Your comment concurs with what I feel from everything I read here.
For linux - no one wants a generic bin-blob. Its linux, we will do it ourselves with the options we desire/need.
All the images supplied here do not do everything I want, I have to make my own. So just give us all the information/patches for those that can.
Sure, make a generic Linux and Android for those that cannot. But if you gave us all info, you would probably end up with lots of images posted available for specific tasks that people who cannot do their own can download anyway.
On another note bea11, I doubt that openwrt/and any type of firewall box would be too good on this hardware. I am yet to see the GB ethernet get to 1GB, and even if it does, the other addon ethernet ports (LAN/WAN/DMZ - so at least one more) would never cut it speed wise.
Openwrt as AP - maybe, but I can think of few options half the price! (and less waste of hardware power)
Khadas - Every single day that you delay giving us ALL the FOSS and patches that you use to release, You are shooting yourself in the business foot.
Every day that you do not have detailed howto’s for trickier processes, and better documentation (honestly, the docs here are rubbish. I feel sorry for non native English speakers, its a double translation whammy) people will be less inclined to take a chance with the hardware.
Another 2 cents from me (and it has been said in the forums before), the good thriving hardware out in the world started with excellent documentation. They did not waste time releasing image after image (and most of the releases here dont fix anything - or are only minor pointless releases).
The excellent products out there gave their users excellent documentation and examples/scripts/patches/etc right at the start.
Two prong approach - enthusiasts could do what they wanted/needed. The devs could get on without interruption, and had the enthusiasts work to help them along with.
Regardless of how good you and your engineers think you are, there is always someone better. Don’t offer them what you have available, then you only hurt yourself.
