The Raspberry Pi credit-card-sized Linux-loaded ARM computer has been shipping for a little while, and it was enough for developers to see just how frustrating it can be to have to constantly reinstall the firmware.
Since the small device is primarily meant for teaching and experimenting with programming, mishaps can happen, which means that the core software doesn't always come out scot-free.
Developer Hexxeh decided it was time to simplify the reinstall and update process, so he released a small tool that does just that. He doesn't even want anything in exchange for it, so go here and download it if you have one of those critters.
If you still haven't received your order, all we can say is hold on because it will reach you eventually. RS and Allied Electronics are doing their best. Probably.
