Hi Chris,

You need to provide more detail.

If the MTD partition holding the kernel is formatted as jffs2 then you should be able to just mount and then copy across the new kernel image.

If it's a raw partition then I think you can just do 'cp ImageFile /dev/mtdx'

Regards, Stuart

Has anyone worked out a mechanism that would allow one to re-write the Kernel MTD block with a fresh Kernel from inside linux?  If I try to mount this partition jffs2, I get lots of errors and an inevitable mount failure.
