@MichaIng
what do you think. Would it make sense to use the Armbian image instead of Meveric?

Hmm. I think, as long as the armbian image has the issues with the soft boot it's not the best idea. Maybe the 4.9 kernel works better but it's lagacy u-boot etc.

I guess we would need to wait for a stable base image.

I don't believe it's booting. Tried a couple SD cards.

Updated image with new kernel package and identified two reasons why the old did not boot:
1. The installed `u-boot` package is only a placeholder for what will be released for C4 explicitly at a later date and must not be flashed.
2. I gzipped the kernel manually as this was skipped when booting on VM. However I now saw that the C4 kernel comes already in gzipped version and must only be copied.

Hence the new image should finally boot.
