Yes, that blink is the internal embedded controller starting up after
having shutdown automatically due to lack of power.  When you see that
blink, that's what it means.  You can also see it every time you plug in
with no battery present.  XO-1.5 only.

Yes, the update firmware step checks for adequate battery level.  XO-1
and XO-1.5.
