Remember those Android Things kits that were all the rage a few years ago? Android Things might be gone but the kit itself was a very capable piece of hardware! With the raspberry pi shortages it might be useful to figure out how to install Linux on them. I only have a few kits (some people returned them if you can believe it!) but will be hacking on them from 7pm to 10pm.
The tooling around working with the kits is . . . well, older, so maybe the issue I was having was that I had an M1 Mac. And Intel Mac or even a Windows machine might be the key to getting these things unlocked.
