On the Braveheart model, there was a postmarketOS based basic Factory Test OS pre-installed on the eMMC.The developer Martijn Braam from postmarketOS has improved the functionality of the image considerably later. Since the 20200501 version, it is able to test all the hardware. It also includes functionality to install a new OS to the eMMC when using with an test image that includes that OS image. The downloadable image just does the hardware tests. Do not flash eMMC to test your device, just dd it to microSD and test from there. New versions are distributed as part of the postmarketOS distribution.
