Installing .apk files on Marshmallow for iMX6Q/QP SabreSD

Hi everyone! I'm currently trying to run some tests on both iMX6Q and iMX6QP SabreSD running Android Marshmallow. To do this, I need to install some .apk files on both modules, but I'm having trouble doing so.


I only have an HDMI display available, and when trying to use ADB in debug mode I am unable to grant the host computer permission to do so because I can only plug in one USB device at a time: either a mouse or a micro-USB to USB cable connected to the host. I've tried to follow the steps in the FAQ to use ADB over Ethernet, but I can't disable the property on the Android command line because of its restrictions.

As a last resort, I've tried building the Android system image with the .apk files included, but this time the OS doesn't even



Am I doing something wrong? Is there a proper way to do this with my current setup? I would imagine using an LVDS touchscreen to click 'OK' on the debug prompt would bypass this problem completely, but I don't have one at the moment.


Let me know if I should attach more information to this question.


Thanks for your time,
