Hi again!

I wanted to thank Alex Crough and Mike Lococo for responding to my  
request for assistance.

Alex, this was a common sense fix I wish that I had considered.

I hear that OS2006 has been released which causes me to re-ask my  
earlier question:

Mike and Alex, can I use these flasher tools to update to OS2006? I  
recall the Maemo.org Tools page saying something like the flasher  
only works for maemo1.1. Is this the same thing, or am I getting  
confused (maemo1.1 = OS2005, maemo2.0 = OS2006)?

I would like to download and install this upgrade, but I do not want  
to fry the 770 in the process. :-(

Thanks again for sharing your expertise!
