SX-OS sometimes boots OFW instead of CFW

This has started happening since 2.8.x release. When I restart the switch with the dongle (or without the dongle in 2.9.2 beta since it is supported) the SX-OS boot screen is shown and the switch boots OK, but sometimes (like 1 in 5 tries) it will boot into OFW instead the CFW. After rebooting again it will boot the CFW. The CFW is on emunand on the switch flash. It is more annoyance than anything since you have to boot it twice sometimes, but would like to know if this is normal or if there is something wrong with the SD card (it checks out ok in windows).

Are you running autoRCM and how are you verifying that it is booting to OFW?

Yes, I have autorcm enabled... and like showstopper I have the Light theme in OFW and the dark one in CFW so I immdiately see which FW I am on when it boots. It is the same with latest 2.9.2 and 9.0.1 CFW. OFW is still on 4.0.

I get this too sometimes and it was a pita because I had to use the jig and reboot until it worked.
Now, with SXOS 2.9.2, I just do Restart (no jig needed) and I'm happy (TX still needs to fix this though)
I'm on FW 8.1.0 emunand.
