I can't confirm or deny this. After downgrading a machine to Q2D16, 
reinstalling the build 708 and then installing the Joyride 2200, the 
right firmware (Q2E11) appeared to be installed. I didn't run the 
test without the external power supply because I'm (almost) sure that 
the original installation was done on external power.

The abnormal behavior of the Joyride 2200, observed so far, is 
described in tickets #7648 (activities installation), #7693 (Browser 
activity doesn't run) and #7694 (olpc-netlog command is absent).
