How to boot Android using SD card

Hi All,

I am very new to Dragonboard 410c. I have following files.

boot.img
cache.img
emmc_appsboot.mbn
persist.img
recover.img
system.img
userdata.img

I want to create a bootable SD card. So I can plug that SD card in to dragonboard and boot it

Any help or pointer would helpful.

Thank you,
Hemang

hi @vchong,

is there any update?

@TsanChao? Update regarding what?

The main instructions to generate the SD card are here:
http://git.linaro.org/ci/job/configs.git/tree/lt-qcom-debian-images-arm64/installer-dragonboard-410c.sh
http://git.linaro.org/ci/job/configs.git/tree/96boards-dragonboard410c-android.yaml

i could be wrong… but I don’t think it is possible to boot Android from SD card. My understanding is that it would require some changes in the Android init scripts which directly mount/use the eMMC block device (at least).

the instructions to boot from SD card on github/wiki are for regular Linux distro (not the QCOM Android builds).
