General updates, I have not been active enough.
Firstly, the default 4.4 kernel for Tinker board now supports the Raspberry Pi 7″ display out of the box.
I have purchased a NanoPi Duo, a board I am interested in because I personally enjoy embedded applications, to the point where I prefer not to have the built-in connectors, it’s harder working around them than it is to add them later on. I’ll have a review of that after bit.
Le Potato: Armbian Next images (4.13) available, I am looking into using the mainline u-boot being worked on by Bay Libre (current Amlogic official U-boot is 2015.1)
