My initial impressions from this board were an excellent candidate for beginner to get into embedded linux/Android ocean since it is open source. But me being at intermediate level found it difficult using the OS images available from e14. The board design is excellent. Almost all features of iMX6 solo are available to be explored. Board doesn't heat after hours of usage. To begin with android that came installed by default, the performance is pretty good. No lag can be seen while extensively using user interface and while playing 1080p video too. But a crash was encountered while booting. This can be seen in the boot log attached. When connected to PC after boot-up using the USB cable provided, a device was recognized and after installation of driver, adb was up and running. I...

---- REVIEW ---- So, Let me Start my review of this product. Single Board Computers are quickly catching up the market and probably in near future Hackers and Developers will be carrying a Hackable Tablet having Arduino Built in it . Even more fascinating up-coming technology is the Internet of Things (IoT). The RIoT Board or Revolutionizing the Internet Of things Fits Perfectly into the domain. First of all, I want to thank Element14 and the RoadTest Program for selecting me for this Exciting RoadTest. As Exciting as the board is I really had fun playing with it. This Board is currently Not for Hobbiest's like Raspberry Pi but with the Awesome Support and Community It will Soon Be. This Board can be closely compared to Beagle Bone Black with more RAM and eMMC, further it has more...

First thanks for Element14 offering me this opportunity of RoadTest. The RIoTBoard reached me several days after my application was selected, which is quite fast for a over-sea shipping. My proposal was to run QT-based TauLabs GCS on RIoTBoard. The software part of the project involves installing Linux and compile GCS from source. Install and Config Debian While Tau Labs has released an official release for Android(https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.taulabs.androidgcs) which would run on RIoTBoard. I decided to compile and run the GCS software on Debian, as it would be no difference from using any Android tablet if I use the built-in Android on RIoTBoard. It is very easy to write the Debian image compiled by selsinork to a micro SD card with tools like dd(1)....
