Comment(by dsd):

 Recovery procedure for XO-1 users running Q2E46 and Q2E47:

  1. Download http://dev.laptop.org/pub/firmware/q2e48/q2e48.rom to a USB
  2. If the laptop is secured, obtain a developer key (see
 http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Activation_and_developer_keys) and put it on the
 USB disk too.
  3. Connect the affected XO to AC mains power and ensure that a good
 battery is inserted
  5. Boot to the "ok" firmware prompt (see http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Ok)
  6. at the `ok` prompt, type: `flash u:\q2e48.rom`
  7. The laptop will install the new firmware and automatically reboot. You
 are now running the latest firmware and upgrades to newer firmware
 releases will happen automatically as before.
