    Unable to get anything working...


      So I got my RiotBoard.  Plugged in keyboard mouse, hdmi, ethernet, and power.


      The andriod OS starts up but is mostly off the screen so it is unusable.  I can't get past the splash screen.  :-(


      UPDATE:  Got past the splash screen on andriod using this from the user manual


      Display with HDMI Only (Default mode)

      Execute the following instructions in u-boot mode to configure for HDMI display mode;

        MX6Solo RIOT U-Boot > setenv bootargs console=ttymxc1,115200

      init=/init nosmp video=mxcfb0:dev=hdmi,720x480M@60,bpp=32

      video=mxcfb1:off fbmem=10M vmalloc=400M

      androidboot.console=ttymxc1 androidboot.hardware=freescale

        MX6Solo RIOT U-Boot > saveenv


      For linux...


      I downloaded fsl-image-fb-riotboard.sdcard from dropbox (link is now gone) put it on a micro SD card.  Set the boot switch per the uSD settings (below).


                      D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7 D8

      Serial Download  0  1  x  x  x  x  x  x

      eMMC             1  0  1  1  0  1  1  1


      I get this in the debug terminal

      Where can I get a linux img for an SD that works?  Like ANY image that boots.  Most of the links on the element14 or riotboard.org are dead.  How do you adjust the screen size on andriod? The whole thing is very frustrating.
