Hi Edgar,

I also had trouble figuring out how to update my image from 6706.  It
turns out that you first need to use Montecello to update your Scriptloader.
Then you can run the "Scriptloader new updateFrom6706" that Stef mentioned.

Here is the explanation that I found in an earlier email from Adrian Lienhard:
