intructions for recovery or external update:
thanks to https://github.com/gcwnow
This work for GMENUNX.
You can copy the kernel or rootfs to the internal SD card of the RG350 using FTP, SFTP or SCP. I recommend SCP since it is just one line on the command prompt. It does require setting up SSH keypair authentication though.
scp vmlinuz.bin [email protected]:/media/system/
scp modules.squashfs [email protected]:/media/system/update_m.bin
scp rootfs.squashfs [email protected]:/media/system/update_r.bin
Reboot the RG350 to activate the new kernel or rootfs. Don't use the reset button: part of the kernel or of the rootfs may not have been flushed from the write cache yet.
You can use:
ssh [email protected] RG350:media/data/local/home# reboot
only for beers
