Startup Disk Creator support for flashing fastboot images

Registered by Oliver Grawert on 2012-10-17

With the R release we want to be able to flash ubuntu onto unlocked fastboot based android devices. The image build system will provide img files for this. To make the actual flashing procedure as easy and safe as possible, this functionality should be integrated into usb-creator which already deals with writing images to devices.
