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!

I flashed the update that was released yesterday and Playstore is now built-in, nice.

We just uploaded. How do you know it so quickly? How is the testing of the Google Play integration? Does youtube work? Somehow, we can not find Youtube in Google Play so we put one youtube apk inside.

I’ve yet to install other apps, I’ve only installed Plex and it runs fine.
Regarding the YouTube app, it works but I prefer using the browser for YouTube viewing.
