Odroid Project

1.1 Introduction

Odroid is a project dedicated to delivering mobile entertainment devices with Android. HardKernel is currently selling the Odroid devices to advanced users and will start selling it to the general public (end-users) as soon as the software is more developed.

The Odroid is a sleek, handheld development platform that enables Integrators, Developers and OEMs to create customized applications and Android environmet.

Developers and OEMs can buy the Odroid Developer Edition NOW with Android 1.5-R3 and then download FREE firmware updates in the future.

Please note that the Odroid is a development platform and its specifications are subject to change without notice and it may include Beta and Pre-Release software. As such it is not designed for end-users.

1.2 Hardware Information

Full schematics are stored in the Odroid memory card.

You can see more detailed information in this link.

1.3 Android Platform Development for ODROID

The Free Your Odroid mission allows users to customize their mobile entertainment platform to meet their needs, modify existing software, and create or install any additional software. With Android, Odroid members are working on a stable system services software back-end; Odroid is a collaboration platform for open source and open discussion software projects working on interoperability and shared technology. This evolving Android platform will be used in forthcoming Odroid distributions as well.


The ODROID Platform is composed of 3 major components: the boot loader, the linux kernel and the Android system.

1.4 Android application software development

Under construction ( Refer to )

1.4.1 Download SDK

1.4.2 Setup Development Environment

  • The Windows XP/VISTA ADB device driver for application developers can be found here. [http]

  • The Linux ADB can be setup using these instructions.

    Use the lsusb command first to check the connection between the PC and ODROID.
        # lsusb
        Bus 001 Device 007: ID 18d1:0002  
        Bus 001 Device 005: ID 045e:00b9 Microsoft Corp. Wireless Optical Mouse 3.0
        Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05e3:0608 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB-2.0 4-Port HUB
        Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0cf2:6230 ENE Technology, Inc. 
        Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
        Bus 006 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub
        Bus 005 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

    In this case the ODROID is the first line shown above. Pay attention to the first ID hex code part "18d1".

    That id is used in the following steps to identify this device.

    Create a new file (as root)
        sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
    with the following content
        SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="18d1", MODE="0666"

    Make sure that the text after {idVendor} is the same as the device id found when using the lsusb command. Save and exit the editor.

    To allow execution of the rule, perform a chmod
        # sudo chmod a+rx /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules

    To activate the rule, restart udev
        # sudo /etc/init.d/udev restart

    Final check: To check if the device is available, use the adb tool (which is part of the Android SDK. Download and installation instructions are at
        # adb devices
        List of devices attached
