Raspberry Pi Mer Hardware Adaptation

I've made some packages for the RaspberryPi to adapt the board to Mer.

Using the information released by the foundation at I've built 3 packages which consist of a kernel package, bootloader and mkimage tool to convert the kernel into a format readable by the bootloader. Packages can be found at

I've also created a Mer kickstart file which creates an image which can be easily written to sdcard and boots to X+qmlviewer within 20 seconds of powerup.  The kickstart and image can be found at

An ideal base for very low cost Qt/QML based products.  eg, Interactive bus stop, travel information display, store customer service etc

Check back for more details of how you can use the Mer PDK, for development.
