To boot the image from USB flash:

  • Write the image to a USB flash drive
  • Insert the flash drive into the USB3.0 port
  • Load the modified u-boot (from the Armbian image) using the UART method
  • Stop the default boot sequence
  • Execute in u-boot prompt: run usbboot

To flash the image to eMMC:

  • Boot the image from USB flash
  • Write the image to eMMC using dd or other methods
  • Mount the eMMC partition and add a line emmc_fix=on to /boot/armbianEnv.txt file – this changes the DT during boot to switch from SD with card detect switch to a non-removable eMMC.
  • Unmount the eMMC partition and reboot

Please refer to this forum thread for the USB boot details and this thread for a discussion of known eMMC issues.

Supported

Maintainers and community have deep understanding how HW work. We are seniors with 30+ years of experience in Linux + embedded Linux.

Open

Armbian provides open source build framework to build a distribution of optimised Linux hardware interface for armhf, aarch64 and x86.

We provide a selection of images that fits hardware best. If you need different image – use build framework and make whatever you need. Build framework relies on Debian and Ubuntu packages – you can build any combination – stable, old stable or rolling release.

Minimal images comes without armbian-config, armbian-zsh, build-essentials, Python, DKMS, … If you are interested in detailed comparison, CLI images also have those packages:

Make sure you have a good & reliable boot media (SD card / USB key) and a proper power supply. Archives can be flashed with Etcher (all OS) directly.

Insert the SD card into the slot, connect a cable to your network if possible or a display and power your board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes a bit longer.

Support is provided in one of two ways:
