Sure. Please send some instructions my way on how to proceed. I know 
there is a u-boot manual, but I don't wanna mess up my mac mini m1 
system. So I'd stick with instructions on your end. Ideally, the action 
is reversible. I always keep complete system backups, though. My current 
version is asahi-v2022.10-1 as far as I can tell. I'm used to git, so 
pulling and making would be the slightest issue.

All the best and thanks,
