Do you have any experience in installing a standard 4.x kernel with Archlinux? They don’t have an up-to-date linux-imx-cubox kernel, so I tried the linux-armv7 one and I failed.
I don’t have any direct experience with Archlinux, and their imx/cubox kernel binaries are a bit old, now.. If you are able, you should be able to compile your own kernel, and there is info on this in previous articles..
