Orbbec Persee to install Ubuntu


I Purchased above and it came with Android and I want to install Ubuntu on it instead of Android. Please advice how to go about it.

  • get a windows machine
  • download ubuntu from the download thread (Persee-ubuntu-14.04-stable-v001.zip)
  • install driverassistant (DriverAssitant_v4.3)
  • start androidtool (AndroidTool_Release_v2.3)
  • click ‘upgrade firmware’
  • below click ‘firmware’ and select the img, loading the image can take some time
  • using a small pin hold down the reset button of the persee (you hear a clicking noise when the button is pressed) while connecting it to the computer, androidtool should read ‘found one LOADER device’ instead of ‘found one ADB device’.
  • click ‘upgrade’

Thank you for that, I manage install Ubuntu 14.04 and then upgraded to Ubuntu 16.

How did you manage the upgrade from Ubuntu 14 to 16?

Hi, I’m a complete n00b with orbbec3d and also in the forum here, having some issues getting started. I’m looking for a way to flash my Persee with Ubuntu 16 as well. Where can I find this “download thread”?
