Thanks, I took lots of pictures too. I'll have to upload them sometime. Too
busy. The entire thing is in pieces on my desk and I haven't had the time
to put it all together. (Basically an $80 pile of parts).

I was able to get it to boot just fine without scripts, unfortunately, I
put too much flex in the HDMI cable connector (taking it apart), and
haven't had a chance to make a new one, and thusly, only had about 15
minutes of testing before breaking it..  Although when the EOMA68 was
install with Android, the screen would display briefly, then shut off. I
had not actually read any of the hardware notes for the rPI, I just saw it
and bought it with the intent to hack it.
