Repurposing a Vero4k with a Linux Distro

I’ve had my Vero 4k on the sidelines for quite some time and was thinking on repurposing it with a desktop linux distro. I’m aware of few arm64 distros but not how compatible they are with this specific SOC. Any thoughts?

Has anyone had any luck installing a debian, manjaro or something else?

Thanks!

edit: typos

Maybe start with OSMC, remove/disable mediacenter and read this:

Vero 4K is S905X
4K+ is S905D

There are compatible distributions and the easiest one to install may be Armbian.

However we can’t provide support for this. If you’re happy with Debian, install latest OSMC and disable Kodi as @grahamh suggested.

Cheers

Sam
