ahhh crap, just realized I could probably take the p-boot source that Megous put together as a bootloader gui for the #pinephone and jettison a fair bit of the code and slot in #retroforth instead and have a non-functional yet nicely bootstrapped forth-based smartphone to flesh out... if it wasn't trying to run a full operating system this allwinner a64 hardware could scream as a purpose-built "embedded" device...
@djsundog since I upgraded my PinePhone I have a spare CPU board sitting here
it says "imma known good component. unrealised computing potential in a little pink antistatic bag"
