Hmm ok... So it seems that in cases where you really just install a binary
(e.g. copying it to/usr/bin/) this is actually a viable option and won't
break on OTA updates? That's great to know. I was always worried that any
modification in rw mode would very likely cause future OTA upgrades to fail
and leave you with a broken system.
IIUC this only works for *delta* OTA upgrades. If you don't upgrade
often enough or change channels, the whole image will be replaced and
all changes lost.
The other point is that even with deltas there's a chance of breakage if
you replace a file that won't get then replaced back by deltas and
things go out of sync.
