It seems that the new kernel-image-2.6.24 package does not 
contain the actual kernel image (it is just 1.1 kb), so the 
FreeRunner does not boot.

I got the same problem, solved flashing a kernel image via the 
U-Boot menu. Here my notes (in Italian, sorry):

I got the missing kernel image (uImage-<something>.bin) from the
and followed the instruction here:

Remember also to copy the image file into /boot/ once you can ssh 
the Neo again.
