- MAKE SURE THE TF CARD DOES NOT CONTAIN IMPORTANT FILES!!!
- unzip the downloaded images, use tar under linux, use 7zip under windows.
- You can verify MD5 after unzipping.
- Use 'dd' to write tf-card under linux.
- If you are use windows, please prepare TF card format and use Win32 Diskimager to write the image to disk:
4. [Boot lichee zero]
- Prepare an usb-to-uart cable to watch boot information and log in. The system uart is UART0 (see image at top for location).
- Powered by MicroUSB or 5V pins.
- DO NOT REVERSE CONNECT 5V/GND PINS!!!
5. [Expand rootfs & add swap]
- After booting, in the terminal it will request you to input a username & password.
- Please try root/toortoor or root/licheepi
- After logging in, you can expand the rootfs, make partion changes, and then use resize2fs to expand the size of your file system.
- If you want test the desktop image, you MUST ADD A SWAP FILE!!! (see tutorial below)
8. [Known issues]
- on the lichee_zero_test_Debian_LXDE image, you can't login with a normal user.
- on the lichee_zero_test_Debian_LXDE image, locales have some issues.
