Installation

Follow the Installation_guide, use sdcard method. Then insert microSD into TF-card slot and plug the power cable, pmOS should boot. If not, try once again (on cold boot SPL sometimes decides there is 4096 MiB of RAM and boot hangs).

To install to eMMC, flash ondev to SD or run pmbootstrap from present pmOS installation on SD.

Serial console

See linux-sunxi wiki page, connect your USB-UART adapter's RX to board's TX and vice versa.

OTG

As said in board's DTS,

/*
 * This board doesn't have a controllable VBUS even though it
 * does have an ID pin. Using it as anything but a USB host is
 * unsafe.
 */

So you can't connect it to a PC via microUSB to transfer data, it will only gain charge. But there is 5 standard USB ports that can be used to connect any devices.

Audio

Hardware codec isn't supported in Linux kernel yet, so audio jack output won't work. However, HDMI audio works.

Ethernet

Main blocker is described here. Until it's resolved, you'll have to pick that patch and build u-boot manually, than flash it manually over an existing pmOS installation, out of scope of this page.
