yaaay joerg and thank you!  i just safely and efficiently upgraded both my 
freerunners with that image.  if you are not aged 22 and thus do not have 
the eyes of an eagle (i'm not, and i don't) you may need a magnifying 
glass to read the screen properly, esp. when the text goes blue-on-blue. 
you may wish to get the magnifying glass ready first, instead of going 
into a panic when it's already running, like i did.

if anyone else is minded to try it, there are a few more details at 
http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/GSM/Flashing#uSD-card_Image .
