Cannot boot to Kali SD card after uboot upgrade
#1
I recently upgraded uboot after upgrading manjaro and it suggesting a uboot upgrade.  I am now unable to boot to my Kali SD card image as I could previously.

This is unfortunately very common. Hopefully your Manjaru doesn't quit working, preventing you from booting at all.

The solution is to install a different U-Boot, or Tow-Boot.

appreciate the response.  Do you have a preference U-Boot or Tow-Boot?  And is there any good documentation for installation or reinstallation?

You could check /var/cache/pacman/pkg/uboot* for the previous version

You can also freely download the U-Boot manual and customize yours. I'm using U-Boot for the PBP (Kali), Tow Boot on the PP (Mobian, had to switch for an update) and haven't had to change anything on the PT2.
