It would appear to be unrelated.  All three of these XO-1's  can run all
previous ubifs developer builds.  They just cannot boot the 12.1.0  os/1.

Kidding aside on my quasi technical comment, on the previous ubifs, the
blue squares on the re-flash install animation started on line 1, and
continued for almost an entire row,  On this one, the squares now start
mid-row 2 and are less than a quarter of a row long.  Perhaps in an effort
to optimize the ubifs file system and reduce the footprint of the install,
some important component necessary to boot has been omitted?
