Somebody may found it useful (e. g. for initial setup).
Note that on models with HDD it will not do what is expected.
It will format 2nd NAND partition, but /home is on /dev/hda2.
When you are discussing updater, I would like to discuss few additional
1. Decrease number of reserved sectors while formatting the HDD. 5% is
far too much of space unusable for packages installation. I have 5%
free, but unable to run applications using /tmp. I propose 0% (or only
a few blocks).
2. Support for langpacks. OE does not create langpack yet, but it would
be nice to be able to flash localized system.
3. I am using post-flash customization using a combination of additional
files and patches. It would be nice to have something like that
directly as an updater feature.
