Hi

Is there a Rock64 Android which boots from USB? Preferably from Rock64's USB 3 socket?

This is what I have tried:
  • Bionic works flawlessly with a M.2 SSD in an USB 3 adaptor using the USB 3 socket.
  • With Etcher (Linux and Win10) and rock64_20171204_stock_android_7.1.2_rooted_emmc.img as well as rock64_20180606_stock_android_8.1_emmcboot.img Etcher reports "It looks like this is not a bootable image", this probably because of a missing partition table.
  • With Pine64Installer (v 2.0.0 beta 3, Win10) and Stock android 8.1 emmc (build 20180606) from the list I get  "Invalid Message Unhandled rejection undefined Invalid message" after download.
  • Flashing ayufan's android-7.1-rock-64-rock64_atv-v0.3.13-r115-raw.img with Pin64Installer worked, but the image didn't boot.
Any suggestions?

Thanks for your reply. I will use an emmc to begin with and hope for an update.
