Activities won't auto-install from USB "bundles" folder onto 11.3.0?

Eureka: we finally got this to work on 30+ XO-1s in time for tomorrow's 8am classes in Haiti here. And manually/painstakingly installed all our customs Activities on the other XO-1s that obstinately refused customization sticks.
Next time we'll try to understand better why certain XOs refuse -- regrettably for now all we know is customization sticks (appear) to work better a few reboots after reflashing and entering the child's name etc.
Thanks for everyone's help!

Build 883 XO-1s, from a USB stick's "bundles" directory?

build 860 (and build 874 too I think). Very sadly these instructions
suddenly seem not to work anymore: (for us!)

try? We've tried this both during the clean install to 11.3.0, and
separately after completing these reflash steps:

ideas at all!
