I've flashed both these images today using the linux version of the flash tool:
$ md5sum Gemini*zip
7efd5aa0040afe3e7ba82415c83fa477 Gemini_Android_1_1_0.zip
59ff929b50968cad98e5285f4ecbacc7 Gemini_Debian_TP.zip

Though I don't think there's any need to flash the Android version as I think the Debian image has both and after flashing you can boot into either.

I'm sshd in from my laptop over the usb port. The system came up with IP address 10.15.19.82 on my device. So I gave my laptop .100, started sshd and am logged in. It's a bit too fiddly running an xterm as I'm not sure how the keyboard is supposed to be configured, so am missing all sorts of characters.

Interestingly the binaries i pull off the site have different hashes

i did note a trustzone binary in there which if we are lucky means the hardware visualization stuff is in there, poking around the arm github pages points to some alternate implementations but it will all depend on if it needs to be signed. with any luck planetcom has he keys to the kingdom and not mediatek

It's built from source (mtee) in MediaTek AOSP tree, so likely we can modify it or run custom software.

What is it you're looking for with trustzone exactly? I only see the source of the CAs available, but don't understand what you wish to achieve.

Password is "gemini", same as login (you can change that later with passwd).

Hmm didn't see that, I looked all over the instructions. Had a quick try, seems pretty smooth so far 😀

Was joking. We await documentation. I believe I read that Mike Halsey is writing it. For the Linux side, we are likely on our own, but there are already enough really talented and skilled people involved that I do not forsee much of a problem.

ROFL!

ok, for the record, I downloaded the img using a Mac after having errors unzipping it using Windows and Linux. Early days, I couldn't find bluetooth or get an external monitor to register (I'm not that experienced with LXQT tbf), look forward to later releases,

Thanks just got it loaded and tried GEMINI as the password and it didn't work. The tried gemini and it worked but now the screen is black ok after 40 seconds it booted to Welcome to LXQt.

Has anyone had luck with setting up the WiFi?

I am wondering if anyone knows of an emulator that supports the Mediatek SoC such that it would be possible for those of us who have not yet gotten our gadgets yet at least to be able to run the tech preview in a VM. It seems that this might be useful, even if only to try out the apps Adam Boardman is working on. The documentation foe qemu does not list anything I recognize as an X25 or X27, but I am not well versed in ARM nomenclature, and documentation does not always keep up with code.

Does anyone here know? If nothing else, it might give us something to do while awaiting our Gemini.
