Manjaro ARM Preview2 for Khadas Vim 3!
The Manjaro ARM project is proud to announce the second test release for the Khadas Vim 3!
These images also work when flashed to a USB drive/stick!
The VIM3 SBC is the latest addition to our popular Khadas VIM series. It is equipped with the powerful Amlogic A311D SoC, based on the big-little CPU architecture: x4 Cortex A73 performance-cores clocked at 2.2Ghz, and x2 Cortex A53 efficiency-cores clocked at 1.8Ghz, are merged into a hexa-core configuration, and fabricated with a 12nm process to maximise performance, thermal and electrical efficiency.
VIM3 is designed with the same form-factor as our popular VIM2 and VIM1. It is the size of a credit-card, and fits perfectly inside our DIY Case. Although diminutive, VIM3 is competitively-priced and fully-featured; everything you need is already built-in. The Pro-model comes with onboard 4GB LPDDR4/4X RAM, 32GB of EMMC storage and 2T2R 802.11ac Wi-Fi with Bluetooth 5.0.
How to install:
Download the image/zip file from the download location. Verify that the download completed successfully.
After that, install Etcher (
sudo pacman -S etcher if on Manjaro) and burn it to an SD card or USB drive (8 GB or larger).
The Vim 3 should recognize the SD card/USB drive as a bootable device and boot from it.
On the first boot, it will display an OEM type install. After you have made your choices it will reboot into your newly setup system.
