nope. that has to live on your host computer -- you need to flash it to  
the fr with dfu-util.
i strongly suggest, you read the wiki aboput flashing first!

_hold_ AUX, _then_ press PWR and hold until the menu appears -- in this  

to flash at least u-boot you need to be in nor mode. again, see the wiki  
page mentioned above, there's a section on how to get in nor mode.

for testing purposes you could hold pwr alone. after a few secs the aux  
led should flash shortly and the fr should vibrate for a moment and it  
should start to boot.
but afaiu booting itself was no issue, right?
