Trying to flash Android for OPi PC 2 with PhoenixCard, but no luck. I'm getting Error messages all the time:
Load CardTool Failed!
After a reboot of the laptop I get:
Card Preprocess Failed !228
Really annoying. Tried:
  • Format to normal from PhoenixCard
  • Formatting through Windows (as both FAT32 and FAT)
  • Formatting through SD Formatter (both QUICK and FULL)
  • 3 different SD cards (Samsung EVO+ 32GB (genuine), nameless 8GB I got with my RPi and fake Sandisk lookalike from China 16GB)
  • 2 different USB SD readers
  • Virtual Windows XP build


Nothing seems to work. And as I bought this board to work with Android it is pretty useless right now. Seller won't help through AliExpress (getting stupid questions).


Can someone make me an image with latest OPi PC 2 Android software for 8GB or 32GB that can be flashed with Win32DiskImager or Etcher or something? Or give me a working solution for getting that crappy PhoenixCard software to work.

A reboot fixes that error message for me too (temporarily - if the first thing after the reboot is PhoenixCard). But then I get the other error message (!228). Really frustrating, because I bought this board to play around with Android (will use it later with Armbian probably)...

I have successfully burned Android image for my Orange Pi PC2 and it won't boot, stuck on H5 logo. Also, tried different cards, burn from windows 10, windows 7, windows xp, other cardreader. Same result. Tested Arch linux XFCE image and it's working, so that is not hardware issue.

So Xunlong provided a non-working Android version which has to be flashed through software that's so crappy it'll only work for some?

I have a working version of android but it is on a 16GB card.

If I take and image of this it will be the full 16GB size and will take an age to download. i got this to work by downloading the file from the Mega link provided on another forum from the admin on this site. I used a Windows 7 machine and done a full format on the card using SDFormater. I then did not format to normal but chose startup mode and burned the image without issue. Its boots OK but was originally Chinese language. The other issue with all current OS for the Pi PC2 is that they are all 720 resolution and not 1080.

Tried all of that, except for a Win 7 machine (as I don't own one). I could try a virtual machine for that, but through a virtual XP it didn't work...

Might it be possible to create a 8GB image and upload that somewhere (or e.g. through torrent)? Zipped or rarred of course.

Would not be possible to create an image easily since I am using a 16GB card and the file system has been expanded. I do not want to mess around with it too much since I have a working system.

My advice would be to try the Windows 7 approach. Previously this has worked for me when Windows 10 & 8 have not. I think since most machines in China are using Windows 7 this is really what Phoenix Card has been written for. Every guide video I have seen seems to use a Windows 7 Machine.

Try installing vcredist_x86, that was missing part in my case. I tested it on clean Windows 7 virtual installation.

I've tried almost everything and without success, windows 7, SDFormater, same H5 logo and nothing.Do I need to do anything to boot android? Press button? Plug mouse? Or just plug in power and wait?
