Is there any smooth way to update CURRENT system for embedded?

Hi all,

Don't tell me I need flash image every time or compile source code on embedded system. :confused:

It just a Raspberry Pi 3 model B and freebsd-update seems not available for the 12.0-CURRENT.

Thanks.

Some time ago I wrote a Howto about the most smooth way I can imagine.

Howto: Updating FreeBSD x.y-CURRENT installations using respective snapshots

I am following CURRENT on my Beaglebone Black ever since (updated it already about 10times). Even the switch from ARMv6 to ARMv7 went smooth using the same procedure.
I don't believe this method (and similar methods) work for Raspberry Pi's due to snapshots not being built (for technical reasons, I believe, though what exactly I have no idea)

Believing is different from knowing. Who wants to believe goes to the church, who wants to know does a research, perhaps starting here:

ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/s...URRENT-arm-armv7-RPI2-20171227-r327236.img.xz
ftp://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/s...NT-arm64-aarch64-RPI3-20171227-r327236.img.xz

(for technical reasons, I believe, though what exactly I have no idea)
I believe, I don't need to understand this, do I?
