Registered by Fathi Boudra on 2013-01-30

The current Snowball master image is old and doesn't allow to run latest Linaro Ubuntu engineering builds.
The new master image requirements are:
* latest U-boot
* ability to load uInitrd
* ability to load device tree

Whiteboard

[dpigott: 20-Feb-2013] Need updated tool from infrastructure for licence clickthrough - done a workaround but can't check in master-image-scripts.
[dpigott: 26-Feb-2013] Master image is dying with kernel panic on wget for test image - contacted Ulf to see if there is a solution.
[dzin: 28-Feb-2013] Waiting for upstream fix. Move to next cycle.
[dpigott: 13-Mar-2013] Got new image, but it can't pass health check - have sent details to Andrey - awaiting a response
[dpigott: 27-Mar-2013] New image passes health check - now deploying across other snowballs
[dpigott: 27-Mar-2013] Image has no ethernet - awaiting assistance from Andry
[dpigott: 8-Apr-2013] Now have master image and boot parameters set up - burning all other snowballs
[dpigott: 24-Apr-2013] All updated; 2 dead boards. Snowball01 ethernet won't work; Snowball02 can't reflash the emmc

Meta:
Headline: Snowball master image is now able to run latest Linaro engineering builds using device tree.
Acceptance: A successful boot test run of latest Linaro engineering builds with U-Boot >= 2013.01, uInitrd and device tree.
