Hello, I have successfully flashed VIM2_Ubuntu-mate-16.04_Linux-4.9_V171028 to my VIM2.
I used an old Windows tablet running Vista(yes, I am ashamed ).
Note: You may want to download a fresh copy of the firmware, just in case your original download was corrupted somehow. Note: Extract the downloaded file.
This is what I did.
1.) Open tool as Administrator, load image. Configuration shown is default after image loads…
NOTE: I change one of the default configuration settings, not everyone does this. The following screenshot shows the configuration I use to burn. Whether or not you choose my configuration is up to you. It should also work with default configuration settings.
2.) Connect USB-C cable to VIM2. Remove unused USB devices from the VIM2, remove any SD card.
3.) Press and continue to hold the VIM2’s power button, do not release.
4.) Connect the USB cable to the PC, once the tool recognizes the VIM2, release the VIM2’s power button.
With the tool showing connection, press start.
Image shows successful burn…
After burning and connecting the VIM2 to power, it booted to the login screen, entered khadas for password, booted straight to desktop.
