Comment(by Quozl):

 The ''catch'' of ''nandblaster'' in ''try-fs-update'' cannot be handled,
 because ''nandblaster'' unconditionally calls ''boot''.

 Mitch said on 2012-03-30 "''
 nandblaster is a C program
 that is executed as a "client program", booted similarly to the way
 that OFW runs an OS.  OFW assumes that a client program might take
 over the machine in arbitrary ways.  The client program is not treated
 as a subroutine from which it is possible to return to the calling

 nbrx.fth always used boot for the XO-1.5 onwards.

 To restore the XO-1 functionality would require a wireless scan first,
 before calling the C program.
