Is it possible to install Android image on WM 6.5 MC67 ?

Hi,

I have around 300 WM6.5 MC67 and I want to test the Android version on one of them.

 

I downloaded the image but it was not recognized by the WM bootloader update tool.

Is it possible to replace WM bootloader update tool by the Android recovery oneself ?

 

Thanks in advance for your responses.

Sébastien,


The MC67 devices that were released on 2012 are not up-gradable from Windows Embedded to Android due to an insufficient memory footprint.

MC67 devices released on 2013 can have either Android or Windows Embedded, the upgrade (O.S. change)  needs to be done via the depot, this is not field changeable.

There's no public document

There's no public document explaining the process and not all the needed pieces (bootloader, etc) are available on our support website.

The OS Swap is intended to be done only in our support center, as we need to update the part number and modify some of the keyboards overlay moving from Windows to Android. Otherwise the first time you send a device to the repair center, you're going to get back the original OS.

MC67 Hanheld OS migration

Is there any official documentation from Zebra on the process to follow from if we want to convert existing MC67 handhelds from Windows Embedded 6.5 OS to Android? Like the original poster, my company has approx 100 MC67 deployed to customers that now have non-supported windows OS and we would like to change the OS to Android. We are willing to re-code our application. Can anyone provide this info or is their no official migration support for this device from Zebra?

There is no official

There is no official migration support, especially given the age of the devices.  The dates on this forum thread are not accurate - the above conversation about upgrading the devices at a depo is from 2014.

At this point I would suggest reaching out to your local Zebra sales team or reseller who will be able to walk you through our range of Android devices

Thanks,

Darryn.
