This paper describes the method and progress of developing BeagleBoard-xM as wireless server. In this paper, the authors are going to use BeagleBoard-xM, which is a new low-cost low-power platform based on the Texas Instruments (TI) DM 3730 processor architecture. The DM3730 processor has dual core architecture consisting of ARM and DSP. The whole process involves compilation and configuration of Android Linux kernel, boot loaders (U-boot and X-loader), construction of root file system, development of cross compiler environment and its implementation on to the target board. To make the BeagleBoard-xM as wireless server it should be enabled for Bluetooth USB dongle and development of application program that makes it wireless server for other clients.
