load other .dtb file


I just finished reading the following Introduction to Device Trees: http://www.ofitselfso.com/BeagleNotes/AboutTheDeviceTree.pdf

I have a Beaglebone Green (not wireless). Running the version.sh tool, I can see that the used dtb file is named am335x-boneblack-uboot-univ.dtb.

So I have 2 questions which I didn’t find answers to:

  1. Is the BBG supposed to use this dtb?
  2. And how can I use a different dtb? (not necessarily related to Question 1)

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
