1. FreedomBox Danube Edition
FreedomBox Danube Edition is a custom casing around Cubietruck and an SSD-hard drive.
2. Cubietruck / Cubieboard3
Cubietruck (Cubieboard3) is a single board computer with very good performance compared to many other boards. FreedomBox images are built for this device. To use this board as FreedomBox, a separate USB WiFi device that does not require non-free firmware is recommended.
Recommendation: If you are using a board that uses SD cards, when you flash the FreedomBox image onto your SD card, we recommend that you use an SD card with at least 8GB of storage space.
FreedomBox SD card images are provided for this hardware. These SD card images are meant for use with the on-board SD card slot and do not work when used with a separate SD card reader connected via USB.
4. Build Image
FreedomBox images for this hardware can be built using Freedom Maker.
