Hello Andreas,

thank you for your offer. But I think the most easy way would be to boot 
the complete system (including current bootloader) from SD card with just 
having switched off the auto-flash option for the bootloader. As far as I 
remember this auto-flash option is coded somewhere in the additional 
scripts around the bootloader.

So I don't want to bother you with my extremely short memory. One of the 
reasons why studied computer science is that it allows me to outsource my 
memory into the machine. So everything has been archived well by me. I 
just need the time to reload that swap space into my memory again by 
combing through that stuff. But it's a question of time...

Best regards
   Sven

Maybe I can provide a script for you to get a backup of an older
bootloader.

Well, if you want to try out you can even start a new bootloader over
usb, so your old one is not tampered with, neither your
uboot environment is. So there should be a possibility to boot the new
qtmoko. I can give you detailed descriptions for doing that if you want

Regards,
Andreas
