If you are still running stock u-boot then yes, it possible to boot into stock.

If you have installed the new u-boot then no, it won't boot into stock again (not yet). This is something on my TODO list, but low priority.

Hi!

I'm not sure, in which of the existing threads I shall ask, but I'll try it here:

In the German Zyxel support forum there is a new "project" for booting Debian 8 from a USB pendrive. OMV is included: http://www.zyxelforum.de/debian-8-auf-usb-stick-oder-sd-karte-t11232.html

I tried it on the NSA325v2 but there is a problem with a too old kernel.

Now my questions:
1. Is it possible to update the kernel and still boot without issues into the standard firmware (4.81)?
2. Which kernel should I take (and from where) for the NSA325v2? The linked Kirkwood kernel?

Kuki,

There are 2 installation threads here:

Released kernel/rootfs: http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?2,12096
Released u-boot: http://forum.doozan.com/read.php?3,12381

It will not be possible to boot stock FW after installing new u-boot. At least not yet (I have not tried this, since it is low priority on my list).

Take the kernel from the release thread above if you want to keep your rootfs and run with new kernel. If you just want to install new kernel, then it is best that you post the dmesg output from the existing Debian installation on your box, so I can be sure if it will work.

Take the rootfs from the release thread above if you can start from beginning. This is the best way. And also install new u-boot if you don't care about stock FW.
