Yes, the 10.1.x series no longer supports this method. So I've marked
the page deprecated.

No, the .usb files are for olpc-update using USB drive.
If you would like to try installing to an external SD card on an XO-1,
the method would involve:
1. obtaining the osXXX.tree.tar.lzma file,
2. creating a filesystem,
3. unpacking the tree file,
4. preparing an olpc.fth for booting from external SD,
Please update the Wiki page if you get this working. It isn't a focus
of the development effort at the moment.
