Yep, that's the userspace version. And yes, you can copy it to your
desktop. It should [tm] work. ;)

Mhm, no idea if you can backup the whole system image or something, and
re-flash it after your experiments, but that would probably void the

Well, you can also use batman-adv userland on the Broadcom, that should
