Hi All

I recently update the bootloader of NanoNote.

1. when boot from sd card. bootloader will load "/boot/uImage" in the first ext2 partition.
    so when you extract the rootfs tgz to sd card, remember copy openwrt-xburst-qi_lb60-uImage.bin
    to SDCARD:/boot/. rename it to "uImage"

2. when compile bootloader in openwrt "make package/uboot-xburst/compile". openwrt will generate
    two files:
      openwrt-xburst-qi_lb60-u-boot.bin : this is for the NanoNote nand flash. which usbboot use.
      openwrt-xburst-qi_lb60-u-boot-for-xbboot.bin: this is for NanoNote ram. which xbboot use.
    for more info please take a look at : http://en.qi-hardware.com/wiki/Bootloader#Compile
