Is there any benefit at all to flashing the new Debian image from Planet, as opposed to simply using apt to upgrade everything?

For Android, I guess flashing is the only way to upgrade. But perhaps I would then simply flash the boot etc partitions using the new firmware, and leave Debian and Android user data un-touched?

Well, the new kernel can be gotten through other means...

But the reason I wanted to do it was to get the ability to have two different kernels, for experimentation.

you could probably get kexec to chain load a new kernel?

Well Debian won't finish to boot, after I updated yesterday (with 'stretch', 'stretch-backports' and 'debian-security' in apt Debian sources).
I've waited half an hour twice, so I think it's safe to assume my install is borked as of now.
Re-flashing... ye-ah.
