Simple. Light. Optimized. Fast. Secure. Supported. Open.
Armbian is a base operating system platform for single board computers that other projects can trust to build upon.
- Lightweight Debian or Ubuntu based linux distribution specialized for ARM development boards,
- Each system is compiled, assembled and optimized by Armbian Build Tools,
- It has a vibrant support community.
To be able to boot clean Armbian mainline based u-boot / kernel experiences, you need to remove incompatible Petitboot loader that is shipped with the board. From the Petitboot, go for “Exit to shell” and these commands to remove the Petitboot:
Code: Select all
# flash_eraseall /dev/mtd0 # flash_eraseall /dev/mtd1 # flash_eraseall /dev/mtd2 # flash_eraseall /dev/mtd3
Armbian Linux uses mainline based boot loader and can come in any Ubuntu or Debian minimal, server or desktop variant.
