No, these images are meant for NAND install. For USB/SD we'd need yet
another image, OLPC used to provide ext3 ones.
People should be aware that this is a one-way street. Once you run
this new Sugar version, the Journal contents will be converted to a
new format. AFAIK it cannot be reverted back to the older format.
Actually, Sebastian, there should be a big WARNING in your
announcements about this ...

Yes, that would be the only option to go back.
