        Now, it's very hard to keep dual boot Windows/Ubuntu on X5 Mini PC. Because there are different BIOS programs for Windows and Ubuntu, and it can't compatible at the moment.

        To some extent, Windows and Android share same BIOS, because of maintenances from Microsoft and Google. that's why we can do dual boot Windows/Android.

          Yes, let me attach. There are three pictures you could find details of GPIO and I2C PIN, they are circuit diagram(picture 1), PCB block diagram(picture 2) and interfaces diagram of the two(picture 3).

                The X5 has 1033 MHz RAM speed. This is bad, the z83ii had 1600mhz memory, in terms of performance the X5 is just a downgrade, it may have Android and a extra USB port inside hidden but the memory used just kills it

                  some users need dual boot, while some don't like this way. anyway, we will update an instruction about how to keep one boot soon. and thanks for your feedback.
