Will continue looking into it...

EDIT: Not sure what's the $PWD during the update process when the install script is in a subdirectory, and since it's using relative paths, I'm not quite sure it's actually finding the kernel & partition dumps... (Try repacking it with -C ?) [I'm still confused, like you, as to why that wouldn't completely wreck the FS, though. But I'm not familiar with dd, and even less with busybox's implementation, so, there may be some *nix magic at work here ^^]
Yeah, I might try the "-C" switch. Actually, I think I'll try the kamikaze method and zero out the diags partition, then run the update.bin and see what happens
