WARNING - Custom build at your own risk! This task should only be taken on by experienced users.
Whilst we urge you to stick with the recommendations above, some users may want to do a custom build using a different SSD, single-board computer, or other hardware. This is possible but there could be problems that may be difficult to solve for less experienced users.
We have additional RoninOS images available for custom builds.
