Installation

1. Use pmbootstrap to create a bootable SD card:

 pmbootstrap init  # pick 'odroid' as manufacturer, 'hc2' as device and 'none' as UI.
 pmbootstrap install --sdcard=/dev/sdX
  • Only the UI 'none' is supported by the ODROID HC2 as there's no HDMI or any other video port available on this device.
  • You must install the nonfree firmware package for this device to get it booting. It contains the binary blobs necessary for the U-boot bootloader to boot and the Realtek firmware to get Ethernet running to access the device over SSH.

2. Insert SD card into the Odroid HC2, plug in the Ethernet cable and turn it on.

3. The Odroid HC2 should boot up and become accessible over SSH.

RootFS on external HDD

Warning! This process is irreversible without reflashing postmarketOS on the microSD card, you have been warned.

After installing postmarketOS on your ODROID HC2, you may want to move the rootFS to the external HDD of the ODROID HC2. A set of tools to accomplish this are provided in the device-odroid-hc2-tools package which can be used as followed with root permissions:

 apk add device-odroid-hc2-tools  # install tools
 install-rootfs-hdd  # run script and answer 'y' and with the device node you want to have the rootFS on (/dev/sdX)
 reboot
