Нet offers a simple solution to make charging usb-flash with https://www.slax.org/download/7.0.8/...0.8-x86_64.zip, download and install the script flash.sh

You flash the parameter file?
with three sections as: mtdparts=rk29xxnand:0x00008000@0x00002000(resource),0x00008000@0x0000A000(boot),-@0x00012000(linuxroot)

whether there is a screenshot log or flash?

I will try exactly how you're mentioning in that screenshot. But where I am now I have no files downloaded, because your host is down and I can't download them. Can you fix it pls?

Ok, I installed it. I didn't have the time to test it at maximum, only I saw it booting until XFCE login. Now I'm curious if I can install a Kodi/XMBC to test its multimedia capacities, especially video hw acceleration (1080p, blu ray), although I may be a bit skeptical at this.

Smile Firefly port... Possibily work on ENY EKB328B?

board already ordered, will soon be made assemblage of images Slackware-current

Information about installing the GPU drivers
This is very interesting. I just bought a ENY EKB328 set-top box running the same Rockchip quad cpu. Its only fault is the Android 4.4 which is awful. The specs look so similar to the Firefly that I am tempted to try to load it but I am at a loss. Show me a PC or a HP-UX or other Unix workstation and I'd be all right, but I am brand new to ARM and the only thing I've actually used before is a Genessi Smarttop on whicgh I'm running Kali Linux from an SD card. Have you seen the specs on the EKB328?

(http://enybox.en.alibaba.com/product..._Mini_PC.html#!)

I have never flashed an arm device and though I am nott worried about the cost, I'd hate to brick it. Any suggestions or guidance would be greatly appreciated.
