frankly speaking, chance you brick your VIM device is pretty high.
The ARM device generally needs Uboots and Kernel+Rootfs.
Uboots is used for configurations of device itself. Usually I'm try explain to my colleagues is like bios for x86 systems with one but. Everything is hard-coded so you cannot expect that much posibilities and options like in bios and so universal freedom. Yes, you can post-configure uboot parameters, but memory, pins, devices, busses, etc.. all is fix. So if uboot not perfectly fit, you are most like brick device.
Kernel can be shared, but still high chance that is hangs. Missing drivers, special wifi cards, this and that.
rootfs is just couple of files and some GUI so no big deal to share
Of course you can try because I'm not expecting HW damages by applying wrong image, just system will hangs. For that actions I'm highly recommend to have console output, like http://docs.khadas.com/develop/SetupSerialTool/ or try any better approach to get serial output
There is general how-to to update Amlogic device, see
and how-to to get back 'update mode' even VIM is hangs. (specially last mode is your last for sure hope )
and last point, to explain, i'm highly expecting that developers for that kind of TvBoxes using kind of applications note of Amlogic to makes such kind of box, because all boxes are pretty same (it's easy, fail safe, reduce developing cost + time). So even are different shape, material, memory size, etc.. but all are same, of course, than some img files can be shared. I can imagine some key differences in VIM against that Boxes, what kill using their image or makes some incompatibility in VIM.. but sure, try and let us know, maybe I'm wrong..
note: before somebody highlight that: about this "not expecting HW damages" sure, if some GPIO will be set incorrectly and in VIM is Input and their images is like Output, and on another side is something to tide signal down or up, yes.. than pins of 905x can be permanently damaged.. But still I feel safe, most likely will just causes hotter chip than damage, but there is of course chance !
So be 100% sure, you need have to compare schematic of both devices to be sure, there is not kind of surprises..
