Rolling back rpi-update

Hi, is there a way to rollback the kernel/firmware to the latest stable after having done rpi-update?

Thanks.

Yes.

Code: Select all

sudo rpi-update eeb2e51c3e08cd5efa4246aa8dc54a09b25ada12
eeb2e51c3e08cd5efa4246aa8dc54a09b25ada12 being the Git hash of the latest stable firmware for you.

Great, thanks. I can now see how the commits on the firmware repo can be used & it seems that rpi-update drops a .firmware_revision into /boot with the hash.

Cheers,
Fraser.

Is there a way to work out which comit belongs to which version? That is the version shown via the uname -a command.

Code: Select all

$ uname -a
Linux *** 4.4.7-v7+ #877 SMP Sun Apr 17 12:48:36 BST 2016 armv7l GNU/Linux
