Get Freedom-Maker [0, 1], it contains all the details you need.  What
other recipes have you found or been using?

On DreamPlugs purchased in (around) fall 2012 or later, running "make
dreamplug-image" should successfully build a DreamPlug image ready to be
dd-ed onto the FreedomBox's main SD card, without needing to modify the
DreamPlug's boot loader.

DreamPlugs purchased before that time may need to update the bootloader
so the image can boot, per the upgrade instructions available in
Freedom-Maker's README.
