    The kernel image and ramdisk image can be downloaded to your flash through an adb cable straight to the device, or through your flash memory card/micro sd card but you have to format it first based on the required filesystem of your android version. Refer to this example SDK for your guide Most of the steps there are for that particular android device only, don't do them directly to your device, as some might not be applicable.

    The kernel is the underlying android linux kernel which performs access to the hardware. The system image provides the android directory tree. The ramdisk is for the initialization during bootup.

    If your board is not compatible with or not using the current linux drivers, then you are going to have many driver customizations.
