Hmmm, I did not realize that image even existed, I was thinking of the one referenced on the Wiki:  https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/AltArch/Arm32 (with repo location http://mirror.centos.org/altarch/7/isos/armhfp).

Its not my direct area of expertise, so I suspect you'll need someone else to chime in here, but I think you'll most likely need to overwrite the CT3 boot loader with your CT5 boot bits.  I know I had to do that when repurposing the CT3 image on to a CB2.

Thanks David.

So I am clear... This is the image:
http://people.centos.org/hughesjr/armv7hl/cubietruck/images/. Is that

If so, I'm happy to give it a go and report back.
