Step 1: Bring Image to Micro SD and Use Bluetooth Keyboard
Use the heat sink! Asus Tinker runs really hot!
Bring the Image with Win32 Disk imager to the micro SD card
It is a simple "Asus" Debian Jessie. (TinkerOS Debian)
SSH is active after boot and user pass is "linaro"
You have to activate WLAN from hand
Lets try it out!
Step 2: Desktop and Activate WLAN
You are welcome with a "blue" Screen and you not need to type a password in.
You can put a Bluetooth Keyboard Mouse Combo device in, it works immediately
For example Logitech: K400r
If you press on the spinning top lower right you can setup your WLAN.
just choose your SSID and type in your key.
For Internet you can use the Chromium Web-browser.
For 4K Videos you need a Ethernet connection.
CPU and GPU are working hard for show these Videos.
You find example videos on youtube.
You can do:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
sudo apt-get install mc
sudo apt-get install nano
for updates and basic software
sudo apt-get install kodi *
Kodi is in sound and media, but not working yet. I hope Asus make a Version soon.
Settings are in Preferences
For start on console and not to desktop you can use in a terminal
"sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target"
Do not forget user and pass are "linaro"
with passwd you can change it
Have fun with you new Asus Tinker
