The CubieBoard2 is a small Allwinner A20 based device. It has a very competitive price point and is therefore similar to the Raspberry Pi, however a lot more powerfull. It's almost identical to the original Cubieboard except for the SoC.

Installing the openSUSE Tumbleweed image
- Download the image you want (Leap is stable, Tumbleweed is rolling) from here:
JeOS image E20 image XFCE image LXQT image X11 image
- As root extract the image onto your SD card (replace sdX with the device name of your SD card).
WARNING: all previous data on the SD card will be lost. Check first if the device you have selected is really your SD card!
xzcat [image].raw.xz | dd bs=4M of=/dev/sdX iflag=fullblock oflag=direct; sync
- Insert the SD card with the openSUSE image into your board.
- Connect the board to your PC via serial port (optional, but helpful for debugging; USB-TTL serial cable needed).
- Connect the board to your monitor (via DVI/HDMI, optional).
- Power on the board.
- Ethernet is configured to request an IP via DHCP, check your DHCP server for the board IP if used.
- Have a lot of fun...
Alternatively can download Etcher, an open source tool to flash your image graphically.
