeGo Forum. Let me say that I’m a big forum fan. :)

TtF will basically act as an unofficial* Tizen forum so Tizen hackers and enthusiasts can post and encourage discussion about Tizen topics that can be uncomfortable to post or might be classified as ‘noise’ at the mailing lists. As a treat, Thomas Perl, famous for his gPodder app, is now posting his hacks at the Hacks forum.

The forum is running on a new (commercial) forum system called Xenforo, which looks a bit different to the vBulletin forums you have been used to. In any case, this is the time to register, reserve your username, introduce yourself, comment on the forum structure, and share anything about Tizen. If you want to volunteer as a forum moderator, let me know. See you all at the forum!

* For the record, while doesn’t have a forum, I heard Dawn Foster, Tizen Community Manager, mention in her talk at the recently concluded 2012 Tizen Developer Conference, that’s official developer-only forum in being planned.
