Default [FIX] stock boot.img attached. flashed with fastboot! use for OTA!

i took the 8mb boot.img from the nandroid backup/thread, renamed it to .bin, opened with a hex editor, deleted everything after 2cffff (to make correct size), saved as boot.img and flashed. then updated via recovery. cheers.

Code:
fastboot flash boot test_boot.img
edit: uploaded to my host as well: http://mycarbl0ws.com/test_boot.rar
