    Hi I have ordered what appears to be a cx-01 but the spec sheet includes allegedly a micro sd slot, I think the seller has mistakenly put the mk802 spec up and doesn’t seem technical.
    Can you tell me if it is the CX -01 has anyone successfully ran a linux distro as embedded instead of android

    @Teaker1s
    No Linux on CX-01 for now AFAIK. I had a look, but the kernel does not seem to be in a partition, but burnt directly into an address in the flash (somewhere in /dev/block/mtdblock0), maybe I’ll try a different approach, but I’m afraid to brick my device.

    I’ll see what I can do. When I first started, I did not expect to get hardware basically every week, which is what is happening right now, and it’s difficult to keep up.
