I'm trying to flash my 64GB eMMC  with the latest Android TV build from ayufan: https://github.com/ayufan-rock64/android...3-r115.zip

I've been following this guide: http://files.pine64.org/doc/rock64/guide...o_eMMC.pdf

I'm running Arch Linux. I also tried the exact same steps on a Ubuntu 17.10 machine and I got the exact same behaviour.

Here's the output of the rkinstall script:

Code:

Please note the "Error: 'mtdparts' not found in command line" lines.

This is the output of rkflashtool n:

I have tried to boot my ROCK64 and flash the image in all the following modes:

- Loader Mode, as suggested in ayufan's guide (hold Recovery, press Reset, release Recovery after 3 seconds) and also as suggested in the SADIE script (hold Reset, hold Recovery, release Reset, release Recovery after 3 seconds). Please note that I'm NOT actualy running the SADIE script.
- Normal boot (by simply pressing the Power button)
- MASKROM boot (by pressing the Power button after short-circuiting the eMMC PINS with a jumper)

(Acually I really have no idea how to verify which mode my ROCK64 is actually booting into... Does anybody know a way? Maybe using UART?)

Regardless of what mode I'm trying to use, I ALWAYS get the same ouput for all commands (including the MASK ROM MODE line!).

Unfortunately I do not have a eMMC -> USB adapter (after reading the guides I concluded that it was not strictly necessary anymore so I did not purchase it) so I'm stuck to flashing directly on the board.

So in the end I'm stuck right now. Any help would be really appreciated.

I am in the same exact situation (output identical), however I followed the PDF first and then did actually try SADIE as well.  No Dice!
