Each supported Armbian image can be made from scratch – from latest kernel and u-boot sources, updated upstream packages and our most recent bug fixes and improvements.

You can re-make live bootable image or just a kernel+dtb(hardware configuration) package which you transfer to your image and install with:
dpkg -i linux-image-[branch]-family.deb linux-dtb-[branch]-family.deb. In that process you can enforce many customization. To the kernel or user space. Read more.
