Power Supply

According to the quick start guide (first edition):

1 x Micro USB cable and a 5V/2A USB power adapter with LPS marking

According to the ASUS Tinker Board official page's FAQ:

Tinker Board supports 5V/1~2.5A power input, but since the SoC’s performance is high, if the connected peripheral required huge power demand from the board, it might cause the power supply issue. Thus we strongly recommended to use the AC adaptor with 5V/2~2.5A power rating, plus LPS marking.

Battery supply is also possible, as long as the power output is no less than 5V/1A.

Flash OS Image

  1. Download Etcher - a powerful cross-platform open source OS image flasher.
  2. Download TinkerOS.
  3. Uncompress the TinkerOS file, select the .img file in Etcher and flash it to the SD card. (Don't worry about the FS format, Etcher will make it FAT32 eventually.)
