After flashing q4b06jc on a unit with q4b06jb, there was a pause while the EC firmware was updated, which was visible on the serial port, but the display showed only an XO icon and single dot.
Perhaps some indication should be given on the display, so that the laptop is not interfered with by the user during the very brief interval.
I'm not sure what indication would be both easy enough and appropriate.
For XO-1.5, OpenFirmware and EC flash mediated by olpc.fth, we simply say it is happening.
