ODROID [X/X2/U/U2] Flashing Images on Linux

Unread post by mdrjr » Sat Feb 23, 2013 11:54 am

Steps.

WARNING: Ubuntu and some other distributions, auto-mount the media when inserted. This can cause inconsistency and errors! You can umount all using: umount /dev/sdX*

1. Download the selected image (Android/Ubuntu/...).
2. Unpack it. (If its a .xz extension you can use xz -d image.img.xz on cmd line).
3. A good step is always to clear your destination media first! dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=4M
4. Flash your image: sudo dd if=image.img of=/dev/sdX bs=4M
5. Always type sync before removing the media to make sure that all data is written.

Dear Sir, I have dd the img into a 16GB sandisk micro sd. I realise that is 4.5GB and the remaining 10GB of space is not allocated. Can I just gparted and resize the the rootfs so that those free space will be use.

Yes you can. Put the card in your card reader of your Mac/PC, start gparted, choose the card with the new system (!), unmount the root file system and resize it.

O-Droid blog announcements, such as this one: http://com.odroid.com/sigong/nf_file_bo ... g=&bid=214
only mention Windows flashing methods.
This is 1. Suprising, since the whole of Hardkernel business is reliant on Linux (O-droid OS's) and 2. Off-putting for any non-Windows user.

The May issue of ODROID Magazine has an article on how to flash images to SD and eMMC for most major operating systems. It should be published within a few days.

1. plug in your adapter
2. open disk utility, look for the adapter, unmount all partitions (unmount, not eject) such that they should be greyed out in Disk Utility.
3. still in disk utility, check what is the disk number (e.g. disk1, disk2, ...)
4. in Terminal: sudo dd bs=4m if=/PATH/TO/IMAGE/trusty_dev_center_18052014.img of=/dev/rdiskX
where X is the disk number from step 3.

To make a backup, same except you have "if" and "of" reversed.
