Little things that matter in language design

even if I am trying to compile my own android kernel, there doesn't seem to be any way of installing it on a device in a way that will let me fall back to the older kernel if I run into problems with the new one (the equivalent to the old lilo -R option)
the integration of things into the mainline will greatly help the first problem, but I still don't know a good solution for the second one.

It's _always_ possible even if your firmware is totally corrupted and even battery controller is dead. In some cases it requires a magic jig, though (a 101kOhm resistor shorting two USB lines).
