Absolutely. nothing wrong in instructions how to build and flash new calypso 
firmware. Just please don't sugest it might fix issues that users may conceive 
they have. Placebo effect is all powerful. And more users flashing new firmware 
and then looking for any improvements they might want to spot will result in 
more such reports about "new firmware improves XYZ" which agian pulls in new 
users tempted to try and believe.

By all means write instructions based on clear facts! We need those.
Sorry if I sounded rude.
