[SOLVED] XU4 Android SD card install problem

Unread post by zeus2140 » Sat Apr 21, 2018 4:29 am

Hi!
I have an XU4.
I can install Ubuntu, but I can't install android.
I tried several SD cards.
I tried with DiskImage and Etcher.
I tried 4.4.4 and several LineageOS images. (ofc. SD installer roms)
I plug in a power supply. LED works. There is no picture on the monitor (HDMI).
After a long time the LED goes out and the process begins.
I want help pls!

Thanks in advance!
Regards!

The first self-installation process takes up to 20~30 minutes.
Do you have a high-speed UHS-1 type SD card?

Hi!
I wait ~1 hour :(
Yes. My SDCard is SDHC UHS-1.
Check my card fakeSD and another checker program. SD card is correct.

1. format sd card with SD Card Formatter 5.0.0
2. flash android-lineage-14.1-alpha-1.8-sd_installer-odroidxu3-2018-04-15.img with Etcher program.
3. insert SD Card, HDMI and plug in power.
4. wait...
is correct?

DiskImager or Etcher is better?

Can you check the md5sum value of the downloaded file?

Try to flash the image without extracting zip file on Etcher.
Etcher flashes OS image after extracting by itself.
