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.

I don't believe this method (and similar methods) work for Raspberry Pi's due to snapshots not being built ...
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...RRENT-arm-armv6-RPI-B-20171227-r327236.img.xz
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?

[USER=41855]obsigna[/USER]'s method is right, I has test it on my raspberry pi3, upgrade success from 12.1 to 12.2 rc2
