I've built Netboot installers for ODROID-N2, Netboot installer is a tiny Linux system intended to install an OS while downloading all packages through a network. Therefore, your ODROID-N2must be able to connect to a public network. The installation time would depend on the network performance but you would be able to customize and update OS while installing.
The current installer will install Linux v4.9 with U-boot v2015.01, they are all official kernel and U-boot from Hardkernel but kernel configuration could be slightly different. The Linux kernel source to build the package is in my github, https://github.com/tobetter/linux/commi ... idn2-4.9.y.
- Debian 9 (Stretch) - EOL
