-To access some BooSt functions you need a docking station or a '​dongle'​ (which is a connector for the docking station socket with resistors between appropriate pins). Without it only a subset of commands is available.\\ \\ Boot into BooSt, either by placing nbp on a docking station with only s/w 5 ON, or by using a BooSt dongle. If you don't have one, make one yourself.\\ \\ Information about this can be seen here: [[http://​www.nijdam.de/psion/​BooStDongle.pdf|BooSt Dongle (pdf)]]+To access some BooSt functions you need a docking station or a '​dongle'​ (which is a connector for the docking station socket with resistors between appropriate pins).
