Linux installation
==Linux installation==
The first step to install Linux on your Cosmo is to make sure that you are running the latest Android firmware, currently '''V23'''.  ====Requirement 1 - Llatest Android firmware v23====You can check the Android version by tapping Settings -> System -> Advanced -> About Phone and scrolling to the end of the page (see Build number detail, in the screenshot below).
====Requirement 2 - Codi firmware v15====
To take advantage of the latest feature you need to manually install CoDi v15. Flashing this firmware is a relatively quick process, because it does not contain the (big) resource file. However, you should make sure you have the latest v14 firmware before starting the update.
Before proceeding, make sure you have updated the CoDi firmware to v14.
Once your Codi is running v14, you can proceed to manually flash version v15. You will need to download the firmware from this location: [http://%20]  and install it manually using the Cover Display Assistant app on Android.
The flashing process does not need the second resource file but it assumes that the v14 firmware is installed.
Next you will have to download the Linux firmware, which will need to be installed into the microSD card on your Cosmo. Insert a microSD card on your Cosmo and make sure it is formatted as MS-DOS(FAT32).
