    is it only for me or the images on bottom of article are missing

    The link provided, directed me to a file named "Gingerbread+EthernetManager.7z". I do not know if this is the correct image file.
    I tested the file for errors, unzipped it, and burned the image to my Raspberry Pi 2 as instructed, but no response. Only power LED is on.

    To bad for me.

    It does this to compress, just like zip and tar. Go to http://www.7-zip.org/ and download the program to "unzip" it
