eMMC won't flash
#1
Received my PinePhone earlier this week.

I flashed mobian onto the eMMC last night. This morning, the phone had a solid green light, and would not boot. The LED stays green and would not boot.

Found the test*.img, and ran it.

Everything passes, except the "Flash to eMMC".

not sure what to do at this point. Any other ideas?

Flash an SDcard and check all is well.

How did you flash eMMC? I use, and would recommend, Jumpdrive.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (5.18 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition daily driver, Tow-boot on SPI, Arch/phosh on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, Tow-boot with Arch/Phosh on eMMC

My bad.

Yes, jumpdrive and dd onto the eMMC.

Funny thing. I removed the battery, fired up the windows laptop, used etcher to finally re-flash the phone.

No idea what was going on this day, but everything now works

I have read similar reports every so often. Seems to be a slightly bad flash which is fixed with a reflash.

I wouldn't worry about it unless it continues to happen. If it happens again, redownload your image (could be a dl error, did you verify the checksum?) and see. If it happens after all that, it's likely an emmc issue.
