Flashing an octagon-sf8008 from the command line will install and replace
the existing image on the current image location.
Is it possible to flash in this manner to a different slot? Thks.

Yes. Use -m ofgwrite option to select the slot.

 

E.g. this will flash the image into slot 2:

ofgwrite -m2 -r -k <path to the image files>

Have just flashed slot 4 with success. Is it also possible to flash sda slots or is this restricted to the first 4 slots. Thks once again.

Yes, is possible.

I can't test myself at the moment. So better be sure that you have a full backup and that you don't have any important data on the SD card!

ofgwrite -n -m0 -ksda0 -rsda1 <path to image files>

The -n parameter is for a test. You can look at the output and your box won't be flashed.

Important: Exchange the sda0 with a kernel partition on the SD card and the sda1 with a rootfs partition.

And please don't change the -m0 if you want to flash partitions on the SD card.

If you're sure that the output looks good, you can flash by removing the -n parameter.

Following  your instructions, I flashed 2 Images on 2 different sda partitions and both flashed successfully. 
Many thanks once again.
