Nothing fancy, just TinkerOS 2.04 pre-installed with the following apps:

Kodi - media center (HW accelerated)
LibreOffice - office apps
Pinta - lightweight paint program
VLC - media player
VNC server

Sonic Pi - Music programming language
Minetest - minecraft-like game
Claws mail
Guvcview - webcam viewer
Geany - programmers editor

Netflix and hulu work in Chromium (thanks to https://tinkerboarding.co.uk/forum/thread-329.html)

Adobe Flash working in Chromium and firefox

Printer support added via CUPS and control-panel.
Airprint and google cloud print setup.

(tinker-config is now Asus's updated version)

Pi Camera utilities installed in  /home/tinkercam folder ( https://tinkerboarding.co.uk/forum/thread-724.html )

samba installed with home directory shared : //tinkerboard/home

tinkerOSplus-2.04.img.zip [1.8GB] - needs an 8GB card


Might help some get started quicker.
Hi Mikerr,
thank you very much for this great work. Seems all works fine with one exception:
when I change the keyboard layout in tinker-config to German, the correct keyboard is shown, but the new setting is not saved.
So I could not find a way to make German keyboard layout usable.
Do you have an idea what could help?
Regards
Karl

Good afternoon,
today I tried Mikerr's TinkerOS 2.04 with Amazon's Prime Video and found
the video-quality (very) poor.
Regardless, what I choose in Amazon's Video-quality settings
(good, better or best), the video-quality is always the same and (very) poor.

I compared it with the streaming quality in Windows 7, Linux MX-17 and Ubuntu.
There you can see a change in the video-quality depending on what you choose
in Amazon's streaming options.

What do I wrong?
Best regards
Karl

Mikerr,
Thanks for your fine tinkerosplus. It probably saved me a lot of work.
I turned the tinkerboard into a 2160 (4k) mediaplayer.
Works fine with the build-in player.
I cannot get Kodi to do 2160. I get sound only and no video.
But this is no showstopper.
I still have one question: Can I get the os to boot from a USB HD?
This YouTube ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLlMWfDfpzw ) refers to a extlinux.conf with a root= line.
That does not exist in your tinkerosplus.
Can you help me?
