What to do when you can’t find your Windows phone.
AppInstall can be used to install Appx packages on an IoT-Core device This blog covers an updated version of the toolkit for use on the latest Winsider IoT-Core builds.
In the previous two blogs I discussed using the Web Portal running on a Windows 10 Phone to remotely or in-phone install and Universal Windows Platform app. In this blog I discuss options for install UWP app packages on Windows 10 IoT devices. This is a work in progress as I have not had success some of these methodologies.
My next attempt is to get Blinky to work as part of an Android app. I found some relevant code but my device fell over so I can’t test it yet. Here is the code thus far.
This completes getting Blinky running as a shell script on a Dragonboard 410c
In this activity we will use the ADB command line and shell running on the development system, to directly manipulate the Dragonboard 410c GPIO pins. A version of "Blinky" will be implemented that periodically flashes a LED of the target. A second version will turn the LED on/off under control of a press button. The "app" will run as batch file of ADB commands on the dev machine remotely controlling Dragonboard. A Linux shell script running on the target will also be used that encapsulates the batched ADB commands..
In this exercise we will use Android Studio to create a single screen Android UI app that will access the sensor class to get the number of established sensors on a device. Don’t worry if you don’t have any sensors, It’s just that its more interesting than doing yet another “Hello World”. My system didn’t have any sensors enabled.
The Dragonboard 410C from Arrow has been certified for Windows 10 IoT-Core. It comes though with the Android OS installed. Whilst a subsequent blog will cover the Windows 10 installation to it, this blog focuses upon getting a feel for the board’s capabilities and how to use it in the Android context. This will then will lead to expectations of the board’s functional capabilities in the IoT-Core context for the next blog. The previous blog covered the board’s features.
The Dragonboard 410C from Arrow has been certified for Windows 10 IoT-Core and comes with Android installed. This blog takes a close look at the board’s features. Subsequent blogs will look at using the board in Android and IoT-Core modes.
