How to boot from SD
(12-18-2020, 11:21 PM)Zebulon Walton Wrote: If you're comfortable working from the command line in a Unix/Linux shell, "dd" works really well for flashing SD cards, but you'd better be REALLY certain you're writing to the correct device. (The thing about dd is that it's an old school Unix command which adheres to the ancient Unix philosophy of giving users enough rope to hang themselves.)
I tried dd at first, but Pinephone couldn't read the SD card, so I used Etcher instead (which then worked).
