And 2GByte of RAM ? That is the main goal of pats double boot option.

Did you use this newest unified (for cb2 and ct) kernel  3.4.75+  ?

I can't update too.
I have tried cubian-update and apt-get update+upgrade and it doesn't update the kernel and boot loader or anything cubian related stuff. Only some debian package updated.

Where cubian-update get the new kernel images and modules?
I read on github, that apt will take the job that now cubian-update do.
So your kernel and modules will be available at packages.cubian.org?
When this thing planned to happen?

Thanks for the awesome Cubian! :)

Does the system oops and enter a reboot loop? How much memory are you reserving for the framebuffer ('sunxi_fb_mem_reserve' kernel cmdline option)?
