Okay, thanks again. I tried both the latest SHR testing and SHR unstable with
each of the bootloaders (u-boot and qi)in their respective newest versions, but
at some point I always had fs errors. A bad blocks check of the SD on my PC has
not given any positive results, so I suppose my freerunner just doesn't play
well with that particular card. I'm not completely sure if the card might be a
fake, the backside (where the contacts are) looks suspicious, the paint over the
circuit is green as opposed to black as on my other sandisk cards, and is more
translucent than the paint used with the other cards.
Bad luck :(
