Q: How to download new Android image to the NAND memory of my A20 board?

A: To repair the image on the NAND re-upload it following these steps:

  • 2. Go to firmware tab of the program and point to a valid Android image (the latest official one may also be downloaded above).
  • 3. Disconnect the power supply and USB cable from the A20 board.
  • 4. Make sure NAND_E jumper is closed.
  • 5. Press and hold RECOVERY button, apply power supply (6-16)V, release RECOVERY button.
  • 6. Connect USB cable to the mini USB connector.
  • 7. You will be asked for drivers for the bootloader. Navigate to the folder where you extracted the PhoenixSuit and install the drivers from the respective executables (or manually point the installer to the drivers folder in the PhoenixSuit installation path).
  • 8. PhoenixSuit will detect the board and would ask for the method of writing the image. Choose method of writing the image and confirm your wish to write the image.
  • 9. Wait till upgrade succeeds

Q: How do I upload a Linux image to an SD card which I want to use with my A20 board?

A: To write a Linux image to an SD card under Windows we use Win32 Disk Imager:

  • Download Win32 Disk Imager Win32 Disk Imager
  • Insert card
  • Start program
  • Select file
  • Click "write"

To write a Linux image to an SD card under Linux:

For instance you have an image with the file name of "debian_2g.img". It would be downloaded to the SD card connected to a Linux machine using one of the following commands:

  • # dd bs=4M oflag=sync if=debian_2g.img of=/dev/sdX


  • # cp debian_2g.img /dev/sdX

where X is the uSD card.
