Notes

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.

Quick start | Documentation

Preparation

Make sure you have a good & reliable SD card and a proper power supply. Archives can be uncompressed with 7-Zip on Windows, Keka on OS X and 7z on Linux (apt-get install p7zip-full). RAW images can be written with Etcher (all OS).

Boot

Insert SD card into a slot and power the board. (First) boot (with DHCP) takes up to 35 seconds with a class 10 SD Card and cheapest board.

Login

Login as root on HDMI / serial console or via SSH and use password 1234. You will be prompted to change this password at first login. Next you will be asked to create a normal user account that is sudo enabled (beware of default QWERTY keyboard settings at this stage).
