new pinebook help
(12-16-2020, 08:42 AM)tophneal Wrote: Your model can be referred to as a PineBook or PineBook 1080.

What you need to do is either:

Create the SD, boot to it, then use dd to write a .img to your emmc


Use the Pine64 Installer/Etcher and the emmc-to-usb adapter to write the .img directly to your emmc.

The first method is likely the route you want to go, since you haven't indicated that you have the emmc-to-usb adapter.
Boot into your Neon SD, and go to the wiki Software Releases page for the Pinebook/PB1080. Download the image you want, and use terminal to write it to your emmc.  This wiki page should have any answers you need concerning this method: Use section 3.2
Thank you so much. I will give this a try been pulling my hair out trying to figure this out. Hopefully I can get this thing doin linuxey things.
