This short post will help those of you unlucky enough to have received a corrupt or DOA SD card.
What you need:
-USB Image Tool (Here http://www.alexpage.de/usb-image-tool/
-A XK SD card image file - http://xkeydownloads.com/MicroSdImages/XK3y-111mb.img
-Unzip USB Image Tool to a directory on your Hard Disk.
-Unzip the XK SD card image file into the same directory.
-A micro SD card, preferably the 128MB card that came with XK but if this is not working you can use any micro SD card you have available
Writing the image:
-Plug your SD card into a USB card reader, plug the card reader into your PC. Note the drive letter Windows assigns to it
-Run the USB Image Tool (on Vista & 7 be sure to run it as Administrator)
-Make sure the USB Image Tool is in "Device Mode"
-Select the SD card from the list in USB Image Tool
-Click the "Restore" button in USB Image Tool
-A FileOpen Dialog will appear, select the XK SD card image file you unzipped previously
-Wait a few seconds for USB Image Tool to do its thing
-Eject/Safely Remove the SD card in explorer
You now have a factory fresh micro SD card with XK FW version 01.02 ready to use, add your firmware/dummy.bin file and test in your XK.
Here is an image - 111mb, tiny...they started shipping these smaller ones in March 2013 - http://xkeydownloads.com/MicroSdImages/XK3y-111mb.img
The image you flash on your micro sd card needs to be smaller or the same size as the micro sd card. This means you can use 128mb, 256mb, 2gb, 4gb etc etc. Every single batch from the xk3y team is a different size, the above image is 111mb and the smallest its even been so its best to just use this one.
But here are some older images that have been uploaded:

**Please note, if you make a new card please use a Micro Sd card reader, not a microSD to SDcard adapter that is plugged into a reader as it usually doesn't work**ADMIN edit:
Firmware 1.23 image WITH iso menu enabled already. Just added your firmware.bin or dummy.bin and thats it! -> http://xkeydownloads.com/MicroSdImages/ ... eIMAGE.img
