Do you have an ETA on the new image, or better yet, an ETA on a 'stable' release? I just re-flashed for the 6th time playing with both the Pi4 and SM-OS and would like some stability ; )
Yes it works just fine, but I would want the new drivers, I was referring to you comment above saying the next RPi beta update requires a reflash...
