I am trying to make this for both headless & normal operation. So the external SD card must have two partitions (the first fat32, the second: ext2). This is needed if we want to boot from stock OS and avoid nickel trying to reformat our external sdcard.

When I have the rootfs finished I will post some instructions here. You should check if everything worked fine for you. In that case you can flash the rootfs to the internal SD card or modify uboot environment to point to the external SD without pressing a button.

Give me a few days
Thats very encouraging Pazos, though Im hitting the limits of my current understanding, i havent got a handle on kernels and the making of. I may need to do some homework .
All I can contibute at this stage is good luck and hopefully this will breath new life into some broken screen devices.
