Re: arm64 support?

Well, that's why I stick with Pis, because they're easy and fast
enough.  You could look into debootstrap
https://wiki.debian.org/Debootstrap if you feel like an adventure.  I
did it once on a phone.  Or maybe you should use cdebootstrap

Drivers for specific hardware will probably be an issue with the
Rockchips unless they're now available from Debian.  Maybe you can add
a Rockchip repository to your /etc/apt/sources.list or enter it as
part of the installation process.

I think you just choose arm64 by using the --arch=ARCH option when you
start debootstrap.

I don't know of a ready to go image, sorry.
