I have a touchscreen unit with 1G RAM/8G disk. After fs-update to 12.1.10 os9 1.75, OFW just sits at the ok prompt when powered on. If I type "boot", it tries "boot /wlan" and then returns to the ok prompt. But "boot int:\boot\olpc.fth" works fine; it upgraded me from Q4D10 to Q4D13 and booted into Linux. The problem persists after a reboot.
So, the laptop is still in the broken state: "boot int:\boot\olpc.fth" results in a boot all the way into Linux when issued, but turning the laptop on drops me at an ok prompt with no complaints visible.
