Ev3dev Firmware

This solution requires installing the ev3dev Linux firmware in an SD card. Notice that installing this Linux firmware does not erase the original LEGO firmware, which can be always restored by removing the SD card. Since this version is based on Debian Linux, it has the advantage of supporting several other programing languages, software packages and other hardware connected trough the USB or Bluetooth interface. The following are the recommended steps for users that want to try this method:

Install  the ev3firmware in a SD card

Install the GCC cross-compiler (same as the standard firmware)

Setup the network communication

Create, compile and run the “Hello World” program

– Learn how to manipulate motors and sensor

– Try advanced demos (coming soon)
