Boot Second Kernel

We are thinking about keeping a failsafe kernel in the Jetson flash. After booting this kernel we check for an online update from our server and then “re-boot” into a new filesystem/kernel on the SSD. Is there a good way to transfer execution from the boot kernel to the new kernel/filesystem on the SSD. Boot time is not an issue for us.

I don’t have answer for this, may other developers help to share experiences. Thanks

Other than picking via serial console I don’t know of a way. I suppose there might be a way to customize the initrd, but that’s speculation. Also, on newer UEFI boot, there may be other changes which won’t work (or perhaps will).
