Flash images repository

This is the repository of the ready-to-flash images for the FOX Board

Extract the prebuild images

When you download your ready to use fimage from the Flash images repository or from an article it is available in two type of compressed files:

  • ZIP file for the Windows users
    In this case use Winzip or other utility to decompress it and obtain the raw fimage file.

  • TGZ file for the Linux users
    In this case use this command to obtain the raw fimage file.
    tar -xvzf filename.tgz
    
    Linux user can extract the raw file also from the zip file using this command:
    unzip filename.zip
    
The file generated is the raw file to use in all the flashing methods.

Note for foXServe users
Do not try to flash the foXServe ! foXserve comes with a preloaded image that is able to upgrade itself from the web.
