Is there any way to test custom built images without burning sdcard?

I'm trying the build environment on VirtualBox and modifying settings and adding new scripting. I have had a habit of testing each modification right away, but the compile/burn/on-device-test is not logical.

 

How can I emulate a device / setup / install process? Is there any way?

Thank you Igor, I already had examined them briefly. Very nice work indeed... But not applicable for my case (I think)... I'm not bulk-producing...

 

What I'm trying to do (for now) is simply adding some drivers, adding some scripting to customize-image.sh, such as additions to motd, several users/groups/rights management, pre-installing some additional software through apt-get, adding some custom scripts under /usr/local/bin etc.

 

Testing this would require installation of the customized Armbian and checking the logs etc.

 

Is there a working armhf emulator for x32-64? That would ease the burden alot... I found QEMU just now, did you try it?

My development environment is on Win 10 and I don't mind speed loss caused by emulation.

 

Or I'm really missing the point :/

Yes its is. But. The only image that I manage to boot - didn't really put much efforts to see if any else - was Cubieboard 1.  But that was long time ago ...
