Thanks for info. For my own benefit and for others on forums...

Can I still use SDK to build/test/deploy apps without developer rootfs?

What features specifically do I get with developer rootfs...low level
kernel control?

I plan on doing application development and not kernel development. So
developer rootfs is really for kernel developers? I was under impression
(at least for usb networking....cpu transp?) that I needed this if I
wanted to use SDK.

thanks again...
