You don't need a second SDcard: if it fails then you just need another PC you can edit the /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf file on. Either add a efaultt line or make sure the 4.4 section is the first one.

e.g. with the file below I boot 4.4.197

Code:
$ cat /boot/extlinux/extlinux.conf
timeout 10
menu title select kernel

default kernel-4.4.197

label kernel-4.4.202
   kernel /boot/vmlinuz-4.4.202-1237-rockchip-ayufan-gfd4492386213
   initrd /boot/initrd.img-4.4.202-1237-rockchip-ayufan-gfd4492386213
   devicetreedir /boot/dtbs/4.4.202-1237-rockchip-ayufan-gfd4492386213
