    I already tried all that way.But that way not suitable for atom life
    recovery.I think There 's a problem with difference voltage form LPT
    with resistor to Atom lIfe.The software can not read the type of
    firrmware. I think I am not alone problem with this atom life dead
    bootloader.I already contacted to Quanta computer (Manufacturer) and
    all service center in my country, they told the solution is replace
    motherboard.The easy way but need high cost.They can not show me
    another solution for this case.But suppose to be this device can
    reflash again if we know the JTAG Location exactly and JTAG Adapter and
    software which suitable for this device but I think JTAG Location is
    confidential and restricted area from them so they can not share this
    matter.I am worry My atom life become a junk stuff. Because there is no
    one in the world can solve this matter. I think if you have contact
    person directly to the Quanta Computer and they willing to sharing
    about this, the problem can be solved.Do you have any idea?

I'm not using an Atom Life, so I don't have the flashing files for your device. But I think these links will help you a lot for understanding the process. First link is exactly for your device, I got it translated from russion to english by google, second is from a very good source, xda-developers. And the last one is not Atom Life but it is close so the pictures can help. You'll also need a JTAG cable. I hope this helps. (Because the only other solution than this is replacing your mainboard which will cost you around $300-$400) ( ( (

How to set up wifi on o2 xda atom

In case you use an ADSL modem, its not gonna work.

I had to give mine a static IP address to get the Wifi to work (DHCP did not work at all). It also seems very slow and the battery life drains very quickly when you start using the wifi anyway.

hope this helps you....

O2 Xda Atom Exec cell shut down; can not turn back on. one time black screen white letters came on, last read said looking for usb port to down load?

The Black screen that you are talking about is the bootloader of your PPC. Its just like the BIOS of your Computer.

There might be some problem with the Operating system of your O2 Atom Exec.
Try a hard reset by holding the Power Key and then soft reseting.
I know that you will lose your data, but you may get your PPC working back.

O2 atom battery won't charge

I would suggest you to buy a new battery, since the one you have is 2 years old. If that doesnot solve the problem, you could try checking the mini connector on the phone. Sometimes, due to heavy usage (connect and reconnect to the jack) it is damage/loose. Try bring them to a repair shop.

MN1 bootloader

First try turning on your phone without the memory card. I suspect you have an SD flash upgrade files in the SD card that's forcing the phone to reflash every time it turn on.

If it is still failed, you could try doing a hard reset? But be carefull, you'll need to back up all your data first, cause it will delete all files and data in the phone.

Welcome Screen hangs

It's a pretty tricky job to do by yourself. First, you need to reinstall ROM (operating system, bios, firmware), you can't however do that by yourself because you will be needing an active sync connection for this to work. If you can't boot to windows, you can't active sync. It is risky to try to put the Atom into flash mode and attemt a ROM update yourself. A compatible ROM version or a ROM image is somewhat difficult to find for Atom's. You should try the basic things, hard reset again, remove battery, let it unconnected all night and connect it back, then a hard reset again. If all these doesn't work I advice you to send your Atom to a specialised service to have the ROM update done properly.
