MakerBoard is utility and emulation for development boards, it supports
MediaTek LinkIt Smart 7688 and
MediaTek LinkIt Smart 7688 Duo currently.

MakerBoard can only be running on Linux. It depends on qemu and utilities which you need to install first.
sudo apt-get install qemu-user-static squashfs-tools
Known issue: QEMU on
Ubuntu 14.4 has a critical bug that it doesn't recognize ELF format. Trying to upgrade QEMU to 2.1+ version to solve this problem.
To make sure you have Node.js already, then install MakerBoard globally via NPM:
npm install makerboard -g
makerboard utility can be used once you installed it.
Create an Emulation
Create a folder and prepare an emulation environment in it:
makerboard create my7688
If you want to create emulation environment by using own rootfs image, you can execute with option
makerboard create my7688 -i /opt/foo/rootfs.squashfs
Run an Emulation Environment
run command, we can run and enter to specific emulation environment:
makerboard run my7688
