  2. fetching the latest ARMv8 GENERIC64 image by j.McNeill from invisible.ca/arm (lots of ARM bootable images here, with UEFI support)
  3. burning it somewhere, then rsyncing everything but my custom config.txt (overclocking, VGA monitor) from its /boot partition to my Rpi3's /boot dir
  4. reboot: voilĂ  uname will return the expected kernel version
Hope this helps,

Hey,
today I gave it a try but it didn't work for me.
- I downloaded the image by j.McNeill (for RPI2)
- unpacked it
- mounted the IMG
- copied everything to my SD (modified the config.txt before)
- could not boot from SD

-> copied the old files to SD and I am able to boot again.

What's wrong?
