Plug the HDMI dual gender board to the converter board. It is easier to fit the HDMI dual gender board with this angle.
Plug it tight. Check the connector.
Plug the ODROID-C2 / C1+ to the other connector on the HDMI dual gender board.
Plug it tight for stable HDMI connectivity.
The HDMI signal is connected.
Skip this process if backlight control is not necessary.
Add the script to “/etc/rc.local” in your source code for backlight control.
Plug the jumper cable to the GPIO pin #33 and #35.
Plug the other side of the cable to the converter board. Please check the color of the cable in the picture again.
Check the place of the pin.
Plug the micro to micro USB cable.
It gives the C2 or C1+ the power via the converter board.
You are supposed to input 5V/4A PSU to the converter board for the whole system.
The two jumper pins must be plugged to input the power via the microUSB connector.
Plug the standard to micro USB cable for touch signal between C2 / C1+ and converter board.
Place the assembled board on the bottom case and put the screws.
Put screws on the screw hole of the C2 / C1+ board.
Install the eMMC Module / MicroSD card.

Slide out open the 40pin connector slot.
Insert the 40pin FPCB into the connector slot.
The LCD signal goes to the converter board via this FPCB.

Open the 6pin connector. The door must open by 90degree up.
Insert the 6pin FPCB into the connector carefully with tweezers.
The dark part must be inserted correct.
The touchscreen signal goes to the converter board via this 6pin FPCB.
This is one of the most difficult step. If the 6pin FPCB is not inserted correct, it will be loosen and touch signal disconnected.
Close the door.
Check the 40pin and 6pin FPCBs connection.
LCD : 40pin / 20.5mm
Touch screen : 6pin / 3.5mm
Check the hooks and locking holes on the bottom case before you close the front piece.
