    263263Updates on the root filesystem are very use specific. You can use a package manager, or use multiple rootfs partitions on the FLASH selected by U-Boot when setting up the bootargs passed to the kernel. A common way to to this would be to use U-Boot variables as flags and counters that are altered within Linux via the fw_setenv/fw_printenv tools from the U-Boot {{{u-boot-tools}}} package. You can see example usages in the Newport BSP newport/Makefile.

    265 == Booting to a kernel/rootfs on the microSD
     265= Booting to a kernel/rootfs on the microSD
    266266This assumes the bootloader will remain on the eMMC, but then we switch to the microSD for the kernel/rootfs.
