If you mess up the first partition then that should be fine.
Just don't mess up the second one.
Ok! That make sense. Thanks.
Ideally, I would prefer booting from the SD card. I found in u-boot.bin what seems to be the description of a boot entry for /dev/mmcblk1p1. I copied the internal root partition onto an SD card but that does not seem to work. Is there a trick here (such as changing the partition name)?
