Hi Flip

I don't understand, how the update is working ?
When i execute the "VCTL"-File, i become the follow message:

root@Icybox:/mnt/IDE1/public # ./VCTL
./VCTL: line 1: FLFM: not found
./VCTL: line 2: 00000000SL08P32N5BN00000000US: not found
root@Icybox:/mnt/IDE1/public #

How i should use it ?
i think you should flash the VCTL partition with the file and values
provided by flip. (in the bootlader, not in operating system)

please check the values above before updating
