     269
     270"TFTP error: trying to overwrite reserved memory..." may occur if you are attempting to "tftpboot" a file larger than the system memory.  If using an oversize image is unavoidable there are workarounds, potentially the image can be [wiki:/linux/ubi#UpdatingUBIwithlowRAMdevices split], or a ramdisk [wiki:/buildroot buildroot] image could be used.

    268273= Updating GSC firmware
    269274The GSC firmware is updated via the {{{gsc_update}}} application running under Linux as described at on the [wiki:gsc#firmware gsc wiki]. While it takes only a few seconds to update there is no recovery for a failed update. Gateworks has ensured that this update is robust but can not survive a power-cut or kernel crash in the middle of the update. Updates to the GSC firmware are expected to be rare.
