I found this older thread and wanted to check if there have been any
updates on this that I might have missed?

I gave the images from buster a try and the installation process ran
fine on LCD until the network interface wasn't found.

Apparently the WIFI is a RTL8723cs device and support landed in 5.9,
coincidentally the kernel in bullseye, so I gave its SD card images a
try. However, they launch to a black screen, so I assume that this still
goes out to serial?

Assuming that I figure out how to connect the serial (apparently through
the headphone jack), should installation over serial be routine, or are
there also still gotchas?
