Thanks!  The build is now signed so you don't even need a developer key:

Helping us test WPA (WPA2 especially) would be most useful, since these
wifi connections sometimes fail as much as 20% of the time, when similar
8.2.0 seemed to fail only ~10% of the time.  And of course try:

Please help me clean up Release Notes on the way:

Recap -- all you should need are these 2 files burned onto a USB stick:
   http://download.laptop.org/xo-1/os/candidate/802/jffs2/os802.img (233MB)
   http://download.laptop.org/xo-1/os/candidate/802/jffs2/fs.zip (155K)

Follow the usual procedure (http://wiki.laptop.org/go/USB_update), grab
Activities from your XO's Control Panel later, and  Buzz me if you get
stuck :)
