Recommendation for a Linux development environment

I'm looking for a development board, for working on a Linux OS.

The Linux distro isn't that important, also the chip, but I prefer them to be rather mainstream (E.G.: ARM based, MMU & virtual memory). The iMX6 is a rather popular SoC (maybe the iMX7 or iMX8, if they are not too new???).

I'll be manipulating the Linux kernel and will need debugging capabilities - a JTAG debugger.

Due to the generic character of the project, I'm in need of a solid recommendation for a development environment: a dev-board with JTAG connection, a matching JTAG and the accompanying host SW.

Naturally, I prefer not the most expensive environment (JLink for $400 would be expensive at this POC stage).
