Flash Utility:
Linux_Upgrade_Tool_1.27.rar Linux utility provided by Rockchip

Linux_Upgrade_Tool is a Linux utility provided by Rockchip. You need to use it together with a Type-C cable. It can be used to install an image to eMMC, delete image files from eMMC, read from and write to eMMC and etc.

  • Install upgrade_tool: download Linux_Upgrade_Tool_1.27.rar, extract it and set upgrade_tool's access right
 sudo cp upgrade_tool /usr/local/sbin
 sudo chown root:root /usr/local/sbin/upgrade_tool
 sudo chmod 0755 /usr/local/sbin/upgrade_tool
  • Download your wanted image from images-for-eflasher and extract it. For example the image for Lubuntu is "lubuntu-desktop-images.tgz".
  • Refer to the steps in "Flash Image to eMMC with AndroidTool" to boot your board and force it to enter either LOADER or MASKROM mode;
  • Linux: Run the following commands to flash Linux to eMMC and reboot your board:
 sudo upgrade_tool ul MiniLoaderAll.bin
 sudo upgrade_tool di -p parameter.txt
 sudo upgrade_tool di uboot uboot.img
 sudo upgrade_tool di trust trust.img
 sudo upgrade_tool di resource resource.img
 sudo upgrade_tool di kernel kernel.img
 sudo upgrade_tool di boot boot.img
 sudo upgrade_tool di rootfs rootfs.img
 sudo upgrade_tool RD
  • Android 7: Run the following commands to flash Android 7 to eMMC and reboot your board:
sudo upgrade_tool ul MiniLoaderAll.bin
sudo upgrade_tool di -p parameter.txt
sudo upgrade_tool di uboot uboot.img
sudo upgrade_tool di trust trust.img
sudo upgrade_tool di misc misc.img
sudo upgrade_tool di resource resource.img
sudo upgrade_tool di kernel kernel.img
sudo upgrade_tool di boot boot.img
sudo upgrade_tool di recovery recovery.img

  • Android 8: Run the following commands to flash Android 8 to eMMC and reboot your board:
sudo upgrade_tool ul MiniLoaderAll.bin
sudo upgrade_tool di -p parameter.txt
sudo upgrade_tool di uboot uboot.img
sudo upgrade_tool di trust trust.img
sudo upgrade_tool di misc misc.img
sudo upgrade_tool di resource resource.img
sudo upgrade_tool di kernel kernel.img
sudo upgrade_tool di boot boot.img
sudo upgrade_tool di recovery recovery.img
sudo upgrade_tool di system system.img
sudo upgrade_tool di vendor vendor.img
sudo upgrade_tool di oem oem.img
sudo upgrade_tool RD

If the image's MiniLoaderAll.bin has a different version or the image you want to flash to eMMC is different from the image that already exists in eMMC you need to erase eMMC and then flash your new image to it.
Boot your board and enter the LOADER mode, run the following commands to erase eMMC. If a prompt shows "Download Boot Start" and it lasts for 10 seconds you need to press the Reset button and run the following commands again.

 sudo upgrade_tool EF MiniLoaderAll.bin

If it succeeds you will see a prompt showing "Erase flash ok."
