In this tutorial, we will show how to use PhoenixSuit to flash an image to the nand flash of MarsBoard A10/A20.

MarsBoard A10/A20 requires PhoenixSuit version 1.0.7 to flash the nand image through MarsBoard A10/A20 USB OTG port. We need to download PhoenixSuit and install it first. During the installation, the software will prompt for if the driver is needed or not. Please always click ‘Yes’.

Before you start

Keep in mind that:

   You can always flash the MarsBoard, it never bricks (as the name :)) unless some hardware damage occurs.

What you will need to flash the board is:

  • a MarsBoard A10/A20 board
  • a PC running Windows (XP 32/64bit, Windows 7 32/64 bit)
  • a micro USB cable with one side plugged in to the OTG port of MarsBoard and the other side plugged into the USB port on PC.


Download the file (PhoenixSuitV1.0.7) from here. Then unzip it and double click PhoenixSuitV1.07_EN.msi, you will see the following interface.


Select the Unknown device then right click and select "Update Driver Software".

Find the file unzipped file you downloaded earlier (Rockusb_Driver_v3.7.rar) and select either the 32/64bit folder then click "OK" to install.

When the driver is installed successful you will then see a Rockusb Device in the device manager window.
