buring image with 'dd' on linux doesn't work (Solved)
#1
I'm using Android 5.1.1 Image Release 20160711 [v1.2.6].

I notice that if I burn this to the sd card with the following command, it doesn't work. pine64 does not boot. Nothing comes up on the screen.

dd bs=1M if=android-ver5.1.1-20160711-pine64-8GB.img of=/dev/mmcblk0p1
umount /dev/mmcblk0p1

Has anyone had success with burning the image using 'dd' on linux? Can you please share the exact command you used?

You cannot write the image to a partition ( your dd command above is not correct ).

Try the following:

sudo dd bs=4M if=android-ver5.1.1-20160711-pine64-8GB.img of=/dev/mmcblk0

also

you must 'unmount' the volume 'before' you run the dd command. If the volume is mounted the dd write will not work either.
