Thanks about feedback. This change to add option to display readme/help files to user after installation if very good (at least for Windows and Mac). 

I will forward this enhancement request to the new project manager who is now responsible of Maemo flasher tools after me.

If the installer for the Mac OS X flasher simply offered to to display
Readme_Maemo_Flasher-3.5.txt at the end of the installation procedure,
that might be a small start. I suspect many Mac OS X users may not be
accustomed to looking in /usr/share/doc/, a directory hidden from the
Finder, for instructions.
