Trying to get Quartz model A working
Hey there,
I hope you guys can help me get started on this one.

At the moment did the following and got stuck:

- Quartz model A board, with power and HDMI connected to external monitor
- Downloaded & Installed Balena Etcher in my Ubuntu
- Downloaded latest armbian image (Notice Armbian download link is broken on the Pine website)

Installed this on the EMMC card. Is there any switch to tell the board that needs to boot from the emmc or is automatic?

When I turn on the board, guess it's the Power button, do not get (so far anything) using HDMI.
Question: It would be really great to make a "getting started" section where is a bit more explained how to get started with this.

I know is only for developers, but developers don't necessarily need to be Rocket scientists to install Linux in a board Idea

Tried with Manjaro release:

and it seems HDMI works out of the box. Now next step is to connect a keyboard and try it out!

Maybe I just choosed the Armbian wrong distribution from the Archive? Or just one where the HDMI drivers are still not working.

One more recommendation: Can anyone tell me if there is a Linux distribution that I can install where it has already the Eink drivers?
Would like to connect an epaper and try it out.
Thanks a lot for your feedback.
