Flash your Device¶
The initial FoundriesFactory set up and build can take more than 30 minutes to complete. How to keep track of the current build status can be found at the Watch Your Build page. While you wait, please take this time to follow this introductory tutorial.
Prerequisites and Prework¶
Download LmP system image¶
When you trigger a build, it produces build artifacts as an output which can be downloaded from the Targets tab of your factory, as described in Watch Your Build.
Navigate to the Targets section of your Factory.
Flash LmP system image¶
If you are developing on a platform that has eMMC available such as the NXP iMX8MM-EVK, it is highly recommended that you boot from eMMC rather than SD, and is enforced by default. Read the Supported Machines section for specific details on flashing your system-image using the vendor provided tools.
Boot Device and Connect to the Network¶
Ethernet works out of the box if a DHCP server is available on the local network.
- Connect an Ethernet cable to the board.
- Remove the SD card from your computer, and insert it into the board.
- Apply power to the board.
Your board will connect to the network via Ethernet and will be ready to connect within a minute or two of booting.
Log in via SSH¶

Here are some examples:
If the above methods to connect your device to the network don’t work, try one of the following.
- Temporarily enable and connect to the UART (see directions above in the WiFi section) and determine available IP addresses with:
ip addr show eth0 scope global
ip addr show wlan0 scope global
- Then connect by IP address:
- List connected devices and their local IP addresses on your network router’s administrative interface, and log in by IP address as above.
