It does the all of the following for you:

- Installs all required utilities (if you are on a system with apt or dnf package manager)
- Downloads the Android image of your choosing
- Prepares image for use (unzip)
- Guides you through how to put your Rock64 into the required "Loader Mode"
- Flashes the image on to your Rock64

Github repo

Direct Download (Linux)

Windows version is in the works!


How to use:

1. Unzip the downloaded zip file from above.
2. Run this in a terminal: sudo chmod +x sadie.sh
3. Run SADIE and follow the instructions!

Looks nice fire219... will have to give it a try later on tonight Wink

btw, I see you said you had trouble working out how to select the latest image automatically... maybe look at how ayufan does it in the install_to_eMMC script, and see if you can re-jig that for this?

Yeah... install VirtualBox, install Linux on that, and quit asking for windows version! :-P

The process isn't as polished as fire219s SADIE, but there is a Windows section in the "Installing Android on eMMC" guide from the rock64 resources page which should get the job done on Windows. Basically you download a driver and the flasher tool, and also download the "-update" version of the release you want to install.

A couple of notes on using SADIE (if i am wrong, please correct).

SADIE is designed to run on a separate Linux machine ...

Also you need a USB a to a cable ( commonly called a USB 2.0 male to male cable).

I have so many USB cables laying around, assumed I had every type I could possibly ever need. . but have discovered, this is the one USB cable I do not have.

I did open the SADIE script, and look at the coding .. very impressed, looks like a very well written script. I plan on using it, once I get the right cable ( probably run it from Debian, on a pi 3.

I don't have a emmc card yet, so I am thinking this is the only way I am going to get android on a sd card.

Yeah my previous one was a nasty and dirty fix as 2 USB cable got snipped and soldered with some black nasty (insulation tape) but yeah you can get one.
I am even a proud owner of an eMMC to SD card converter from oDroid but still waiting for the board.
Wasn't in the oDroid shop so I emailed em and they sold me one and for a couple of quid will just be so much easier.

I went ahead and ordered a usb a to a cable.. Should be here by the end of the week.

Will go ahead and set up a Microsd card for Android once it arrives.
