Subject: Re: all flashed recorders, please reflash with my latest

The freeze is the symptom, because actually my "minimon" monitor program is
started. It sits there and waits for commands from the serial interface. You
need the serial mod to use it. Minimon can be used to reflash the box, even
if all but the first couple of hundred bytes went wrong. It is the same
monitor which I download with the UART boot mod feature, for the common boxes with
boot ROM it "only" saves that mod. For the rare ROMless boxes, it is the only
chance of recovery if flashing goes wrong, because there's no UART boot
possibility for them. I introduced minimon into the bootloader for those.
