Latest linux-image-bcm2836_4.9.58+ after installation will not boot anymore, screen blank, no activity.

None of the rescue modes work (rescue,rescue_early,rescue_late), neither holding shift while booting.

Issue is definitely with the kernel since I was able to restore it by copying fresh xbianboot partition from XBian_Latest_rpi3.img.gz where 4.9.56+ is used.

After it booted and network is up then I downgraded both kernel and headers from rpi2-stretch repository by hand.

This needs to be looked at since I could reproduce the issue couple of times by upgrading again to 4.9.58+.

Ok, seems that this is a broken kernel, will have to check this

None of the rescue modes work (rescue,rescue_early,rescue_late), neither holding shift while booting.

Rescue mode is only available if initramfs is enabled. Do you have enabled this?

Just tested kernel. Have to confirm that kernel 4.9.58 (build?) is definitely broken. Checked build logs, everything looks ok. Have to investigate what's going wrong there. Broken kernel deleted from Repo

Same issue with rpi2 and rpi3.
Copied kernel.img & initrd.gz from last downloadable image to root partition, booting fine.
Then update to last 4.9.58+-1508858583 and reboot.
Everything seems ok now !
Thank you
