Download image from Intel Edison

Community Manager

Hello everybody,

I have a question about the image copy process with the dfu-util.

I am looking for a way to get a full image from the Intel Edison to a .img file on my computer and playing this file back to another Intel Edison (like it is possible with dd from an sd-card). But I will use the on-board flash and not the sd-card!

With the dfu-util it should be possible with the -U parameter to read a file from the Intel Edison.

Has anyone done something like that? How do I have to take care about the addresses and where do I have to place the different firmware parts?

Thank you for your help.

Hi Nils,



Thanks for reaching out.



We haven't tried that method, and we don't have information about it. The only method that we recommend is using the SD-Card.



But we encourage you to try it, and feel free to post any helpful information to the community.



Have a nice day.
