bootloader stuff

Still gathering info on HTC bootloader, acer n30 linux port and htc-flasher could be usefull.
It seems that there're two ways to go:
  • flash linux kernel into internal NAND flash (dangerous, I want to ensure that I can restore WM)
  • boot linux via SD card with diagnostic image
Second way seems to be complicated, as I'll need to write mmc and FAT drivers if bootloader puts diagnostic image in some unappropriated memory area. Anyway still need to figure out where bootloader puts diagnostic image, how this diagnostic image should look, etc...
