I have this exact issue with the bitnami cloud joomla image.

It fails installing the amazon ec2 tools, at the point of installing openjdk. Machine hangs, reboot from AWS console the only solution. Rebooted image unstable and in a partially installed state. I can't back it up to S3 without installing the tools, and I cant install the tools to back it up.

Pretty disappointing, given this is my first exploration of using EC2 for some light content management with the free instance and backing it up is all I need to do before going live and seeing how it goes.

Just to echo #37 above that this is surprisingly low priority given it has been around for months and will hit most free tier AWS users experimenting with the platform.
