I'm in the same boat, without usable linux image with wifi, the OrangePI Lite 2 is unusable for me. I can blame myself that I bought it without an linux image available. I was too optimistic, thought it won't take long for a linux image to appear.

Orange pi is perhaps also waiting for allwinner to release some stuff. It would be fair/nice when orange pi at least would make an estimate when we could expect an linux image and also put this on their product page. Until now there is only silence from them regarding this issue (but it was Chinese New Year....).

If it takes to long I will switch to a RK3328 board (no wifi ) when they release a good linux image before orange pi for the lite 2.

The hardware is really nice with a good feature set and price. As always, totally new hardware takes a long time until it works good on linux .

sunxi has all tools and kernel published in github, but only advanced users can boot this stuff in this way.
Armbian has no documentation how to add sources and patches step by step

I am the last person to protect Xunlong/Orange PI, but in this case I have to stand by their side:
The H6 are new products and beside from claiming selling open source hardware they do not promise any linux disro. This development is dependent on great people who invest a vast amount of time to make these work.

In the case of new products it will take time until linux distros are available. This was like with the H5 in the beginning and will be for a while for the H6 too. After all these are development boards and not direct end-consumer products like a PC.
Please click on reply when answering direct to me. That way I get a notification ;)

OPi One Plus does have ubuntu server distro, why don't they just publish the same for Lite2, it can be even  alfa-beta-gamma version or whatever... board just have another network module and one usb3, that's all...
It also can be better to publish H6 sources for UbuntuServer full toolchain. Currently also docs missing how to bring together kernels, uboot and rootfs (wiki empty page)

There is now a working beta image of Ubuntu 16.04.4 with legacy kernel for our beloved lite 2 boards.  I can confirm that WiFi is working and my speed tests show it is running at true 802.11ac speeds.

Note: the image provided is still very rough around the edges and lacks many drivers for other things like USB Ethernet networking for a start.  Things I've noticed: sd card will require manual resizing to fill available space, nano is not installed, sometimes crashes during boot up, legacy 3.10.65 aarch64 (arm64) kernel - I had to use Vi to edit /etc/network/interfaces and add the relevant wpa configuration as nano wasn't included.  After that I was able to ssh in as the root user with password orangepi and configure the remaining bits to my liking.  I have not tested the USB 3.0 speeds yet tho a keyboard hooked to it does work.

There's likely to be more issues as I play with it a bit but that's what I've found so far.

After installing lshw, here is it's report:

I confirm that Wifi 5Ghz (ac) working and both USB ports also working for keyboard
no problems at all... Only on issue that  servicectl restart networking or service networking restart does not work. Any chages to net config needs restart (on normal linux/ubuntu it should not be that way)

Waiting for heat sinks, USB3/SATA adapter, so can test some performance/issues.
Until then will play with docker to test network stability (uptime basically)

Nice finally a image with wifi! 5Ghz wifi didn't worked well on my lite2 got ping times around 1000-3000ms, 2.4Ghz was normal there I got ping times around 12ms.

Usb 3 superspeed didn't worked for me. I connected a SD card reader with UHS-II supported and a UHS-II card with 300Mb/s but only got around 40Mb/s.
With lsusb I see a usb 3 hub/port. But the SD card reader is connect to a different hub/port which doesn't has usb 3 superspeed. (tried both ports to be 100% sure)

to bad this is a 3.10. Kernel and not 4.4 or up. Cool that we se some progress with the images, hope it continues.
