Install instructions for VIM3 emmc

The install instructions for flashing an OS to the emmc on the VIM3 can be found at

The instructions are for upgrading via a windows computer or an ubuntu computer. I am currently running Arch Linux on an Odroid xu4 - can i use the “ubuntu” instructions and upgrade va my system??? Or do i have to borrow someone else’s computer in order to setup my new Khadas?

@korchnoi1964 You need a PC to upgrade it .

From any PC? Does it have to be a system that is running Windows or Ubuntu? Can it be a PC running a different flavor of Linux such as Debian. Linux Mint, Arch Linux, etc?

Alternatively, can I burn the OS to an SD card and install to the Emmy that way? One post I’ve read says that it will boot to an OEM install and then after I “make (my) choices” it will restart with the Manjaro system installed … it doesn’t specify whether one of the “choices” is to install to the emmc card.

@korchnoi1964 You can refer to our Docs

You can use a pc about another linux system . You need to install our tools.You can try to do it.I think it should be work fine in Debian . But I haven’t tried Arch series systems.

Are there any images that are designed to be installed to the emmc (or just the Ubuntu image)? Can the sd image be flashed to the emmc?

@korchnoi1964 All the ubuntu firmware is here.
