For this guide you will need:
Download balenaEtcher and Crankk Image

PC/Laptop with Windows OS
Micro USB to USB A cable and one standard pin jumper

If you’re considering dual mining Helium, please remember that you need to onboard it with Helium first.

To follow this guide, please make sure you have the Raspberry Pi CM4 version of the Linxdot gateway.

The easiest way to distinguish between these two variations is by inspecting the rear side of your device, where the ports are situated.
You can identify Rockchip gateways by the presence of
a ‘BT Pair‘ button located near the antenna connector, while CM4 units lack this feature.

Remove the LAN cable but keep the Antenna on the gateway.
