The FACTORY IMAGES tab in the Android Things Console allows you to create application bundles for device builds. You can download these builds to flash on your device. Use this tab to see the build history for a product.
Create a bundle
To create a bundle for your product:
Click UPLOAD BUNDLE 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. To use a previously released version, turn off the Automatic update feature.
Automatic updates are enabled by default for the latest version of the Android Things operating system. Keep this setting to automatically receive new Android Things OS releases and security patches.
Create a build
Once you have selected a bundle and OS version, click CREATE BUILD CONFIGURATION to create a build.
When the build is complete, a new entry will appear in the Build configuration list table. Each row in the table contains a Download build link.
Flash the device
Click the Download build 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.
After you flash a device, you can update the build with OTA updates.
Delete a bundle or build
To permanently delete a bundle or a build for your product:
Select a bundle from the Bundles table or a build from the Build configuration list table.
Click the trash can icon.
