Right now, it has 5.0.0. I need to know something before updating to 5.1.0:
- I flashed the 5.0.0 kernel and 5.0.0 main partition.
- I flashed mmcblk0p2_ssh-5.1.0 that should be 5.1.0 diag partition+SSH
I see there are also diags_kernel-5.0.0 and mmcblk0p2-kt-5.0.0.img.
As I'm really scared to mess up thing updating, do I need to flash also last two files?
I mean, all the "match partition with kernel" thing....I'm OK with it?
PS A HUGE THANKS TO EVERYBODY, I'LL PROVE IT WASN'T WASTED TIME!
You should be okay. Beware that upgrading to 5.1.0 may install a startup script that erases files needed for SSH, as some people reported, although that has not been a problem for me personally.
There seems to be multiple versions of 5.1.0 with different behaviors out in the wild. What was amazon thinking?
@silver18: Please provide a link for your guide, so I can add it to my "simple debricking sticky" first post.
