Intel edison has so much potential and so many projects can be done with it except for the following flaws.
There is a serious USB host bug where say if I attach a usb web it keeps appearing and disappearing on subsequent reboot (doesnt appear in /dev/video0 at times). Intel acknowledged its a bug failed to solve it.
It quite hard to solder those Hirose 70 receptacle for projects that doesn't require a custom board....the sparkfun blocks are terribly expensive (for people only needing say USB)
The SD Card connectivity documentation is so obscure that we tried so many level shifters, none of them get recognized i(ubilinux)
The kernel is so old, the engineers dont bother updating it....
I wish intel does something really quickly about it, I hate to say with so much money spending and resources at hand, it can managed way better.
Thank you for your feedback, we will pass this information to the appropriate team so they can decide which actions to take on this.
I'm with you mosfet!
If our software guys were willing to work with ARM I'd be burning all my Edisons.
I see PabloM is as useless as ever. He must have that reply permanently in his clipboard.
Just wanted to let you know that we use the TXS0108 level shifter for the SD Card and it works for us.
