It says "charging...", doesn't it?

Correct. It already has the luxury of text output.

Thanks!

I have a bit of a hen and egg problem with Bootbox and the upcoming v2.5. It
would be nice to have rombox back for all Archos platforms with v2.5, also
nice if the code base of Bootbox is also based on v2.5 to have something
reproduceable, right now it's just an arbitrary snapshot.

We need to change the start address of Rombox to where Bootbox ends, rounded
up to a 4K flash sector. I'd rather like to pad Bootbox up to some constant
size, such that the Rombox image doesn't have to move around if Bootbox
grows a bit and just crosses into the next sector.

Another thought would be to completely give up the non-Rombox ucl, make
Rombox the standard way of flashing. Why would anybody not want it?

Jörg
