Assembly Guide


XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 1

Peel the protective backing off both sides of all the laser-cut parts.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Assemble the front piece first.

You will need (D), 4 x (M), 4 x (K), 4 x (N) for the following step. This will be the front of your CloudShell. 
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 2

Add a spacer(M) on each screw(K) and give them a few easy turns.

Turn the screw with a screwdriver while holding the hex spacer with part(C). See Step 7.

Don't tighten too much or the acrylic will crack.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 3

The same process needs to be repeated at all four holes. The left side in the picture is the top side. The top side of the CloudShell board can be identified as the side with the narrow bezel.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 4

Align the CloudShell board and tighten it with a screw(N). Turn the screws gently and don't apply too much pressure.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 5

The CloudShell board is tightened on the front piece(D) using four screws. Please verify that the LCD viewing area is aligned correctly.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Assemble the bottom piece.

You will need (B), 4 x (J), 2 x (L), 6 x (H) for the following step. 

XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 6

Two spacers(L) need to be positioned at the top two holes. Tighten it with screws(H). Refer to the picture on Step 8.

XU4CloudShell.jpg Tip!

Hold the hex spacer with part(C).


XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 7

Four spacers(J) need to be positioned over the bottom holes.

XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 8

Check that the spacers are located correctly.
Two (L) spacers should be on the top side and four (J) spacers on the bottom side.




XU4CloudShell.jpg Assemble the front piece, bottom piece and HDD.

You will need the front and bottom assembled parts, 4 x screws(H) and 2.5inch HDD for the following step.

The package does not include the HDD.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 9

Align the CloudShell circuit board assembly with the slot on the bottom piece close to where part(L) is installed.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 10

Align the 2.5inch HDD on the bottom piece and slide it into the SATA connector on the CloudShell board.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step11

Hold the HDD and the bottom assembly together.
Turn screw(H) to connect the HDD to the bottom assembly.
All standard HDDs have holes for 3mm screws.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 12

Attach the HDD with all 4 screws. These 4 screws should remain in place unless the HDD needs to be removed.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Install the ODROID-XU4

You will need the above assembled parts (P), 2 x (K), 2 x (I), (G) and ODROID-XU4.

If you are using an eMMC module, make sure the OS is preinstalled and attach the eMMC Module to the ODROID-XU4 before proceeding to the next step.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 13

Align the mounting holes of the ODROID-XU4 over the spacers.
The HDMI connector and LAN connector must be toward the outside.
Add 2 x spacer(I) on the bottom side and gently give them a few easy turns.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 14

Tighten the ODROID-XU4 onto the spacers with 2 x screws (K).

Screws are on the inside and spacers are on the outside.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 15

Turn the spacers using piece(C) with gentle pressure.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 16

Pre-bend the USB3.0 cable(P) to make installation easier.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 17

Plug the USB type A connector into the ODROID-XU4 and plug the USB type B connector into the CloudShell circuit board. We recommend plugging the USB type A connector into the upper slot and installing the cable gently. Alternately, you can install the cable first before installing the ODROID-XU4 board in steps 13 through 15.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Make sure the USB cable is positioned appropriately.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Compare your assembly with this picture.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 18

Plug the ribbon cable(G) to the 30-pin GPIO port on the ODROID-XU4.
Make sure the pins are aligned - it is possible to attach the cable with one row of pins out of alignment.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 19

Plug the the other side of ribbon cable(G) to the 30pin I/O connector on the CloudShell board. 
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 20

Assemble the remaining pieces.

You will need the above assembled parts plus (A), (C), (E), (F) and 4 x screws(H).
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 21

Place the side (E) or (F) into the slot on the bottom assembly. Both sides are identical so it can be flipped up/down or left/right. You may also install one or two 40mm fans (not included) on the side pieces.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 22

Place the other side (E) or (F) into the slot on the bottom assembly. Both sides are identical.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 23

Place the back (C) into the slot on the bottom assembly making sure the openings match the ports on the ODROID-XU4. If you anticipate removing the SD card frequently, part (C) can be left off.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 24

Place the top piece (A) on the assembly. The vent hole on the top piece must be above the cooling fan on the ODRIOD-XU4.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 25

Attach the top piece with 4 x screws(H).
XU4CloudShell.jpg This is the assembled CloudShell from the top.
XU4CloudShell.jpg Step 26

Attach the 4 x adhesive silicon feet on the bottom of the CloudShell. This will keep the screws from scratching your desk. Place them according to your preference.
