Where can I find the android images?


#1

Hi,

where can I get the Android files to flash the device with? None of the links at https://github.com/96boards/documentation/blob/master/consumer/rock960/downloads/aosp.md work.

Please advise/help

@vbguy2011

Apologies for the dead links. In fact, these images are not yet being hosted. This section of the downloads repository will be forwarded to AOSP website here: https://source.android.com/setup/

AFAIK, you will need to build images yourself and then following Rock960 flashing instructions. @hipboi might have more insight on this.

I hope this helps. Stay tuned for update to docs page.

You can download the original AOSP images if you ask the really helpful and nice support of Vamrs.

I’m afraid I don’t know if binary images are available from anywhere.

However there are definitely instructions for building it yourself:

The android image download link is:

https://dl.vamrs.com/products/rock960/images/tvbox/ROCK960-model-ab-android-box-7.1-20180522_1120.img

Android upgrade document is here:

We will update the document of the AOSP page soon.

@hipboi Thank you! I actually emailed vamrs and got the same links just a couple of minutes before you posted :slight_smile:

The URL to compile AOSP for Rock960 was changed to :
https://www.96boards.org/documentation/consumer/rock/build/aosp.md.html

I’ve seen a point version bump of Nougat at github, anybody has got a hold of that new Android image?

EDIT: I checked again the VAMRS site and they published the image today. Thanks!
