Nothing special here, the device was on battery when doing the update,
not specially hot.

I didn't get MALF again, but something strange instead: yesterday the
device went dead (flat battery after 9 hours, as usual), and it didn't
want to charge with the cheap USB cable I have at work (again as usual,
it seems it only charges when the battery is as at least half-full).
But at home with a wall-charger I had to charge it for a veery long time
(hours) before I could power it on (otherwise it would shut down).
Looking at Battery-Eye's result, it looks like the battery was
discharged way below zero (see attached screenshot, device powered on
around 04:45).
That behavior is new with PR1.2.
