Notice to all users: please do not apt upgrade the OS at this time. The 5.9 kernel package breaks u-boot.

If your phone is not booting you can mount the /boot partition elsewhere and replace the Image.gz dtb and initrd.img symlinks to point to the kernel 5.8

@josias
I've heard it is through SSH shell. I tried a couple of days ago on the phone itself (terminal) and it didn't work out well.

@josias @mobian apparently not, a reflash is required:

“We highly recommend that you reflash this release (or a more recent nightly build) instead of trying to upgrade. Upgrading from a build older than 20201113 will bring you into "unsupported and likely to break things" territory, and you'll be on your own here.”
