My "weakest" XO-1 runs 'copy-nand' to completion with this rom, whereas 
from other roms it very often gets "file read errors" (on the file on 
that same USB stick) while performing 'copy-nand'.

I've now adopted the procedure with that "weakest" XO-1 to first flash 
q2e46a.rom; then use it to install whatever the new os__.img is;  then 
flash that XO-1 to another rom if I want to boot with that other rom.
