I hate repetition, but you are right. For someone that stumbles upon v2 for first time is a mess.
What about this then http://ftp.cc.uoc.gr/mirrors/linux/TinyCore_for_XO1/Announce%20tc-xo_02%20for%20the%20XO-1.html

Regarding dd-mediated installations, I do not like them because they do not respect the factory optimized partitioning.
So I prefer to change the filesystem in the factory partitions rather than repartition the media (as dd-methods usually do).
By itself will not damage the media, but on the long run it may.
