An update (1.5) is done and has fixed many of these issues. The
problem was that repositories have changed (e.g. buildhost ->
downloads), files are renamed (e.g. uBoot-*.bin -> *-uBoot.bin) etc.
without direct notice to us by the repository maintainers...

Please also help to maintain OpenMoko Flasher since it is open source.
Bug fixes and patches are always welcome (but were very rarely
proposed so far).
