Using the Android-based images
The Android-based images come in three parts: system, userdata and boot.
These need to be combined to form a complete Android install. For an
explanation of how to do this please see:
If you are interested in getting the source and building these images
yourself please see the following pages:
Using the OpenEmbedded-based images
With the Linaro provided downloads and with ARM’s Fast Models virtual
platform, you can boot a virtual ARMv8 system and run 64-bit binaries.
For more information please see:
Using the Ubuntu-based images
The Ubuntu-based images consist of two parts. The first part is a
hardware pack, which can be found under the hwpacks directory and
contains hardware specific packages (such as the kernel and bootloader).
The second part is the rootfs, which is combined with the hardware pack
to create a complete image. For more information on how to create an
image please see:
