Having spent many days figuring out (or banging my head) how to get a working kernel built from sources (non Android). I finally managed to get a kernel to boot .  It's no way complete but hey it's a start, for those interested dmesg output is here.  You will see references to chromium OS because it based on that source tree but don't expect chromium OS to appear soon. My test rootfs was the tizen supplied image in post in another thread.

Any chance the firefly team can request the MALI r5p0 userspace binaries from Rockchip (or whatever they can provide) ? I could then starting looking at GPU support.

A bit more progress .. ethernet working, cpu frequency scaling, serial console login and booting Ubuntu 14.04 (see output) . Next challenge is to see if we can get anywhere with gpu/vpu.

Re: 3.14 Kernel

Some progress with GPU see here . However lots of things are broken which partly might explain why the performance is low.
