It appears that firmware, u-boot and kernel have all started properly. I
am not sure if output to HDMI after kernel starts is really working. You
should really only expect the machine to show up on the network and
FreedomBox interface to be available.

Also due to a known recent firewalld bug, you will need to restart the
board after about 10m and expect the board to be available on the
network only during the second run.
