Manual installation of an update package

Unread post by Arnd » Sat Nov 05, 2016 1:29 am

Hi,

i tried to install the Android v2.4 via the Odroid Utility, but had less success. All the time i get the message "package corrupted".

Therefore i checked the possiblity to install the update manually.

There is the possibility to use the fast boot command. But applying this command from the connected pc:

fastboot update updatepackage-odroidc2-eng-s905_5.1.1_master-257.zip
archive does not contain 'android-info.txt'
error: update package 'updatepackage-odroidc2-eng-s905_5.1.1_master-257.zip' has no android-info.txt

it also do not work, as the content of the zip file is different than fastboot expects.

Is there any possiblity to update a running android system without a complete new install?

Thanks in previous.

Try mirror servers first.

If it doesn't help, try this manual update guide.

Mirror server is faster, ok

But nevertheless the odroid utility always states:

"package corrupted".

I had the tool never closed, but is it possible that the screen saver lead to this behaviour?

Therefore my question if it is possible to execute the steps manually?

But update ... after the third try it worked. It seems moving the mouse during downloading helps.

If installing from a package I found that when selecting the file, if I select from the downloads area when the screen first opens it ALWAYS fails saying corrupt. But If I go the actual downloads folder and select the package it works every time. Hoping this helps a few of you, it sure helped me when I figured that out.
