New Docs please...

Just setting up my USBDroid, and the docs say (point 6) it's ready shipped with the 'blink' application.
When I plugged it in, no blinkin light, but Serial Monitor says:

Start USBDroid microSD card Test Procedure.
Timestamp 208ms


so there's actually an SD card test installed!!

haha you're lucky it might be a freebie.

1. Power down the board.
2. Remove the SD Card
3. Install Arduino IDE from
4. Install the Freetronics USB driver for windows
5. Plug your USBdroid back in
6. In Arduino IDE, navigate to File > Examples > 1.0 Basics > Blink
7. A new sketch will open up, press "Verify" then "Upload" and your should be blinking.....

BTW - did you buy it new or used? Someone might have had something running on the SD card when you got the device.
