SHR goes well with GTA01. FSO probably too, but I have not tried it lately.
You can the lite image from flash. But you even have to remove cruft
before you can install gllin. The space constrains are really heavy.

I run SHR from SD. Kernel from Flash because uboot can not load from SDHC
on GTA01. Rootfs on SD.
Please be aware of possibley very misleading informations regardng boot
from SD on the wiki! Some frerunner users seem to disregard GTA01 issues
and delete or change them one in a while. ;)
Stay away from Qi, it has no DFU mode and you have no secondary bootloader.
Be arware of diferent mtd 'partitions' on GTA01

All these issues are pretty comprehensively described here:

And if you don't wish to use your SD for rootfs, please just ignore my
random facts. They are not important. ;)
