I think you have enough excuse to start a Wiki!
What if a picked a public site and started one? What other gems are waiting to be discovered by intricate questions?

Normal upgrade via FTP:
ftp> put fimage flash
When using devboard_82 (at least) the jffs-partition is upgraded after reboot. This way you can backup data from the old jffs partition to RAM and restore it to the new jffs-partition. (See
Repartitioning upgrade via FTP:
ftp> put fimage flash_all
If you need to change the partition sizes during upgrade there's no way to backup and restore data.
