So While I am waiting for VIM2 drivers/kernel/uboot etc to be posted to github this week (
Source for Ubuntu release)
My plan is to compile my own ubuntu and make it the primary OS on VIM2. However since I have so much emmc memory, I might as well add Android (or maybe even LibreELEC later) as an option boot.
However, I dont care about Android and I am not interested in compiling my own - so I would use one posted in firmware. (
So the questions are:
.Will the firmware (but uboot probably more likely) allow me to dual boot?
.Have you made a Ubuntu that allows you to reboot in to Android? (Same as your current Android, that option boots into Ubuntu - But the other way around!)
.How could I (or is it even possible) use one of your android images? Would you need to make a special one?
.Time to start thinking about making multi-booting easy on this device. 64G emmc means that I want all these images burned into emmc and a grub-like boot loader.
Have you tried making a grub loader?
offtopic somewhat - How is UEFI coming on?
Thanks for you development board, it seems very exciting for a good price!
I just ordered my VIM2 card and one thing that decided me is the UEFI support.
So just a “simple” question: when will the UEFI firmware be released?
I think that UEFI will be based on TianoCore version, isn’t it?
And as this is an OpenSource board I hope that the source code will be released too :smiley:
Amlogic still don't have any plan to apply the Linux license form S912 SoC, so you didn't see LibreELEC support S912 devices. And different with VIM1, we target VIM2 more at Mirco ARM server marketing, that's the reason we add WOL and SPIFlash/UEFI feature on VIM2. BTW, anybody did ARM UEFI developing before?
