Yes, those all work.

I haven't succesfully tested WLAN. It requires firmware as well as an
additional configuration file alongside the firmware. I've tried using
the files from https://github.com/xypron/wandboard-bcm4329

SATA is working for me running the 3.16 kernel from jessie on a wheezy
system, so I *suspect* it will work fine on a purely jessie system, but
haven't actually tested it.

Works. console=ttymxc0,115200

I don't believe HDMI audio has kernel support yet. Analog may require
firmware not present in Debian; I have yet to get it to work. S/PDIF
also may require additional firmware; I don't have S/PDIF hardware to


Unconfirmed. Haven't tried much.

> - Bluetooth

Haven't gotten it to work. I believe it requires the same firmware as
WLAN, and possibly additional configuration.

live well,
