Firmware version and update?

Added by Anonymous almost 7 years ago

I was just thinking the other day if this project keeps the firmware files updated. I ssh'd into /boot and see start_x.elf, so I'm going to take a guess and say that is the firmware that resides on the card...but does it get the latest updates? (bleeding edge)

Showtime can upgrade everything on the machine, but I don't really push a new firmware version unless there's a bug that needs it for fixing.

Does the firmware version on the card affect the memory split at all? In the past on debian I used sudo wget https://github.com/raspberrypi/firmware/raw/master/boot/arm384_start.elf -O /boot/start.elf to change the memory split.
In my config in /boot on Showtime I changed gpu_mem to "384" would this have any adverse issues, or does it not change anything without the firmware update on the sd card. Sorry for the confusion.
