joyride-2522 updated, rewrote firmware Q2E20, rebooted fine the first
time...then hung up on 2nd reboot, (after removing gnash and installing
flash). Now I get this with olpc-update joyride-2522 (and joyride-2521 and

$ sudo olpc-update joyride-2522 -r

┬┐Help? I have reverted to joyride-2515. Alarming that olpc-update won't even
