Krescue EDGE Screenshots


@hyphop I have a question how did you develop this OS, I understand its like linux but how did you develop it ?

its same linux! system based on openwrt (one of the best opensource linux project ) + krescue env

full sources not ready for sharing - but it will be soon


cool, so a OS built on another top of another OS like MacOS

Sweet. Been looking forward to this. Can’t wait to give it a go.

finally very good news. missing more than new roms to play with edge.

Will it also be compatible with Android ROM’s, LibreELEC images etc. using 4.4 kernels?
Then I can covert my ROM’s to krescue ones too if it’s possible.


This is minimal linux which is similar to what we use for emmc installer, it take alot of time and effort to get something like this running.

Good work @hyphop.

Universal krescue linux kernel for amlogic and rockhip almost ready

very soon we can get one krescue system which can run on every khadas soc

PS: all main sub systems for rk3399 works


Hi @hyphop
Is there anything I have to do to convert my images eg. LibreELEC .img or Android .img to krescue format to work with this correctly?


i will check howto make it more easy (and can prepare adroid and other images for Edge)

at this moment we can use simple raw or compressed streams images *.img.gz *.img.zst *.img.xz

PS: good news we have already one krescue system for both Edge and VIMx boards and can install ubuntu debian freebsd openwrt for edge (after some testing we can share it)


And so? How’s it looking? I’m poised ready for the third shot.

Are you planning on releasing a Universal Krescue? Or are you going release a beta just for the Edge first?

its already done and will be universal - its almost done! need just several days
already prepared openwrt freebsd and ubuntu images for edge


Very awesome to hear! Just got a new edge and captain today. Gonna leave it all packed up till that release comes out. Can’t wait @hyphop thanks for all you do.


we congratulate you, for now you can explore many useful topics in the Edge section and emphasize a lot of other useful information for yourself!

By the way, there is a video on the official Khadas YouTube channel!

I’ve been scanning the forums for 4 months now monitoring a few issues . Frankly I’m sick of you guys already. Haha JOKE! But really I’m looking forward to getting my mini edge laptop on line. It’s the GDP killer!


@Kaptain-Edge which GDP are you referring to ? :upside_down_face:
