Hi Linus


Ok, if there is no way to backup the original firmware (apparently not supported

by the hardware), I'll just have to try the new firmware at risk.

If that works, I have no doubt that RB should be fine as well.

So thumbs up for the flash (likely this evening)

I'll let the forum know how things worked out.
