trying Qi

I would like to try switching to Qi.

- There is no up-to-date release binary ? Latest I found is 18/12/08

And since even the wiki page mentions
features available after 18/01/09, I do not know if other infos in the
wiki apply to this older Qi version.

- Qi tries the 3 first primary partitions, but does not recognize FAT.
So if my first partition is FAT, it will try to boot on 2nd 3rd and
4th, or only 2-3 ?
Anyway in my case my 4th partition is an extended one....

- is it possible to boot on an non-primary partition ?
At least leaving my kernel on a primary partition but rootfs on the
extended partition : using boot parameter root=/dev/mmcblk0p5 ? ( as
mentioned here )

- via Aux button to swap the booting partition, can I force NAND boot
? (with the version I tried, I did not manage to do this)
