Debian image for the ODroid-X2

Bookmark and Share

ODroid-X2If you’re in need of a Debian image for the ODroid-X2 – you can just use the one from the X, download here: odroidx-debian-R2.rar (Magnet / Torrent). User/Pass is “odroidx“.

The image contains a 3 GB filesystem. When flashing it on a bigger SDcard using w32diskimager (odroid edition),  you can resize the filesystem later on the X2 by running “resize2fs /dev/mmcblk0p3” (not working? Then you need to recreate the 3rd partition. Here’s a log that shows you how I did it)

Don’t know what the ODroid-X2 is? It’s the fastest and best single-board-computer you can get at the moment. Where to get it? Here:

    Thanks for hosting the Debian Odroid X2 image! What’s the login/password ?

    • Dunkel85 says:

      That should be user odroidx, pass odroidx.
      You can then get change pw via “passwd”,
      get root via “sudo su” and change root pass also via “passwd”.

      Let me know if you need any help.

    Is this image also working on ODROID-U2?

    • Dunkel85 says:

      Oh, I doubt that. It was specifically mentioned as fitting for the X,
      it’s more a coincidence that it still works properly on the X2.

      I’d suggest to try it with an extra SD card, if you have one.
      Or alternatively backup your current one, flash this image and give it a try.
      If it doesn’t work, you can just flash your backup image again.

      I’d also like to know if this image works for the U2, then I could mention it in the post.
      Feel free to try :)

      Alternatively I’d suggest any Linux image for the U2 from the Hardkernel forums:

    Hey Guys,

    thanks for the image.
    But there is a hiden problem.
    Because the first X just store 1 GB of RAM.
    The X2 updated to 2 GB and on the image there is still 1 GB of RAM. So how can I fix the RAN size???

    I have a problem with this image: there is only 1Gb of RAM instead of 2Gb when I check it with the command “free -m”:

    # free -m
    total used free shared buffers cached
    Mem: 992 947 44 0 99 592
    -/+ buffers/cache: 255 736
    Swap: 0 0 0

    What should I do? thanks for your help

    I think u-boot was not correctly configured:
