I am happy to announce that I was able to boot Tizen:Common from microSD 
card on Firefly-RK3288 development board with Linux kernel 3.10, Wayland 
and framebuffer support.

SoC that features Cortex-A17 quad core CPU @ 1.8GHz and Mali-T764 GPU.

the following commands to copy the image on micro SD card using a
