    This probably means that the firmware update on the SD card is not properly recognized.

    In this case, the machine displays the GPH logo, and while the R button is still being held the screen flashes every couple of seconds (system resets). Once the R button is released, it performs a regular boot (ie the "whatever you want" logo is shown).

    If that is the case, then I would first check the SD card. Use an SD card (no SDHC, max 2GB) with a single partition, formated with FAT16.
