UDOO is a multi development platform solution for Android, Linux, Arduino™ and Google ADK 2012. The board is designed to provide a flexible environment that allows to explore the new frontiers of the Internet of Things. UDOO allows you to switch between Linux and Android in a few seconds, simply by replacing the Micro SD card and rebooting the system.

Install to a micro SD card
Replace sdX in the following instructions with the device name for the SD card as it appears on your computer.
- Zero the beginning of the SD card:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/sdX bs=1M count=8
- Start fdisk to partition the SD card:
- At the fdisk prompt, delete old partitions and create a new one:
- Type o. This will clear out any partitions on the drive.
- Type p to list partitions. There should be no partitions left.
- Now type n, then p for primary, 1 for the first partition on the drive, 8192 for the first sector, and then press ENTER to accept the default last sector.
- Write the partition table and exit by typing w.
- Create the ext4 filesystem:
- For e2fsprogs < 1.43:
- For e2fsprogs >= 1.43:
mkfs.ext4 -O ^metadata_csum,^64bit /dev/sdX1
- Mount the filesystem:
mount /dev/sdX1 mnt
- Download and extract the root filesystem:
bsdtar -xpf ArchLinuxARM-armv7-latest.tar.gz -C mnt
- Download and install the U-Boot bootloader. Select either dual or quad in the following commands depending on your system:
dd if=u-boot-[dual|quad].imx of=/dev/sdX bs=512 seek=2
- Insert the SD card into the UDOO, connect ethernet, and apply 6-12V power.
- Use the serial console (CN6 micro USB connector) or SSH to the IP address given to the board by your router.
- Login as the default user alarm with the password alarm.
- The default root password is root.
Install the U-Boot package
- In order to receive updates to the U-Boot bootloader, after logging into the system type:
pacman -Sy uboot-udoo-[dual|quad]
- When prompted, press y and hit enter to flash the bootloader to the micro-SD card.
