I read the readme.txt file for the cfimager. I noticed no MX6Q install information

for the image or uboot. 

 
So, I think you said you were in the process off writing up that document or uboot
and image (Ubuntu 12.04) so I will wait for your instructions.
 
Thanks for everyones efforts on all the boards. I know a lot of hard work went into
all the products and testing. I am retired sr. programmer/engineer for many years
I know first hand.
 
Note: I noticed with my external power supply exceeds 1.1xx Amps on booting the
         Acadia board with USB keyboard and Mouse plus RJ45 connected to router,
         and HDMI (your adapter) to VGA converter connected. I am using a Lab uP
Power Supply which has voltage and current regulation at 5v @ 3A.

Thank you very, very much. It's late night here now. So, I will work on this tomorrow. I have the .zip file loaded on my laptop already. So, I will follow the steps tomorrow and let you know the results. Again thank you for all the fine work you do and your team.

I followed the tutorial. I tried several times. No luck at all. I could not image and make either a Bootable eMMC or SD1 or SD2. The tool from what I see tells you it was sucessful, but it is not.

Powered by 5v 3A regulated lab bench power supply. The OTG USB is connected to my laptop to use the image tool you supplied. I followed the tutorial step by step. I did this a couple of times to make sure. Nothing changed and it looked like it programmed as to the messages as the processing tasks were performed. Very puzzling to me.

Yes, I used two other HDMI to VGA adapters I have from other vendors.

Also I used the one from Cutedigi or LinkSprite.
 
Non of them displayed anything during the boot process.
 
It seemed to me strange that /dev/tty1 was in the log files????
 
I have that microSD card in a reader attached to this Linux system. This system which I have
been using as my recliner computer is a pcDuino3S which I have issues making a microSD bootable
system. Another day we can maybe find the problem with it. Acadia comes first.
 
Acadia first to have it bootable from a microSD card then maybe we can get my 128GB SSD to work.
 
Sorry about all the non-related Acadia stuff here. All other pcDuino's working just fine.

YES, WOW what a computer!

I found "board-config.sh"
I only need a way to pull in the boards about 96% on TV-HDMI.
I set the resolution in the above file.
 
I could not set resolution or board % in the above file running it.
It would not accept my entries.
Must be ding something wrong again.
