Luckily, my son has a Nokia 5300 which has a BL-5B battery in it. The
original Nokia battery is shorter than that for the Freerunner, but I
guess it'll work If I just hold it firmly with my hand, basically going
a long the second option:

"Boot the FreeRunner with an alternative battery, or with a spare GTA01
or GTA02 battery, plug USB power, then switch to the empty battery."

Didn't work at first try because the Nokia battery was also completely
discharged, but it worked now (an hour later).

Guess I'll order that extra battery now. :)

Thanks a lot.
