  1. Download Pre-built Android binaries - Download the Android binaries from here
  2. SD Configuration - Configure a SD card
  3. Flashing Android - Copy binaries to SD Card
  4. Flashing Android on eMMC (OMAP4) - Using eMMC images for flashing (use in place of SD card)
  5. Platform Configuration - Hookup hardware connections
  6. Setup a serial terminal - Setup a terminal on host PC
  7. Booting Android - Bootup Android

That's it! If you still have any issues/questions/concerns/suggestions refer to the "Resources" section on the main page.
