Hi Artur,

First of all:
You should use fs-UUIDs instead of /dev/sdX1, if possible.
This way of finding the right partition is default in Debian.

AFAIU those commands are executed sequentially, right?
In that case your file is created, modified, and then gets overwritten
by update-grub:
# cat /usr/sbin/update-grub
    set -e
    exec grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg "$@"

So you have just to remove the last line you posted.
