rpi-update

An easier way to update the firmware of your Raspberry Pi

To install the tool, run the following command as root:

wget http://goo.gl/1BOfJ -O /usr/bin/rpi-update --quiet && chmod +x /usr/bin/rpi-update

To then update your firmware, simply run the following command as root:

rpi-update

By default, the 224MB memory split will be used. If you'd like to use the 192MB split, then type:

rpi-update 192

If you'd like to use the 128MB memory split, then the command is the same as the above, except with 128 instead of 192.

After the firmware has been sucessfully updated, you'll need to reboot to load the new firmware.

This tool is experimental, and may screw up your install. If you have problems with it, post an issue to this GitHub repo and I'll see if I can help you.
