  • it’s highly recommended to power via header with quality and powerful (3A) PSU – if you want stable operations and overclocking? In another word – don’t even try to power via stock micro USB power connector since your board will suffer from regular crashing and might not even boot up.
  • booting from eMMC is currently broken. In case of troubles use this tool to restore stock bootloader.
  • known issues: MALI and video acceleration libraries are not installed yet
  • overclocking to 2.2Ghz is possible with (patched) mainline kernel. Enable with:
    echo 1 > /sys/devices/system/cpu/cpufreq/boost      # enable turbo
    nano /etc/default/cpufrequtils                      # adjust new limit
    /etc/init.d/cpufrequtils restart                    # restart cpufrequtils
  • If you can’t restore your bootloader with pressing and holding the button while powering, you need to shorten this resistor with some tweezers and power the board. Then proceed with flashing stock u-boot.
While we try best possible to test provided images flaws can happen. If you experience issues please report those. Until we're able to fix latest builds stick to older images from our archive.

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.
