OOWOW looks amazing!

From what I’ve observed of it on a couple VIM4 preview videos, OOWOW is a real game changer!!!

Oowow Looks a lot like krescue on spi. We can do the same on vim3 as well.

Interesting concept.

I think its good to have something on spi instead of just putting it which adds cost and never using it.

It would be much better if there was a complete firmware on spi which could boot from multiple io.

But oowow is a brilliant concept too.

Great work by khadas team.

oowow can be run at any time if you need to perform essential maintenance services on your device. (for example no need other software or additional devices anymore for install reinstall restore OS … device easily can be standalone - and its really amazing )

SPI-flash contain oowow & u-boot together! this composition provide many other features

  • boot efi distros
  • boot any linux distros from any removable sources like SD, USB-storage, etc and network
  • no need additional boot loader its already presented on SPI-flash
  • or run oowow if need device maintain or get fail-safe mode

Interesting, so if i insert an sdcard with just linux boot files without any uboot then it will use uboot from. Spi and boot into linux from sd card?

yes absolutely right, same for any other removable devices SD USB etc

I chose and installed ubuntu on emmc. I want to try Android now, is there a way to go back to oowow menu to erase and install android now?
