Hi all,

I have Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage download. Please advise how to run it on SD card to install Android on Raspberry Pi3 Model B? Where can I find relevant document?

Thanks

  • It is a program, you should try starting it.

    Hi,

    Whether just copy it on the SD card without running dd and then start it on Raspberry Pi3?

    Do I need an OS pre-installed on the SD card?

    Thanks

  • No, just run it directly on your PC (I assume you have Linux).

    Hi,

    I'm running Ubuntu 16.04 desktop

    Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage is download and saved to /Downloads folder

    On terminal:
    $ cd Downloads/
    $ ls | grep AppImage[code]
    Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage
    [/code]

    $ ls -al Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage[code]
    -rw-rw-r-- 1 satimis satimis 31558488 Sep 26 17:38 Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage
    [/code]

    Whether performed following steps.

    $ sudo chmod a+x Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage

    Then plugin a partitioned SD card on PC

    $ lsblk[code]

    loop5 7:5 0 81.4M 1 loop /snap/core/2898

    sdc is the SD card
    sdc 8:32 1 59.5G 0 disk
    └─sdc1 8:33 1 59.5G 0 part /media/satimis/D722-6ACB

    /media/satimis/D722-6ACB is the mount-point

    Then run following command to install Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage on SD card
    [code]
    ./Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage /media/satimis/D722-6ACB/
    [/code]

    Do I need using sudo? The SD card is vfat system

    Please advise. Thanks

  • No need to give specific path arguments. Just do "sudo ./Emteria.OS_Installer"

    Emteria.OS_Installer ?

    Whether I need to extract Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage first ?

    I don't have AppImageKit, appimagetool and appimaged, running on Ubuntu 16.04 desktop.

    $ sudo ./Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage

  • If you saved it to Downloads, you first need to "cd" there, then do sudo ./Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage

    Hi,

    I copied Emteria.OS_Installer-x86_64.AppImage to another drive, sdb, and executed the command there.

  • Don't copy it to something like a removable drive, that location might not be executable. Simply leave it it in Downloads, make it executable (chmod a+x), then start it there with "sudo ./Emteria..."

  • Did you try using your emteria account?

    You meant the A/C to download the package?

    I'll try it later. Thanks

  • command not found. I then do chmod a+x and after trying to run .AppImage file, I receive: Syntax error: "(" unexpected.

  • Not RPi, you need to run it in your PC

    Also tried "umount SD card" but with the same result.

    Please help. Thanks

    Edit

    I found the trick. There is a small icon next to;
    /media...2-6ACB
    SD Transcent at ..

    I must click the icon to proceed.

    I'll come back after it finished and having tested the microSD card on Rasp Pi3 Model B

    Continue:-

    After;

    Download


    Finished download

    Flashing


    All done

    -> click [QUIT INSTALL] (to finish)

    4 icons are shown on the left vertical panel:
    50 MB Volume
    system
    cache
    userdata

    add following line at end of config.txt
    program_usb_boot_mode=1

    Remark:
    This is a SD card not a microSD card. I need to boot it on USB port.

    Power on Raspberry Pi3 B with the SD card on USB port. Anodroid 7.1.2 starts and I can access Internet,

    Please advise:
    1. Where can I find the terminal to execute commands
    2. Where can I find poweroff/reboot swtches

    Thanks
