The HiKey Getting Started and software builds have been updated. The updated Getting Started can be found here: https://github.com/96boards/documentation/wiki/HiKeyGettingStarted. People who have received an early access board can reflash their boards with the latest builds by following the instructions in Section 4: Boot Recovery.
People who receive production boards can boot straight into Debian and then setup WiFi Internet access or follow the Getting Started guide to switch to Android.
In addition, the HiKey board is listed in a survey of sub-$200 single board computers that has been launched by Linux.com and LinuxGizmos.com. You can do the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2015SBCS and this should be available until Wednesday 3 June.
