Boot Raspberry Pi / OpenPlotter 2 From USB SSD

Thanks for the quick reply.  I flashed back to the production firmware and all is well again.  It looks like the original solution, from the 1'st post, will be the only way to boot from a USB SSD until the new beta kernel is put into production.

This is good information.  Many have been waiting for the pi 4 to receive native boot from USB, and many, as I did, rushed and will rush to try the beta kernel.  When the production kernel is updated and it is safe, I'll post here.

For anyone who did try the beta kernel, getting back to safety is quite easy as outlined in the article that @Sailoog referenced above.  The commands are pasted below:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt install --reinstall libraspberrypi0 libraspberrypi-{bin,dev,doc} raspberrypi-bootloader raspberrypi-kernel
There's a new release of the bootloader (NO rpi-update firmware changes) on the following thread.
Just interested in the views of JamieFL & others on SDD ...

As a chartplotter on a boat, my OP2 system works just fine on a RPi 3b + 16GB SDcard. 
Im happy that performance is as good as is necessary for a chartplotter and thats with lots of Node_red and SignalK stuff going on as well as OCPN 

JamieFL, Don't get me wrong I'm not suggesting that the SDD isnt a nice option but do you think it is worth having if your Pi is dedicated to OpenPlotter?
