Many thanks for the comprehensive answer, Duncan. That will certainly 
keep many C720 users happy. However, as I would also ultimately like to 
get rid of nag screens, etc, the quoted bit above leads me to more 
questions. What do you mean by replacing the payload, literally 
replacing one of the payloads or compiling my own coreboot? As the 
binaries are not in the third-party repo, is it possible to successfully 
extract and use them from the stock ROM?
