Odroid N2 configuration – Official ROM

This page details the configuration of the Official Odroid Android 9.0 Pie ROM images that are recommended for use with the Odroid N2+, and gives you two options:

Option 1) You can download pre-built images that are designed to be flashed to an eMMC card as-is, and contains all of the configuration parameters detailed below. Click here for the image files and instructions on flashing those to your eMMC card.
