Generated .hex files should have length/CRC for integrity checking

  1. It would be nice if the generated .hex files had an embedded length, that the firmware could use to verify that the file was complete.

    I also think it would be nice if the file had a CRC check so that the integrity of the file can be confirmed.

    Since files are being transferred via sdcard, I imagine that people will run into issues where they get an incomplete file due to improper ejecting or even bad sdcards.

    Very good idea... I've added it to the firmware git.

    I believe the git is now public so feel free to browse and contribute yourself.
