Well ... I thought that, when you want to update your system, the following happens:
1. You put a bunch of stuff on the SD card, including a kernel, code to do the update to the flash memory, and the code to be put onto the flash memory. (The last encrypted, and to be decrypted in the process.)
2. You boot from the SD card.
3. The updating happens automatically.
So, it seemed that it would be easy to keep that kernel on the SD card and supply your own init. No flashing would be done, and you would be in control.
Because this has not been done yet, I must be wrong.
