    Now is when everyone here in an outpouring of support for the bravegearted devs Liao and Feng should thank them profusely through emails, donations, purchases and whatever other means possible. Take my word for it that they had to fight a very resistant management to get this product and the accompanying tools to our community.

    Not only did they create the thing, they fought hard to keep from Being forced to release it as anything less than it should have been.

    Here are their email addresses, but if you want to be authentic Chinese style grab the app QQ international and use the number part to add them to your list of friends and send a thank you IM.

    327512710@qq.com (Liao)
    403115614@qq.com (Feng)

    Seriously take the ten minutes or five minutes or whatever amount of time it may take these guys worked very hard to get firefly flying.

          Firefly

          Firefly is an incredibly hot little board that is shaking things up a little by being 100% open. Folks, the reason we haven't seen the ultimate TV box, etc yet is that Open is a relatively new concept here. They have their own way of doing open hardware, but it's not really compatible with ours (and this is why you see sales of SDK's, kernel drivers, etc...)

          Firefly is the result of a few people simply sticking to their guns and producing a dev board that can actually be used in any way the user wants (eg... for development). Over the past six months open HW and open SW have really taken off here, and I imagine that there is no stopping it now. The pearl river delta is a hell of a place to be in 2014, let me tell you.

          If you're enjoying the tools provided by the Firefly devs, please make sure that you contact them to thank them. They are not yet fully aware how much their product changes the environment for us, or how many derivative uses it enables.

          In total, Firefly is just what every single 3288 TV box should have been, but couldn't be: A reprogrammable general purpose computer with a snappy CPU/GPU for under $150 (I cannot confirm the pricing, but if I had to guess....)

            Certainly firefly seems nice, but I personally will wait for Radxa Rock 2.

              Theyre my friends. You should buy from them..... . (In all seriousness though just go with what you think is best..... Either way you'll be supporting some awesome HW devs ☺.)

                  I am very interested in this board. Dual boot OS is amazing.

                  They don't have a store front so I am not sure how to buy one. I have sent them an email and hope to hear back from soon. I hope they accept single orders.

                      Great thanks for your advice. How about any sound issue and if you want to go back the original TV box firmware, can you just reflash the stock firmware?

                        How is the GPU hardware acceleration in Ubuntu compared to the RK3188?

                          I do not yet have a board and cannot yet tell you where to get one. The second I can do that, I will very happily do so.
