Correct. You have that 2.00 in there for an FM? I thought I've issued that
only for recorders.

This is actually my fault. For the very first flash images I have given out,
I euphorically changed this number to 2.00, thinking this flashing stuff is
worth a new major version. Later I changed my mind and kept the original
version, who knows what it may be good for.
So I use it for a platform check now. I had to code the exception that I
accept 2.00 an a recorder now, because of above. But I didn't expect to find
that on FMs, so the check bails out.

You can flash with "firmware_flash.rock" from a daily build before 11/30,
which didn't have the check. Then your 2.00 is gone and we're consistent again.
