3. Install dfu-utils from synaptic manager (recommended). and download neo tools if you like GUI (I like it).

4. Start your Neo FreeRunner in to NOR menu.

5. Start Neo-tools

  • Double Click 2. Flash your Neo
  • Select Kernel and rootfs
  • In the Dialogue box point to your rootfs and then kernel.
  • A strange looking dialogue box will appears, Just waist time reading it, Just click OK.
  • If the above steps failed, Repeat it again

The Flashing will going to take some time, so be patiant.

  1. Hi, the koolu link seems to be broken… I’ve been searching the net for these two files, but they don’t show up anywhere!!

    I’d really like to have android on my Freerunner, so do you have a copy laying around?
