I started with bone-ubuntu-14.04-2014-05-06-2gb.img.xz and want to upgrade to the new kernel configured and built with the udlfb module to get my Lilliput 7" USB LCD working.
These are the files generated and installed to the SD card:-
The 4 LED's flash on then off and this happens periodically.
There is no initrd file in /boot and no mention on http://elinux.org/BeagleBoardUbuntu#BeagleBone how to generate one.
Sorry Sid, that "v3.9.x" isn't going to boot on the bone..
Mainline was usable around v3.12.x?
OK, that's what stable-kernel gave me.
I'll take a look at 3.12 series.
For the bone, look at:
the 3.8/3.14/3.15 branches
build_kernel.sh generated these which I have not yet installed.

Wondering if I still need an initrd file and if so how to generate it.
I only just saw this and I have already built 3.12, see my previous post.
The initrd can only be easily generated on the target, while it's
needed for boot. It doesn't require matching kernel modules, as by
default my config sets the file system partition and the interfaces
built-in to load the rootfs.
