I have tons of odroid c1 c2 and had no problem at all building custom kernels and updating/upgrading distros on them. And now I’m stuck completely on a first approach to khadas vim development board.
Yes I’ve connected a serial cable within a minute. Connected VIM via usb-c to my vmware linux box as “Google Android” device. I downloaded Vim_Ubuntu-mate-16.04_Linux-4.9_V170605.7z
Stopped boot and run
It remounted as “Amlogic USB Device”
And then I’ve got the question: What next?
I haven’t found anything useful in khadas docs on several runs through them. And haven’t found anything simple with 1-2-3 steps on the forum. Everything ends with “connect usb-c cable and run custom windows software” And looks like from the forums update via tf card doesn’t work so it’s not an option.
So where’s the easy way to start?
Is it possible to connect khadas vim as an emmc storage?
Can I just
dd if=Vim_Ubuntu-mate-16.04_Linux-4.9_V170605 of=/dev/khadas_emmc somehow?
And I’m using Apple Mac. So option “download some custom microsoft windows software” doesn’t work and since it’s a development board meant for developers it’s really a strange option.
There must be a way to use khadas vim as a development board with a standard utils like mount/dd etc
Can you please tell me how to update it to latest ubuntu the easy way?
And another very important question - how to update it remotely without user’s help?
