- Last but not least, Neil Armstrong recently posted a video of a Mail T820 running kmscube.
All-in-all, seems like there’s some light at the end of the tunnel for these SoC’s, along with linux mainline and Kodi support (fingers crossed).
And a massive thank you to all people working on this! (CoreELEC, LibreELEC, Alyssa, Lyude, Neil, Lima team, etc.)!
