If you read the wiki page in question you'll see that there's no
potential to fubar unless you really dedicated to do it.

GSM firmware upgrade is strongly recommended for everybody anyway
(that's not official OM-the-company position, that's just my humble
opinion; though everybody can just look at the wiki page, the
changelog to see that it's true): sooner or later you'll get a new SIM
which won't work with moko8, that's the first reason. The second is
that moko11 includes some important fixes related to resume on
incoming call and it finally implements hardware flow control

Hardware flow control is even more important for GTA01
owners as their SoC has small UART buffers that are easily overrun.

For those GTA02 owners uncomfortable with cli (why are there any in OM
community anyway?) Joerg prepared a uSD image that works flawlessly,
just dd it to your uSD (to the whole uSD, not to the partition!) and
it'll do everything needed automatically. GTA01 owners still have to
use the manual instructions.
