How to flash image?

This page cover the process to flash a new operating system onto a AI Camera Dev Kit device.

The process to flash one of these device is slightly different to the process to flash a NEON-2000-JT2 device. To flash a dev kit you need to flash both the internal eMMC and external storage device. The internal eMMC device hosts the bootloader and kernel, the external storage device hosts the operating system and Jetpack.
