I bought and installed the Google AIY sound kit and am trying to get it to work with my own image. i followed their hacking.md file and installed all the hardware drivers but "arecord -l" shows no capture hardware devices. Hence arecord will not work

Has anyone had success in getting this kit to work without google Aiy image? I know it works on their image but I was hoping to install in on a previously configured raspbian image.
