    I also have the same issue as you, but it's just the Linux environment. You'll get nothing out of it for the moment, except a moving cursor...

    The biggest problem is not having proper disk IO so everything must reside in a RAM disk. Until this is solved it's nothing but a toy.

    tbh thats not really a problem for me if the GUI wont work but would it possible to select the input mode, this would help me alot

    This should be fixed as soon as possible, thats true but wont it be always a toy? I mean the hardware is awful at todays standards.

    Why would you want to have the input mode if we can't do anything?

    This is part of the loader, which is out of my hands. IIRC that's part of arm9linuxfirm, which i'm not touching. Also, the Wi-Fi will come after I get the proper dev tools on the system so that a driver can be made.
    Yeah, this is literally what i'm trying to compile now.

    My current roadblock is the toolchain doing weird things and not wanting to work at all, although it gets further into the process sometimes. It's almost moody sometimes, but it always fails because every version of one executable in the toolchain @xerpi pointed to (or in a toolchain that I build myself) doesn't support a single flag ("-quiet"), so not even the "known-good" @xerpi source code works.

    Try installing/building a arm-linux-gnueabihf toolchain.

    HOLD THE FUCK ON, WHAT DO YOU MEAN

    look at my write speed

    IMG_20181208_000201.

    1.92 MiB/s

    HOLY FUCK das fast

    I upgraded from a Class 3 SD card to a Class 10 card, but that was mainly due to the size increase more than anything (16 → 128GB) so it'd have to be higher. Anyways, this is a shock, as it's clearly not locked to 1.1MiB/s at the hardware level like I thought. With a fast enough card, swap would absolutely be possible!
