 +Also, changeset 42316 altered the flash layout to allow for a bigger kernel partition. The instructions below apply to images compiled from trunk prior to this change, and for BB-rc1 and BB-rc2. BB-rc3 does not work because the kernel image is too big for its mtd partition. For BB-rc4 and later, and images compiled from trunk after and including r42316, please replace all occurrences of 0x160000 by 0x200000 in the commands below.
