    I had an original MK808 laying around and decided to turn it into an inexpensive Linux server.

    First of all I flashed the Finless 1.7c ROM because it has the option to reboot my MK808 to recovery and I need that to install Linux.

    Next step is writing PicUntu (Linux) to a MicroSD card. For this purpose I use Win32 DiskImager because my PC says Windows 8 inside (and yes I know it's crappy).
    I downloaded PicUntu-linuxroot-0.9-RC2.2.img.gz image file and wrote it to the MicroSD card. That took a while as it is a big chunk of about 2.6GB but it's got all that I want.:p

    This was no succes so I decided to continue writing to the MicroSD using Linux (Ubuntu).
    After some unsuccesfull attempts to format the MicroSD to ext4, I ended up with a nice retro terminalprompt at the bootup.
    Ok so I will continue my adventure when I reinstalled Ubuntu.

    To be continued...
