As part of some important commercial work, I wanted to start a discussion on getting required fastboot support into snapd. @morphis, @ondra and @niemeyer as well as some other people started discussing this at the last sprint @ The Hague last autumn, and I’d like to continue this conversation here and get a finalized solution in place since this project has a very tight schedule.
So first off, let’s define exactly what this means. We need to be able to flash a core snap and a kernel snap for a 3.4-based UC16 system to a system flash device. 3.4 kernel support isn’t possible today, but we’re working on a solution in parallel for this. I can’t get more specific on the device details, but would be happy to provide any technical details in private.
@morphis and @ondra: my understanding is that you came up with a proposed design for this at the sprint. Would you mind detailing how that would work here so that we can start discussing it and get approval for a final solution. Then we can agree on who’s going to do the implementation and when it can be completed by.
