To be honest I don’t know. I have to do some research on the differences between the white and black versions, most importantly, whether the pin layouts are the same. If anyone know the answers, please feel free to speak up. Thanks.
You are correct, as port matter, there are the same (schematics compared).
here might only be matter of software. i have managed to migrate my original BeagleBone to an Ubuntu image, so probably ubuntu matter will not be an issue.
Regarding electrical spces do you think, it might be some trouble?
i have a BeableBone, so i might do some test (once my OS arrives), i just want to be sure not to fry my BB.
The 5V power circuitry on OSBo has a PTC fuse followed by a 5.6V zener diode, which function as over-current and over-voltage protection. So it should be fine. The only thing I am worried about is if the pins are arranged differently on the two versions, you may end up shorting some pins to ground, which could damage those pins on the Beagle.
