    According to Stackexcange the following compression is supported: usr/Kconfig:134:config INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_NONE usr/Kconfig:145:config INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_GZIP usr/Kconfig:155:config INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_BZIP2 usr/Kconfig:168:config INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZMA usr/Kconfig:181:config INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_XZ usr/Kconfig:194:config INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZO usr/Kconfig:206:config INITRAMFS_COMPRESSION_LZ4

    If you could find the source, but I doubt you will. Even cheap China tablet makers holds the source propietary so the only source you will find is open source, and then the HW support is probably not so good so point lost. I don't have any Android build on kernel 4 so can't investigate that.

    I see, was this Android 8? I'll do some more digging then. I will test with android 6 and 7 and see what I can find out.

    Interesting, I'll have a look into the initrd issue and see what I can find. Edit: Did you try this method https://www.thegeekstuff.com/2009/07/how-to-view-modify-and-recreate-initrd-img/ or https://sites.google.com/site/sridharlreddylinux/linux-t/initrd-img or https://access.redhat.com/solutions/24029

    There is a BIG difference between Android and GNU/Linux, I can not run my NewCS carsderver under Android, among countless other applications....

    I was thinking: My Android (7.1.2) for MXQ Pro+ 4k runs on a Linux 3.14.29 kernel, that's the Linux part (and why the correct name for Ubuntu, Debian etc. is GNU/Linux). The Android image is pre-rooted so I have access to all parts of the system in theory. What if I just copy the missing GNU components from another 3.14.29 GNU/Linux into the proper directories and purge the Android specific stuff, will I get a running system? The kernel has support for all HW in the box, yes some modules I will have to keep, but if I just copy and not overwrite anything I should get a working GNU/Linux? What do you guys think, am I missing something essential here?

    Tested the Armbian_5.76_Aml-s905_Ubuntu_bionic_next_5.0.0-rc7-next-20190219-g43dc36c94-dirty on MXQ Pro + 4k >(S905x), boots fine but USB does not work so unable to log in.

    But it is fairly simple to connect a RJ45->USB network card to any box without ethernet, I use it on my Guleek I8S running Linux Mint 19......

    Woah. Thanks, do you know anything about the 905x2/y2 performance wise? Is it even worth thinking about?

    @balbes150I was looking at this box https://www.aliexpress.com/item/A95X-Plus-Smart-TV-Box-4GB-Amlogic-S905-Y2-Android-8-1-4GB-DDR4-32GB-ROM/32953087994.html?spm=2114.10010108.1000014.2.44b24a952D1axa&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreOtherSeller&scm=1007.13338.115306.0&scm_id=1007.13338.115306.0&scm-url=1007.13338.115306.0&pvid=06e2fa39-0ebf-4815-8644-b60da8d29e59 Will Armbian on it be plain sailing or is there some quirk with the S905Y2 cpu that ruins the fun? And what about the ARM Dvalin MP2 GPU ?

    I have Norwegian ketboard(s), but the one I use for testing is a small simplified wireless keyboard with tackball...

    No I did not copy it from the website I wrote it by hand. I have only one type of ' on my keyboard, except for "
