From BUG Wiki
The BUG is a small Linux computer. From time to time we release new versions of our custom build of Linux, and the various tools and programs that go along with it. This page will describe where to get updates, and how to apply them to your BUG.
Documentation on new features and fixed problems are contained in release notes. These documents are generated each time Bug produces a software release. It's a good idea to review the release notes before upgrading a BUG to ensure that the new software will perform as expected.

Keeping Your Kernel and Root File System Up to Date
It is important that you keep your kernel and rootfs in sync. As described below, the process for updating your kernel and rootfs varies slightly based on your version of the BUG.
- Uboot BUG upgrade - Any BUG shipped on or after May 15th, 2009
- Update your BUG memory card – Uboot loads the kernel from the root file system, so you only need to update the rootfs.
- RedBoot BUG upgrade - Any BUG shipped prior to May 15th, 2009
- BUG Boot Loader update
- Upgrade from Redboot to Uboot: http://bugcommunity.com/wiki/index.php/U-boot
- Please pay close attention to the Overview and Prerequisites sections
For more information about the kernel and rootfs, check out the Kernel and RootFS Build System page.
If after the upgrade your BUG is not performing as expected, check out the BUG_Troubleshooting page.
