Upgrading the kernel is the same thing as
flashing the kernel.
the kernel files have the name "U-Image.....bin" in them. Pick one from the
http://buildhost.openmoko.org/daily/freerunner/ daily-builds and flash it.
The command should loo something like this....
sudo ./dfu-util -a kernel -R -D qtUI.bin
upgrading the kernel may solve some problems but may cause others. For
instance it fixed my battery indicator but disabled ssh. Good luck.
