Does anyone have Spectre660's Debian 8 installer ramdisk that they could share?

Install a full Debian 8 Mate with my installer ramdisk below.
https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BxoZd ... Fo4clZzUmc
Copy the ramdisk to a Fat32 formatted thumb drive with your kernel of choice and cyrus_520.dtb
boot the installer with the uboot options below and install Debian 8 .
setenv bootargs root=/dev/ramdisk mem=3500M radeon.pcie_gen2=1
fatload usb 0:1 1000000 uImage-cyrus
fatload usb 0:1 1c00000 cyrus_5020.dtb
fatload usb 0:1 2000000 uRamdisk_Debian_8-net
bootm 1000000 2000000 1c00000
After the installation clone the partition from Ubuntu Mate using gparted . You could also use dd from the newly installed Debian 8 .
Boot from the newly installed or cloned Debian 8 partition then upgrade .
You can skip the cloning if you don't also want to keep a Debian 8 installation .
after cloning the partition and booting from it change the /etc/apt/sources.list to
deb http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
deb-src http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ unstable main contrib non-free
upgrade to Debian 9/sid with:
apt-get -u dist-upgrade
PS: I have also done a Gentoo installer image that boots but I have not tried to do an installation yet.
if your are interested in trying it just ask.
