Creating a bootable Micro SD card with Linux Ubuntu from image

Flash UDOO’s Operating system with Linux Ubuntu

  • Go to
  • Choose the right image for your board (Quad/Dual or NEO), just click on it and it will start download immediately
  • Once download has finished, you’ll have a zip file
  • Right-click on it and select “Extract here”
  • Open a terminal window and type
    df -h

    then leave it alone, we’ll need this later on

  • Insert your SD Card
  • Go back to the terminal and type again
    df -h
  • Now you should see your SD Card, take note of the name (e.g./dev/sdc1 or /dev/mmcblk0p1)
  • Unmount the SD Card by typing
    unmount /dev/sdc1
  • Stard copying your Image file to the SD Card
    Please double check this step, wrong operations may result in a wiped hard disk!

    sudo dd bs=1M if=[img_file_path] of=/dev/[sd_name]

    (you can also drag&drop the .img file on the terminal insted writing the full path)
    (the SD Name will be sdc1, same as above but without1 in the end)
    (E.g./dev/sdc1->/dev/sdc or /dev/mmcblk0p1->/dev/mmcblk0)

  • Wait for the process to finish
  • Done! Insert your newly created MicroSD Card in your Udoo and power it up!
