Just wanted to say that I'm having the same problem (and same questions): I was able to upload 258076672 bytes (=246 Mb), but then dfu-util dies with "dfu_upload error -16", and the FreeRunner reboots.

At least one other person (you?) has indicated a similar problem at http://wiki.openmoko.org/wiki/Pre-Flash_Backup. Any ideas, anyone?
