Although this won't make much difference to the normal SD-CARD boot configuration the HDMI diagnostics screen should make support easier because users can attach a picture. It will also allow people who support network boot environments to have a known stable release which works with PiServer or other out of the box configurations.
The APT update should be available later today, so if you want to try this:-
Code: Select all
sudo apt update sudo apt upgrade # Check that the latest stable release 2020-04-16 has been installed ls /lib/firmware/raspberrypi/bootloader/stable # Edit /etc/default/rpi-eeprom-update and set FIRMWARE_RELEASE_STATUS to "stable"
- Bootloader documentation https://github.com/raspberrypi/document ... teeprom.md
- Release notes https://github.com/raspberrypi/rpi-eepr ... e-notes.md
- EEPROM config https://github.com/raspberrypi/document ... _config.md
- PiServer https://github.com/raspberrypi/piserver
(*) A showstopper would be failure to boot from SD-CARD or recovery.bin not working or significant regression for TFTP / PiServer.
The beta branch will then be used for USD-MSD test (well, once the last few integrations headaches are resolved anyway!)
