I've just tried to flash my freerunner with the newest FDOM and ran into a problem with dfu-util.
Long story short, here's the console output:

[root at workhorse files]# ./dfu-util -a rootfs -R -D Fat_and_Dirty_OM.200809_20080927.rootfs.jffs2

Error during download

The device used to flash without errors and I can't find any explanation to this error code.
The file's checksum is correct and it breaks always at the same place.

I hope the FDOM team will be able to do something about it because I can't wait to try it out :)
