Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

  Although I haven't got one of these devices, as I'm more than happy with my C600, I think it only fair to help warn those of you that do that you MAY inadvertently end up in a scenario where it is possible that you might turn your pride and joy into a rather expensive paperweight?

I was alerted to this by MSMobiles about the article by nedge2k in MSMobileNews

If you have bootloader v0.56 on your device, DO NOT upgrade to an AKU2 or you will turn it into a paperweight!

To check your bootloader, hold the light key, power key and press the reset button. If it says v1.00 then you don't need to worry. If it says v0.56, you must not upgrade to AKU2. If you do, the only way to fix it is to flash back to a pre-AKU2 rom or upgrade your bootloader to v1.00 (which is currently not possible publically).

BTW, as this is my 300th Post I'd just like to pay homage to:
Dave Oliver for getting me started
Brian Madden and Doug Brown for showing what's possible
Charles Aunger for pushing me to think beyond the normal boundaries
