The filesystem layout looks similar to the Raspberry Pi except u-boot is used and things are a little more open source friendly.

This is a general ticket to keep track of a potential port. Please use additional tickets for anything beyond getting the boot loader code running.

SD Card Layout:

kallisti5@nyx fat :( $ sudo fdisk -l /dev/loop0

Disk /dev/loop0: 3657 MB, 3657433088 bytes, 7143424 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x00000000

      Device Boot      Start         End      Blocks   Id  System
/dev/loop0p1   *          63      144584       72261    c  W95 FAT32 (LBA)

Boot Partition:

kallisti5@nyx fat :) $ ls -lah

Example u-boot image:

Priority set to low for obvious reasons :)
