This is good news! After reading the info in the above link, it
appears that flashing the Ben can turn out to be a bit of an ordeal.
I have done it once with the latest image from Qi-Hardware. It went
well. However, all of my custom images are copied to a micro SD card
and I prefer to use them for experimenting:) I keep a rather standard
O/S on the NAND as a backup. An 8GB card is about $20 US and has
plenty of room--I currently have four of them for this purpose.
Would it be possible to supply the files/methods needed to setup this
port of Debian to boot from the micro SD card?
Also glad to see that 500 Nanonotes are already in the hands of end
users--hope the next 500 goes out even faster:)
