Thanks for your interest in the Intel® Edison Platform.
We would like to let you know that Android Things is out of our support scope, however, we have been investigating in order to help you and we found this thread: Problem in flashing Android Things, there some users have been able to install Android Things on the Edison using a host machine with Ubuntu 16.04 and following these instructions: Installing Android Things* on an Intel Edison Module, since they were reporting issues with the Windows version of Intel Platform Flash Tool Lite. Additionally, later in the thread, someone has posted the link for a newer version of the Platform Flash Tool Lite, take a look at: Intel® Platform Flash Tool Lite, you could try using the latest one.
Hope you find this information useful.
