Yes, it should work, although I can only test it on my normal Pi 3B (BCM2837). When I open the fat32 partition, there are amongst other files:
Code: Select all
system-boot/bcm2710-rpi-3-b.dtb system-boot/bcm2710-rpi-3-b-plus.dtb system-boot/bcm2837-rpi-3-b.dtb
For completeness I'll point out some problems with flash-kernel.... The 3B+ is not supported (bug 1764491), nor is the CM3 or new 3A+. Whenever a new revision of a board comes out it breaks.

For desktop use cases, over time Raspbian gets better while it also gets worse. It's now 6 versions behind a supported version of Chromium and 12 versions behind on Firefox. New distros have the potential to fill such gaps, and this one in particular works well enough to give hope.
Along the lines of desktop usage, my opinion is that it would be nice to look into accelerated graphics. Surprisingly I was able to modprobe vc4 without error, but nothing feels GPU-accelerated (glxgears runs fast but is using two full CPU cores).You can share your opinions and possible bugz / fixes here if there will be something i'll report that back to fixing to the dev team.
At least on Ubuntu Server 19.04 I get cmdline.txt and config.txt overwrite on every kernel upgrade (or, to be more specific, on update-initramfs step) even with default linux-firmware-raspi2 package instead of raspi3-firmware. How to preserve cmdline.txt and config.txt content between kernel upgrades or which script I should edit to get necessary variable into cmdline.txt and config.txt on every kernel upgrade?feelslikeautumn wrote: ↑Fri Jan 11, 2019 4:18 pmTo use kms/fkms you need to add an entry to config.txt. The caveat to this is that raspi3-firmware (bizarrely also included on the image) will overwrite your config.txt on a kernel update so you need to actually edit some random script file too. Which is one of the reasons I don't recommend raspi3-firmware.
