Recently i bricked my old motorola phone by feeding a broken firmware.
The archive was good, unpacking was Ok, and half way through reflashing  
the phone it's just gave me an error which result in a brick at the end.

Would it be appropriate to have md5sum for each firmware image, so end  
users would have an option to check integrity of the image?

As far, as I can see,  
firmware images links are empty for now, but for future it would be nice  
to be sure that the particular firmware that you going to upload to your  
lovely phone is authentic.
