Quote from: totalguy on January 06, 2014, 06:32:00 amif i have android on the nand anything from play store should work? from what im led to believe, software needs to be made to work with the cubieboard hardware or is that more to do with the kinux side ?because if i can run anything from play store and other places for apps then i will do that because i already found several apps in play store that i could use.

When you put the card into CuB before powering it will load linux, if you do not, it will load android.

Quote from: dd on January 06, 2014, 08:03:08 amYou have meant: win32diskimager, this is for burning SD images to sd,You can use PhoenixUSBpro/PhoenixSuit for burning NAND images to nand, you need to enter CuB to FEL mode before connecting the USB cable, Regarding drivers: in linux,You can put them after first boot. I suppose you can do the same in android if you have root access
