I plan to use this thread to document the hardware and other related efforts to support IMX8 hardware, intending to add Armbian support for this board.


So far I have found:

Because the other thread was in the wrong place, so it got locked.

The other thread got locked because your post was inappropriate.  Unless you intend to develop and maintain the Armbian support for this board, there isn't any reason to post this information here.  Igor in your other post pointed you to the following link: https://docs.armbian.com/Process_Contribute/


If you intend to develop Armbian support for this new board, and wish to use this thread as a place to document your work, then this is an appropriate use of the forums.  If not this post will eventually get locked as well, as you aren't asking any question to be addressed by users of the forum.
