U-boot upgrading on Pine64 checked out from public tech library
I own a Pine64 in service as my home thermostat, among other things. Point is that my Pine64 stays in my house for the winter, I don't take it out of service for any kind of development purposes.  I don't live in my home much, so for development purposes, I check out a Pine64 SBC from a tech library nearby where my wife lives with me much of the time (long story).

I ran longsleep's script line (below) on the public SBC:

bash <(curl -s https://raw.githubusercontent.com/longsleep/build-pine64-image/master/simpleimage/platform-scripts/pine64_update_uboot.sh)

Note that this tech library has their own image which they expect to function in their Pine64, but I am testing MY image in their board.  (My image might be DietPi or whatever with a goal of getting to a nice looking, user-friendly GUI front end.  OpenHAB is on my radar.)

After I ran the uboot updating script line while testing a Pine 64 image, the library's Pine 64 board will no longer boot into their image.  Can someone please explain: Does longsleep's aforementioned uboot script line forever afterwards render a Pine64 board dependent on specifically configured boot partitions/files that this tech library doesn't use?  Have I virtually bricked their property if they won't change their image to match what I did to their board?
