Testing Results

Upgrade from G1G1 from January (sorry forgot to write down firmware version) Had to use separate activity method anyway.

Upgrade went fine, but failed on the activity pack install from USB drive. Using a 4gb Greenhouse usb2.0 drive. Ended up using Berts script to install activities successfully.

rsync upgrade method worked fine over a linksys wrvs4400n and continues to work well.

Nothing else to report, but keen to see a fix for the SD corruption.
