These instructions assume that apex has been configured for a 1024k kernel region

==> Flashing a new kernel:

< send zImage via xmodem>

apex> erase nor:256k+1024k

apex> copy 0x30008000+1024k nor:256k

apex> boot <this will boot the newly flashed kernel with the existing rootfs>

==> Flashing the new rootfs:

apex> xr 0x30008000

<send rootfs.arm.ext2.gz via xmodem>

apex> erase nor:1280k+1024k

apex> copy 0x30008000+1024k nor:1280k
