How do I remove the A20-SOM main board from the A20-SOM-EVB peripheral board? It looks like a very tight fit.
Try to use a thin and long object as a lever. Carefully place it on a spot that won't damage other components. Push each side slowly up before attempting to pull out the A20-SOM from the A20-SOM-EVB's connectors. Never try to remove the whole side in one go! Doing so would most likely damage the connectors and the male pins! Always try to symetrically push up the A20-SOM frm the EVB.
There is no Android on the NAND memory! The boards with NAND used to have Android already loaded! What happened?
We no longer load Android on the NAND memory of the boards. You can upload Android following the FAQ section of the wiki article of your board.
