Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

@hexdump so i do not need to configure / compile anything? all the control of uboot is done via that armbianEnv.txt - ie i only edit that file and thats it? thanks

@hexdump i installed latest ubuntu - armbian on sd card;

then i shrinked original partition rootfs; created now one; copied data from shrinked to the new one. And i want to boot from that new one.


ie if sd card was 


now its

sdf1 (old rootfs)

sdf2 (new rootfs)


And i want make uboot boot from sdf2




i think

boot/boot.scr has to be also updated ?


setenv devnum "0"
setenv rootdev "/dev/mmcblk${devnum}p1"


i believe uboot has to be somehow recompiled to point to /dev/mmcblk0p2 instead of /dev/mmcblk0p1
