SATA Connector and Wireless Dongles? are on the Back of Mixtile Board

You won’t find many details on Mixtile Hardare page, but there’s some recently updated documentation and software on Mixtile github account, with various repositories for documentation with a getting started guide, linux and u-boot source code, development tools, and BSPs for Android 4.4.2, Ubuntu Touch, and OpenWRT. What I failed to find however is a clear graphical description of the board and connectors.

Thanks to Embedded_Geek for the tip.

Does it really has support for Openwrt? I can only see the trunk of the official Openwrt and nothing about its support.

Don’t think so. I couldn’t find support for SATA in A31

[…] 所以,我可以告诉你们的是,这块板4月份发货几乎不太可能!话虽如此,不过它应该不会是“烟雾弹”,后期应该是能发布的。因为 Mixtile公司已经出现好几年了,我在 2014 年的时候也写过关于他们板子的文章。 […]
