UGOOS have released bootable Linux SD card images recently. This means that owners of devices such as the excellent UGOOS UT3S no longer need to reflash their device just to test out Linux.
- Operating System: Dual operating system – Ubuntu 14.10 + Android KitKat 4.4.2
- Chipset: Rockchip RK3288
- CPU: Quad Core, 1.8GHz, Cortex-A17
- GPU: Mali-T764
- Memory: 2GB/4GB
- Internal Storage: 16GB/32GB + Micro SD card slot (up to 32GB)
- Connectivity: Dual band WiFi, 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, 2.4GHz, Gigabit Ethernet, Bluetooth 4.0
- Audio/Video Output: HDMI, SP-DIF, 3.5mm Audio
- Interfaces: 4 x USB 2.0
If you own a UGOOS UT3, UT3S or UM3, the images can be flashed either using Linux via the DD command (sudo dd if=<path_to_img_file> of=<path_to_sdcard>) or on Windows using Win32DiskImager.
I’ll be burning the image to an SD card shortly to test out Linux on my UGOOS UT3S so keep posted.
You can find download links to the Linux SD Card images over at the UGOOS Blog post.
