Fastboot access via USB3.0


I’ve been reading through the docs, and to flash new firmware it is required to get a special adaptor/cable to access fastboot through the USB3.0 port. This seems a bit unweildy as it requires special equipment - is there a reason fastboot access wasn’t made available through the microUSB as on other boards (e.g. dragonboard 410c)? Can this be changed?


To sidestep the issue, there are two other methods available to install the system:

  1. Can install image by SD card, see here:
  2. Can install image by rsync, see here:
