Currently running Q2E18 on a B4 (test-all gives me the 'Invalid  
Opcode' and drops to the ok prompt just *after* the track pad test). I  
downloaded http://dev.laptop.org/~wmb/q2e19a.rom and tried to install  
it but without luck:

ok flash n:\boot\q2e19a.rom
Reading n:\boot\q2e19a.rom
Got firmware version: CL1    Q2E19a Q2E
Checking integrity ...
Firmware image has bad internal CRC

Just to be clear. Does Q2E18 work fully through the test-all process  
on the new G1G1 HW? If so, it's just existing, old XO users that will  
currently fail the self test? My main worry would be if the new G1G1  
hardware fails the self test. The vast majority will arrive in fully  
working order, and never need the test, but for the unlucky few %, a  
faulty self-test (especially on something as historically contentious  
as the track pad) would cause a lot of blowback to OLPC.
