Tried it and get the same versions (means the link are OK on the
I thought about trying something :
# ./dfu-util -a u-boot -R -U current-uboot.bin
# strings current-uboot.bin | grep git
U-Boot 1.3.2+gitr18+64eb10cab8055084ae25ea4e73b66dd03cc1a0cb (Aug 4 2008 - 02:33:52)
Neo1973 Bootloader U-Boot 1.3.2+gitr18+64eb10cab8055084ae25ea4e73b66dd03cc1a0cb
