So, where are the u-boot images? --Gero 21:35, 27 July 2008 (UTC)
The u-boot images are found with the daily builds. See Freerunner/ASU daily builds in Latest Images. Note the file names are wrong. If you look through the dates, they all seem to have the same file names indicating version and git commit hash. However, use the latest build, and you can check the true version by booting into u-boot, connecting to u-boot, and issuing the 'version' command. thewtex 04:40, 28 July 2008 (UTC)
Is it still necessary to erase the rootfs partition before flashing a new one, if the new one is smaller? If so then we should add this as one of the steps.
Also instructions on setting the boot menu timeout to something sensible would be a good thing to have in here, as hitting AUX every 20 seconds to keep the phone shutting down while flashing a rootfs is tedious.
At least in my experience, it won't shut down when an image is being transferred.
