Bug Description Snowball LEB download page does not mention flashing firmware (e.g. The problem with this is that the Igloo Community state that SD card images should be used with the matching firmware flashed to emmc, and I have a case where not doing so causes a problem (bug 950628).

I realise that this page is standard across the different LEBs, but is there any chance of adding a paragraph or two explaining:

1) That the firmware needs to be updated along with the SD image
2) How to do this (see for a guide)

I added a section in the Software Update page:

which describes the issue. This could be linked to from release pages to raise awareness of the issue (and flashing in general).
