Good timing (see email today from Steven Parrish "New F11 for the XO-1
Build 6, its Sugar 0.84). I'm currently running build 5 on two XOs
here for testing (XO-1 and an XO-B4). Apart from some oddly large
fonts in the Journal and Favourites list view, it's been pretty smooth
(obviously no msh0: support, and camera driver likely not working with
XO HW, though I haven't tested this in v5).
If you have a dev key and you've disable-security at the open firmware
prompt, you just need to download the .crc and .img  file to a USB
and then copy-nand. Obviously this will wipe your existing XO data, so
you might want to snapshot first with save-nand . I've not tried to
create a live USB stick from the F11_for_XO-1, builds but the wiki
page  has some pointers (along with normal instructions) if you need.
