Armbian-config is a convenient application that allows basic configuration and software installation with a graphical (commandline) interface, similar to the raspi-config application found on Raspberry Pi's Raspbian.

This application was created and maintained by Armbian project, and you can see more about it here in its github repo

Since it is a script and it is mostly working with Debian packages (only other packages hosted in the Armbian repositories are kernels and headers for their own supported devices), we can have it on our Kirkwood devices too even if they are not armhf or arm64 hardware (the targets of the Armbian project).

Copy-paste this in your commandline (ssh or serial) to download the latest armbian-config application.
It will most likely want to download 60-ish MB of dependencies too.
latest_package_name="$(wget -O- https://apt.armbian.com/pool/main/a/armbian-config/ | grep armbian-config | awk -F'"' '{print $2}' | sed '$!d')"

cd /tmp

wget https://apt.armbian.com/pool/main/a/armbian-config/$latest_package_name

dpkg -i ./$latest_package_name || apt-get --fix-broken install ; dpkg -i ./$latest_package_name

After it is done installing, you can start the application by writing
"armbian-config" as root user

Some Armbian-specific functionality like installing Armbian or updating Armbian-provided kernel and headers won't work for obvious reasons.

@bodhi maybe this could be included in the default rootfs too.
