Yes I'm up and running with mine Pine64!
#1
I got my Pine64 2GB with WiFi and Bluetooth Thursday evening.

I was ready to start my first test. I was a bit anxious due to all the complains found in this forum, but I had made some preparations to avoid all to many issues.

My plan was to make a Media center based on Kodi and other Android apps.

I havd already (without problems) downloaded a Remix and a Android image to two different SD cards (Samsung 64GB EVO) using the PhoenixCard tool. I had no problems using this tool.

The first boot was with the Remix image, the Pine was connected to a small TV (1080p) and a OnePlus mobile phone charger. (it's not my intention to use this PSU for anything else than this first test) I had to adjust the image aspect at the TV to full, to see all the pixels from the pine.
The booting process completed without any problems and finally was the system up and running!
I did the same with the Android images, just to see which system I would prefer for the future.

I have invested some few $ into a dedicated power supply (5V 4A) this was the connected to the Eula bus pins (used two VCCIN pins and two GND pins and only 5cm long wires)
The next step was to connect my USB Harddisk, But I had some problems reading form it. The HD made some noise indicating it did not work correctly. I search for answers in this forum and found it. I needed a USB hub with external power, due the the maximum output load at the USB connectors.
I found a USB hub, connected it and was the able to see the HD in Android, but not in Remix. This was corrected by installing a USB driver from Google Play.

I have installed Kodi and some other apps from Google Play, without any problems. all works as it should. 

Yesterday did I test the installation connected to our 40" Living room Philips TV - Works perfect.

So I need to say, It has been a very easy startup process for me, everything works as expected and I'm VERY pleased for my Pine64!
