[Video] MinnowBoard MAX Unboxing and Booting of Tizen:Common

MinnowBoard MAX is an excellent open source embedded hardware platform based on Intel Atom E38xx 64-Bit Bay Trail System on Chips (SoC), which is quite versatile to our Tizen developer community. Our friend Leon Anavi got a MinnowBoard MAX board during the recent Tizen Developer Summit in Shanghai earlier this year and the first thing he did was port Tizen over to it !!!!
Leon: I have the model with single-core Atom CPU and 1GB RAM. Following the tutorial for installation of Tizen:Common I have created a bootable microSD card to show you the board in action. The installer for Tizen IVI is also compatible with MinnowBoard MAX and this Tizen profile can be easily booted on the board too. The main advantages of the MinnowBoard MAX compared to the other ARM boards on which I have tried out Tizen is the support of mainline Linux kernel and the open source graphics drivers for hardware acceleration.
