I have just bought a new Olimex A13 WiFi board with the 7" LCD.  When I boot it up on the stock firmware, it loads Android fine.  Looks good on my monitor via VGA, but the LCD is showing an image that is shifted to the right considerably.  Reading the Wiki, it seems I have to re-flash a different image to get the 800x480 resolution.  However, I can't seem to get LiveSuite (windows) to connect. 

I disconnect power & usb, hold down 'Home'.  Launch LiveSuite.  Plug in power, then USB.

As soon as I plug in the USB, I get 'Initialisation fails (513)' LiveSuite?

Am I doing something wrong, or am I  going to have to do this through a Linux liveCD?


I use PhoenixSuit to FLASH Android to the board. I've not tried LiveSuit.

Can you try that instead?
