nope. I never used an external usb stick, but I always booted from SD card.

I had 3.2 from wheezy running on the efika, but now wiped it, as I didnt get
any graphical output to work. As said, I believe pata_imx and libata is enough
to access it, but if you prefer, I could reinstall the box with a pure wheezy
kernel and check again...
