[Q] Deployment of image to multiple devices
Hi gurus! I have done some searching based on this, but I seem to come across many different answers based on devices, ROMs etc. So I thought I would just ask. Apologies if there is an easy guide I have missed!
I need to configure a number of Android sticks with customized settings and software then deploy them in kiosk environments. Rather than configure each one separately, I'm hoping to be able to deploy an image nice and quickly to them.
The sticks are RK30 based. The webpage is here: http://multitouch.com/istick-a200-fa...-computer.html
and the specs are here: http://multitouch.com/download/datas...-datasheet.pdf
They are pre-rooted and you can download a "Factory Restore Pack" which includes the ADB driver, RKBatch Tool and a single factory image. It seems pretty easy to use the tool to push the image to the device and reset it.
I'm hoping to be able to configure a single device and then backup or export the image to an img file (like the factory default one) then just push this to the other devices using the same method. Is this possible and if so, how would I create the img file?
I've read and tried to understand about img files, but it seems there are boot.img files, system.img files and a whole bunch of others. I'm guessing this is a system.img file, but if I stuff around with no direction, I'll probably just brick a bunch of devices.
I also guess I could install clockwork mod and then backup to an SD, then install cm on each new device and restore the backup, but I'm hoping to do this without even needing cm by just using the RKBatch tool.
I really appreciate any help anyone can provide. Thanks in advance!
