Should that not be the same driver?
The GPU and in fact almost the whole SoC is the same, only the display control for the LCD is different and I don't think that matters for this case?

You may be correct, but if so, why are distros separated by original pinebook and pinebook 1080 on the pine installer tool and elsewhere? I can attest that some of these do not install/function correctly when installed on first gen pinebooks.  They do work (mostly) when connected to an external monitor.
