In order to boot Armbian from VIM3 with pre-flashed OS on eMMC you need to:

  1. Download Khadas Rescue tool for VIM3 and flash it to a spare SD card
  2. Insert SD card, attach USB keyboard + monitor or a serial console and boot into Khadas Rescue Tool
  3. Choose: Advanced -> eMMC -> Fast erase. Go back and select “power off”

* Specifications differ from hardware revision, model and software support level



BASH or ZSH shell, standard Debian/Ubuntu utilities. Features can be adjusted with menu-driven utility. Login is possible via serial, HDMI or SSH.


Minimal, server or Desktop. We work with XFCE, Gnome and Cinnamon but more is possible to build: Mate, KDE, Budgie, Deepin, i3, …


No bloatware or spyware. Special utilities are completely optional. Suitable for newcomers and professionals.


Distributed images are optimized for flash media (SD/eMMC/SSD) and compacted to real data size.


Armbian is optimized on kernel and userspace level. ZRAM & ZSWAP support, browser profile memory caching, garbage commit delay.


Security level can be adjusted with the armbian-config. OS is reviewed by professionals within the community.


Maintainers and community have deep understanding how HW work. We are seniors with 30+ years of experience in Linux + embedded Linux.


Armbian provides open source build framework to build a distribution of optimised Linux hardware interface for armhf, aarch64 and x86.

We provide a selection of images that fits hardware best. If you need different image – use build framework and make whatever you need. Build framework relies on Debian and Ubuntu packages – you can build any combination – stable, old stable or rolling release.

Minimal images comes without armbian-config, armbian-zsh, build-essentials, Python, DKMS, … If you are interested in detailed comparison, CLI images also have those packages:

Make sure you have a good & reliable boot media (SD card / USB key) and a proper power supply. Archives can be flashed with Etcher (all OS) directly.

Insert the SD card into the slot, connect a cable to your network if possible or a display and power your board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes a bit longer.

Support is provided in one of two ways:
