    Rename the *.img files to *.nfi, then it will recognize it.

    .img images are for the 500. 600 and 7025 images are .nfi and are 3/4 times the size.

    Is it correct that the 500+ uses the new .nfi type images as well?

    I think the 7020 uses .nfi so that only leaves the 5620, 7000 and 500 using the old .img files

    One big advantage with the 7020 and 7025 is the ability o recover from a bad flash due to the 2 stage boot loader. It makes flashing fast and easy as well.
