The FACTORY IMAGES tab in the Android Things Console allows you to upload application bundles. You can then create a build for your device that contains one of these bundles. You can use this tab to see the build history for a product.
Upload a bundle
To upload a bundle for your product:
Click UPLOAD to upload your bundle. After you upload the bundle, click the button next to its bundle ID in the bundles table to select it.
If you don't have a bundle, select Empty bundle in the table. If you select an empty bundle, you can test your application by sideloading it using the adb tool.
In the Android Things versions table, select an OS version. Click Next.
Name the build configuration.
Create a build
Click CREATE BUILD to create a build with the selected bundle and OS version.
When the build is complete, a new entry will appear in the Build configuration list table. Each row in the table contains a Download link.
Flash the device
Click the Download link to download the factory image (i.e., the created build).
Find your device in the table of supported hardware platforms. Then click the Get Started link to find instructions on how to flash your device with the downloaded image.
Delete a bundle or build
To permanently delete a bundle or a build for your product:
- Select a bundle from the bundles table. Click the trash can icon.
- Select a build from the Build configuration list table. Click DELETE BUILD from the pop-up menu to the right.
