    I manage to use a (knock-off) WaveShare 3.5 (Version A).
    I bought it on Aliexpress .

    I followed the Method 1 described here: http://www.waveshare.com/wiki/3.5inch_RPi_LCD_(A)

    After unpacking the driver file (http://www.waveshare.com/w/upload/4/4b/LCD-show-161112.tar.gz)
    I ran the installer:
    sudo ./LCD35-show

    After rebooting, i can see the screen displaying the startup log, but X was not starting.
    After investigating Xorg.0.log, i understand that for some reason the X display module is not working.
    I found the following workaround.
    I modified the file /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d/99-fbturbo.conf
    replacing the line
    Driver „fbturbo“
    with
    Driver „fbdev“

    After rebooting, I can see the desktop.

    I have been able to run JiveLite.
    Unfortunately, the available skin are not optimized for the 480×320 display.
    2 options here:
    – You can use the skin for adafruit 2.8 . but it the skin will use only 2/3 of the available screen area.
    – You can tweak Joggler for our screen resolution:
    edit the following file:
    /opt/jivelite/jivelite/share/jive/applets/JogglerSkin/JogglerSkinApplet.lua

    and modify line 290
    Framework:setVideoMode(480, 320, 0, false)

    The modified joggler is not perfect, but it is working.
    i am still looking for a skin dedicated to 480×320 resolution.
    EDIT: Found this one : http://www.pughx2.com/assets/px2/files/jivelite-wav.zip (see complete how-to here http://www.pughx2.com/pitouch.html)
    I will try it tonight
    EDIT2: This skin is perfectly working.
