I used Win32DISK (flashing back with Phoenix Card-v4.1 burning software) to write the decompressed BPI W2 Android image file install.img to the 8G SD card, then plugged it into the BPI W2 SD card slot, the SW4 switch dialed to a position, plugged in the power indicator light, pressed the POWER button did not respond, and the HDMI output port did not output. (my board used the SD card to start the Ubuntu system). Who knows what the reason is?

Hello, this image could not use Win32DISK to install on sd card, could you please follow these steps to start up W2?

  • Firstly you need to install an android image : http://wiki.banana-pi.org/Getting_Started_with_BPI-W2#OpenWrt

  • After you installed this image, you could use following steps to update your image.

    • Format your usb disk

    • Copy the file “install.img”, to your root directory usb disk.

    • Plug your usb disk in W2 usb2.0 interface.

    • Use usb-serial to connect W2, open a console terminal on your PC.

    • Then power on W2, and press “Tab” button in console terminal on PC to update image in your W2.

I recommend you use 2018.09 W2 images, it’s easy to install. and you could use Win32DISK or “bpi-copy” to install image.
