H3ii is what all of you Windows users have been dreaming of, it is a simple image you can burn to your SDcard, place in your board and boot!  

The installation is an automated process run on first boot and all you have to do is set your uboot and fex files in H3resc!  

Make sure to review the documentation and give it a try!



H3ii is only one of our major updates in the works, we are also still working on the FEL installer and we still urge you to go and vote!


Thanks to all of you, we are currently at 963 downloads and climbing!      


As always, please feel free to provide feedback here on the forum, on our feedback form or come chat with us on IRC in #H3Droid on Freenode!


Thanks again to everyone who has provided their time and support to H3Droid!

We apologize for the delay in releasing this version but due to bugs an a lack of people to alpha test things are taking a bit longer as we progress to fully test.

If you have time to be an alpha tested we would welcome you to come by our IRC channel #H3droid on Freenode IRC network and get in touch with us.  We are happy to provide testing access to those who have time to go through the image and provide useful feedback.  We will soon be planning to add the alpha channel to auto-update in H3resc for those who participate, so it will make testing even easier!

The FEL installer is currently in BETA and we are looking for people to test here as well.  You can find the current BETA software on the new Fel Installer page on our website!


As always, please feel free to provide feedback here on the forum, on our feedback form or come chat with us on IRC in #H3Droid on Freenode!
