Minor glitches fixed and few addons.
I’m now testing older Pi boards to assure full compatibility with previous cards. This beta is fast but too optimized and focused on RPiv3 only, probably you don’t care or you have just the latest Pi Foundation board but I’d like to be sure to have a working image for older Pi v1 and v2 (models B and A) as well. I’ll probably loose few firmware optimizations but at least I can still use these boards as well. Pi Zero is sitting here in front of my desktop but I have never used it with Moebius, I’ll report how it goes with it too.

From currently downloadable image I have changed few things previously used for debugging:

  • kernel and system boot messages are now displayed on tty1 instead of ttyAMA0 (serial line), I was previously using it to speed up internal testing (with a serial line always connected to the pi to see its boot)
  • Serial line S0 deleted (S0 Line is respawning too fast, disabling it for 5 minutes…  message)
  • Added the three fingers salute shortcut to enable Ctrl+Alt+Canc reboot from keyboard
  • Disabled screen blanking

You’ll see these in the next beta release, comments and suggestions are always welcomed.

Please keep in mind that current image is still a beta and it’s not so stable, as already mentioned it works with Pi3 boards only and minor changes are needed or you’ll see what reported above. Let me finish basic tests with older board and I’ll release a stable image real soon.
