Release Date: February 2020, new CPU

  1. Is February 2020 a final release date?

  2. Will the store be updated to reflect the new CPU?

Interested in pre-ordering but would first like to know the date I can expect to receive it, and have an invoice with the new hardware.

We are going with that date as the target.

I can give you the current status:

  • we are able to flash bootloader and main system, it boots and works as expected
  • we will use exactly the same “rootfs” as we have for the previous imx8-based units, since they are binary compatible. that means the “only” work that we need to do is tweak the bootloader and make all kernel components work
  • plugin store and other cloud stuff needs no changes, our target is to use the same OS image for both duo x units (download size will increase by a few Mb, that’s it)

Interesting. So the DUOs use an NXP iMX8 SoM?

The current Duo X’es do.

Will this be available for regular, non X, Duos too?


Same question here. As the owner of a first-gen Kickstarter model Mod Duo, will there be a CPU upgrade for this device?
