Get linaro image tools

Run these commands to get all the dependencies for linaro-image-tools and the tip of linaro-image-tools

  $ sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linaro-maintainers/tools
  $ sudo apt-get update
  $ sudo apt-get install linaro-image-tools
If you’re using a released build (with a -release or from releases.linaro.org), skip this step. If you’re using a “tip” build do not skip the step and do the following: $ sudo apt-get install bzr $ bzr branch lp:linaro-image-tools

Create media (SD card)

Disable automount (instructions provided for Gnome)

  $ TMP1=$(dconf read /org/gnome/desktop/media-handling/automount)
  $ TMP2=$(dconf read /org/gnome/desktop/media-handling/automount-open)
  $ dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/media-handling/automount false
  $ dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/media-handling/automount-open false

Insert an SD card

Run 'dmesg’

$ dmesg

Look for a line that looks like the following at the end of the log

[288582.790722]  sdc: sdc1 sdc2 sdc3 sdc4 < sdc5 sdc6 >

WARNING In the next step, make sure you use /dev/“whatever you see above”.
You can erase your hard drive with the wrong parameter.

Run linaro image tools

$ linaro-android-media-create --mmc /dev/sdc --dev panda --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2

If you’re using tip of linaro image tools

$ ./linaro-image-tools/linaro-android-media-create --mmc /dev/sdc --dev panda --boot boot.tar.bz2 --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2

Install graphics libraries

  $ wget http://people.linaro.org/~vishalbhoj/install-binaries-4.0.4.sh
  $ chmod a+x install-binaries-4.0.4.sh
  $ ./install-binaries-4.0.4.sh

Restore automount

  $ dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/media-handling/automount $TMP1
  $ dconf write /org/gnome/desktop/media-handling/automount-open $TMP2

Remove the SD card from the device writer and plug it into the board.

Using the Prebuilt image. Download the pandaboard.img.bz2 and flash it.
 $bunzip2 -c {image-file} | sudo dd bs=64k of={/dev/mmcblk0 or /dev/sdX}
Follow the “Install graphics libraries” Note: The image will not boot without the graphics libraries.

Check console output

Plug in an USB-to-serial converter and run minicom

$ minicom -D /dev/ttyUSB0 -w -C minicom.txt
