Linux util for flashing sbf files; sbf_flash

The usage is pretty straight forward, simply connect the phone and run:
chmod +x sbf_flash
./sbf_flash filename.sbf
The output looks something like this -
SBF FLASH 0.01 (mbm)

=== hack.sbf ===

Please link to this blog post and not a mirror in order to make sure everyone uses the latest version. It also helps me track the number of people that use the utility which determines how much time I spend maintaining it.
