Followed the instructions to do the flash update, and it worked
flawlessly ;-) I first used the old flash I had, gave me the warning
about old loader, but worked OK. Then I found the new flash files on
the blind page, and uploaded that version, to finally run the .ucl
again; it now boots into the 2.5 version in just two or three
I now need to look for that small chip I bought to so the memory
upgrade........ I wonder whther I still have it or not........ I guess
not, and will have to buy one from one of you guys....... :-p
