Updating U-Boot

Can you link to instructions on updating the u-boot. I think this is it here.

sync after umount?

Using a sync after the umount is completely redundant right? After umount there is no block part in the kernel doing any caching, so there is nothing to actually sync anymore. So I think the sync should be removed. Bram

What are the benefits of booting from SD? Does it improve the performance in terms of speed and/or non-SD RAM/ROM memory usage of the device? Pander 11:05, 20 July 2009 (UTC)
