Prepare a sdcard with a msdos partition layout. The first partition can be either fat16 or fat32 formatted.
The u-boot bootloader will probe files in the following order when you press
R while booting the device.
If one does not exists it will be skipped. The
update.gz will only be loaded when a
uImageUP was loaded successfully.
See u-boot 1.1.6
The source for kernel
2.6.24 is available at openhandhelds.org
but at least for me I had some weird character issues therefore I cleaned up the source and applied
all changes to the upstream linux-stable repository on github.
