I've just added a new .deb package to the ubilinux.org repo continuing the latest kernel and kernel modules. It's just a re-packaging of the files from the Intel Yocto R2 BETA build. You don't have to re-flash your Edison, you can do a simple apt-get install of the new kernel, and reboot. There's couple of extra mount/unmount/copy steps, as dpkg does not play nice with the way the /boot partition is formatted (vfat), so we have to do a few manual steps to get around this.
apt-get install kernel-package-3.10.17-poky-edison-r2
cp /boot/vmlinuz /root
cp /root/vmlinuz /boot
The apt-get update gets the latest package listings.
Unmount the (vfat) /boot exposing the /boot directory underneath (ext4)
apt-get install the package, which will install the new kernel in /boot and the new modules in the new dir under /lib/modules.
Copy the new kernel out of /boot
Mount the vfat /boot
Copy the new kernel into the vfat /boot
If you then re-boot, you'll be up-and running with the latest kernel from Intel. Please see the Intel Downloads section for the Yocto packages and also the Release Notes.
