Bored? Try Angry Birds Rio on the Panda board!

Home / Linaro Blog / Releases / Bored? Try Angry Birds Rio on the Panda board!

Angry Birds Rio runs on the first 11.10 Panda staging build!

For these instructions, you need a PC running Ubuntu 11.04 or later. You also need to get the Android SDK from http://developer.android.com/sdk/ and install it. Also download the apk package file for the Angry Birds game (Angry_Birds_1.3.2.apk).

  • Insert an SD card in a reader connected to your PC running Ubuntu 11.04 or later.
  • In a console type dmesg and note which /dev node the SD card was installed at. Let’s assume that this is /dev/sdc
  • Install a few Ubuntu packages if needed:
    [code]sudo apt-get install linaro-image-tools bzr[/code]
  • Run these commands:
    [code]wget --no-check-certificate https://android-build.linaro.org/jenkins/job/linaro-android_staging-panda-11.10-release/1/artifact/build/out/target/product/pandaboard/boot.tar.bz2
    wget --no-check-certificate https://android-build.linaro.org/jenkins/job/linaro-android_staging-panda-11.10-release/1/artifact/build/out/target/product/pandaboard/system.tar.bz2
    wget --no-check-certificate https://android-build.linaro.org/jenkins/job/linaro-android_staging-panda-11.10-release/1/artifact/build/out/target/product/pandaboard/userdata.tar.bz2
    bzr branch lp:linaro-image-tools
    ./linaro-image-tools/linaro-android-media-create --mmc /dev/sdc --dev beagle --system system.tar.bz2 --userdata userdata.tar.bz2 --boot boot.tar.bz2[/code]
    • Install the file over ADB:
      [code]adb install -r Angry_Birds_1.3.2.apk[/code]
    • Save the birds!
