If first boot setup is causing the further boots to fail then most
likely the flash-kernel script in freedombox-setup is the reason.  You
can create a fresh SD card, mount it then disable by the flash-kernel
script by creating a empty file in /var/freedombox/dont-tweak-kernel.

Once the flash-kernel is disabled, the image should be usable and should
give better chance to debug the issue for future kernel upgrades.
