I have perform the following command into ssh shell:

sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get update
sudo reboot

But I still have an old kernel version, infact:

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ uname -a
Linux raspberrypi 3.10.25+ #622 PREEMPT Fri Jan 3 18:41:00 GMT 2014 armv6l GNU/Linux

Why my kernel is not updated? What am I missing? How can I solve?



Go to [ https://github.com/Hexxeh/rpi-firmware/commits/master ] and find the commit key for the version you want.

Then use the following command will update to the last version.

sudo rpi-update 81355451bcd9a214fdf221ca322b6ca681d8da55
  • mmm but why in the past days I updated it without execute this command simply using sudo apt-get upgrade and sudo apt-get update ? Have I simoly to use the last in time version of commit key in the website that you give me? – AndreaNobili May 30 '14 at 8:48

    sudo rpi-update without any other parameters will update to the latest firmware. – HeatfanJohn May 30 '14 at 13:15

    @HeatfanJohn it happens to me that it will not update to the lates firmware with sudo rpi-update (I still in the same version) – mikmik May 30 '14 at 13:21
  • sudo rpi-update is a different command than sudo apt-get update, are you doing rpi-update? Your question doesn't show rpi-update. – HeatfanJohn May 30 '14 at 13:26
  • @HeatfanJohn I'm not who asked this question, one time I made sudo rpi-update but still in the same version who is not the last one, so I had to specify the last commit to be updated – mikmik May 30 '14 at 13:29
