Hello, thank you for the post. I copied the image to SD-card and it seems to load well (LEDs are on/blinking) but, as soon as I don’t have a display, I can’t setup wi-fi. Can you give any advice, please ?

I’m very interested. besides a suitable adapter, what sort of configuration is required to get a 4 Lane MIPI LCD working like this?

I’m specifically thinking of using a LS055R1SX04
