The release notes for 10.1.3 at
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Release_notes/10.1.3#Installation do not
mention how to do a manual (non-secure) installation. On an XO-1.5,
fs-update works well. On an XO-1, I have found that copy-nand works
but update-nand doesn't write anything (and after a few minutes,
reboots the XO).
