Description

The offline procedure to install firmwares by downloading in another OS and copying stuff around before invoking install-wifi-firmwares. sh doen't work anymore since PM. The Daily Task and user guide have to be adjusted.

I suggest to only describe the method of using the download-data-for-wlan-firmwares.txt script. I can do that change.

That script has to be updated however (URLs and post-PM paths). Attached is a working script that I probably can also upload to the server. Before I do that, I'd like to have someone else look over it and confirm, that it was OK to use the newest version of b43-fwcutter (019 instead of 012).

Forget new_download-data-for-wlan-firmwares.txt​.

Instead, please upload the two new scripts. Thanks.
