[SOLVED] Odroid Utilities - OTA Update

Post by sousaplex »

I have been testing the OTA update feature found in Odroid utilities and was wondering if there was any documentation on how it works in detail. I have been trying to update a C4 I have in the field running the Android 9 image by HK from the Feb 19 version to the April 14 version, but it doesn't recognize a newer version being available.

To test this, I used a self install image from August, and then let the process update it, but it only updated to Feb 19.

Can anyone share the logic that is used to determine the latest version? Is there a way for me to make my own mirror server, and then just replace the link in Odroid Utilities?

Thanks in advance!

You can find the prop file in /odm/default.prop.

Code: Select all

ro.url.official=https://dn.odroid.com/S905X3/ODROID-C4/Android/pie/64/
ro.url.mirror=https://www.odroid.in/mirror/dn.odroid.com/S905X3/ODROID-C4/Android/pie/64/
And there is latestupdate_pie_64 file.

Odroid Settings app reads that file and detemins lastest version.

I took a look at the prop file in the VFAT partition and the two relevant properties are identical to what you posted. Still, for some reason, the OTA update function does not recognize a later update. It believes the February 19th update is the latest build.

Has anyone else had this issue?
