Hi,

Several images were uploaded last year and have not been updated since, so I am looking for an up to date and reliable SD card image to install on my new A20, without too many 'bugs', which is fairly easy to install and set up.

It should have good wi-fi connectivity and work 'out of the box' with the Logitech K400 keyboard, and preferably have Chrome as a default web browser.

I am quite happy copying image files to an SD card and have used Linux a bit on a Raspberry Pi... and on a laptop, although I would still consider myself to be a relatively inexperienced user!

Any recommendations please?  :)

Just to confirm, I want to run it directly from the card, and not install to NAND.

Thanks... I take it that these are ones you have installed and used personally, without any major problems, rather than just some examples of what is available?

Unfortunately my broadband speed here is very slow, so each image takes a long time to download.

Based on what I have read, my preference at the moment is for Qbee-x for A20, which looks as if it might be a good one to start on!
