Does anyone have a tutorial on how to program the arduino(sam3x) from android?
I am not sure that is possible. I dont think you can get the arduino ide onto android.
If you use the linux image however, it comes pre loaded with the ide. Besides, it is easier to upload a sketch onto the arduino using an external computer.
Dont take my word on this though, Im still experimenting.
How do you do it externally?

You cannot program the SAM3X from Android, you have to use an external PC. Otherwise you can use the Ubuntu image as visal said. More info here: http://www.udoo.org/tutorials/
Think of arduino and android as two different devices, they just happen to be sitting on the same board. The only special thing they have is a serial line through which you can talk to each other. So when you are creating something, you will most likely write your arduino sketch and your android app separately but create a communication protocol for them to talk to each other.
Actually there are few Android Apps on the Play Store that make you able to program an Arduino from an Android device, like for example ArduinoDroid which is working quite good but only with few compatible devices, and UDOO, for the moment is not one of those.
In order to use UDOO as an Android device and as an Arduino accessory at the same time, you have to program and upload your sketches from and external computer, as suggested.
