For this Quickstart Guide:

  • Development computer with Windows 10 version 2004 (a.k.a. May 2020 update) or higher.
  • Successfully completed the previous lesson from this guide.

* This is a requisite for the entire Quickstart, but our Torizon OTA app will run on any browser, on any Linux, Windows or MacOS.

For this lesson:

  • Access to the board terminal. It is described in the previous lesson on this Quickstart Guide named Linux Terminal and Basic Usage.
