Ahh, you _added_ a partition. I don't think adding and removing 
partitions has been done when upgrading via FTP before, only resizing 
them. You'll probably have to get your hands dirty then. Patches are 
welcome if you succeed :-)

Depending on what you intend to use the added partition for, it might 
be easier to not include it in the image. If you, for example, just 
need it to store some data files you could just mount an empty 
partition and start writing to it.

As far as I know it's not easy to put ETRAX in boot mode from 
software. I don't know if it ever has been done. If possible at all, I 
think you have to jump into the boot ROM.
