!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!USE AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a flow Ola put together for reflashing your board (with the latest Uboot). Don't use it unless you know what you are doing (and have a Porcupine/JTAG cable).

Hello, very useful guide. I have a few questions:

1) Using a JTAG cable and a porcupine, is it possible to brick the Parallella? Or is it always possible to revert to a previous boot method?

2) Is this compatible with the Kickstarter/Embedded Parallella?

3) Is there a backup flash image somewhere that is shipped on the Kickstarter/Embedded Parallella versions? Would this be just the equivalent of following these steps using the corresponding Vivado project for the image desired? Or just using the parallella-flash repo unmodified?


*I have successfully flashed the Parallella and have things working as before, however I am still interested in some form of a backup flash which is shipped with the Parallella Embedded version.*
