There are a plethora of Transflash / microSD cards out there.

Earlier, Sandisk cards were recommended, since they seemed to cause the least amount of trouble.

There has been a bug in the SD device driver (s3cmci) which caused some troubles. Please make sure you use a recent kernel which applies our kernel patchset rev2832 or higher.

Booting from SDHC requires a u-boot from 2008-07-23 or later.

Note that cards with a "no" may still work at times, but that we just have found their behaviour too erratic to consider acceptable. (Also note that this is a bug in our version of u-boot. The cards are probably fine.)
