Sarcasm and stating the obvious aside, there used to be an identical file to 
gta02v5_and_up-u-boot.bin that had 'latest' in the name, I assume to avoid 
people asking which one is the latest.

It seems it no longer exists or possibly exists somewhere else.

All that said, everything is pretty fluid at the moment and I've found that as 
long as you know you have a compatible u-boot image, checking the 
creation/modification date is more accurate than assuming somebody is 
maintaining the 'latest' file.

Seeing as the 'lowlevel' image doesn't even contain the word 'u-boot', it's 
really outside the scope of obtaining a relevant u-boot image.

Hope that helps.
