new pinebook help
#4
Tophneal,

Thank you. The dd method worked.

I am not sure if the way I did it was optimal. I flashed the os I wanted to a usb drive.  Booted from sd card and used dd to copy image from usb drive to the emmc. Worked out nicely.

For future reference, can I boot from the sd card and use dd to copy the image from the sd itself to emmc?

Anyway thanks for the help. I cannot get the pine 64 installer to work at all and thought I was doomed. For some reason it will finally download the OS, and when it goes to flash it gives me a rediculously huge error. Has anyone heard of this type of issue before?
