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 'console' is supported by the ODROID HC2 as there's no HDMI or any other video port available on this device. With UI 'none' you won't have SSH access over Ethernet.
- 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.

|WARNING: This process is irreversible without reflashing postmarketOS on the microSD card, you have been warned.|

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
