I’ve assembled a network installer image to install Debian 7.0 “Wheezy” on the GK802 “Android TV” Mini PC. This is intended for people who want to run the GK802 headless or semi-headless, for server or robotics applications.

Problem: You have a computer running Debian 7 wheezy (also Debian 8 jessie) with an encrypted root filesystem. At startup you’d like to be able to unlock the disk over ssh, maybe because it runs headless.
This post is about running Debian GNU/Linux on the Mesada/Flexiview FV-1 “AndroidTV” unit. This post has been a bit delayed, I got very sidetracked with other things this month!
By following these steps, you should be able to use the FV-1 a bit like a normal desktop Linux computer. However, it’s still a long way from my dream goal of running XBMC for Linux.
