This is a request to make a public link to the Linux SDK source code. The reason why I am asking for this is as follows:

I requested an SDK link from the seller on aliexpress as is suggested in the Firefly wiki. I was given two links - one on google drive and another on baidu. I explored both links and I see that GoogleDrive link is out of date and contains 0.0.1a SDK while a baidu link contains 0.1.0a SDK. So the GoogleDrive SDK link is out of date. I tried to download the SDK from baidu and it refuses to give me the file and suggests to install a Baidu Network Drive application.

This is the thing that I already strongly dislike since I only install open source apps on my PC. However since I had no choice I made a VM and installed this Baidu application in it. Only to find out that I can't download the file anyway, it shows some dialog box in chinese and refuses to go on.

Please, update the SDK on Google drive or make an official public link to the SDK. Have mercy on your European customers.

that's weird, google drive already has v0.1.0a months ago, and it has update-bundle to v1.0.0c
Maybe you got a wrong link
I will send you the right link in PM, please don't leak it to someone else

Thank you so much Liuth! Yes your link contains the right SDK version 0.1.0a. I hereby officially promise not to leak this link

By the way, are you aware why this SDK is not in public domain? This looks strange to me. I personally am exploring capabilities of this board for the company I work with. And the fact that SDK is not officially available is OK for our company. We often work with companies that never open source their code and just give you the blobs. But for many Linux enthusiasts who just want to test the board on their own the fact that the SDK is not on officially open sourced will be a deal breaker, they will not want to buy the product and put effort in helping to develop it.

And by the way:

Am I supposed to build this on x86 host or I have to use and arm64 host machine to build SDK?

The chip vendor doesn't want to see SDK being spread everywhere
SDK is part of after-sales service, only for buyers
For building SDK,  X86 Ubuntu21.04 host is recommended

Thank you for help Liuth!  By the way. will the link that you gave always contain the most recent version of SDK? I mean can I rely just on this link to always be sure that I am up to date or I have to do it some other way?
