    According to cnx-soft some people got their hands on the kernel sources...given that and the popularity of RK3066 devices there migth a slight chance to get some Linux running on a RK3066 some day.

    What do you think?

    (1) Update: Ubuntu Linux for RK3066 devices (pre-Alpha 0.2 released)
    (2) Update: Ubuntu Linux for RK3066 devices (pre Alpha 0.3 released)
    Support for UG802 / MK808 / UG007 / iMito MX1 sticks​

    (3) Update: Anyone heard of Picuntu?
    (4) Picuntu RC release also see here

    Someone set up a whole web page / server - running on a stick: you find it here (currently working...)
    The site is about - guess what - Linux on a RK3066 TV mini stick device...

    Another example of of webpage running of and being about RK3066 stick...

    Picuntu Update
    Currently it seems that the development came to a halt - but it is promised to commence in May.

    Linux on RK3188 (Quadcore A9 @28nm)
    According to here there has been progress made to run Linux/Ubuntu on a RK3188 device...still early stages though.

    Source: cnx-soft slatedroid.com liliputing.com google plusetc

    One more step RK3066 becomes part of Mainline Linux Kernel..sort of
    Some very basic support has been admitted to the upcoming Linux Kernel 3.11 - still ground work though but good to see progress.

    Some benchmarks

    Progress is being made...for both Rk3066 and RK3188

    That's what I am saying...
    But if someone says that he is running it...it doesn't exactly mean a whole lot yet...
    Let see, if we find more reports on that....

    What do you mean by that? Do you have own experience with such a set up?

    No graphics acceleration whatsoever!?

    mhmhm... well, it seems that the steaming development of Linux for RK3066 took a Xmas break.
    Or does anyone have news on its status?
