If you buy a Rock64 new from Pine, your getting a version 3. If you bought one in the last year or so, probably a version 3.

Bought one in mid to late 2018, probably version 2.

Bought one in mid 2017 to early 2018, probably a version 1, possibly a version 2 if you bought it later than earlier.
Thanks your reply,but,i want to know:
How do I burn the armbian Linux image to EMMC? It seems that can't use Android tool.exe, right? No relevant information can be found everywhere. Please give me some advice!


It has been a long time since I ran Armbian but I'm pretty certain Armbian had a config that allows you to transfer a working SD boot to EMMC. This works if you do NOT have an EMMC to USB module.

Setup Armbian on SD with balenaEtcher. Insert it into your Rock64 and boot from SD card WITH the EMMC module plugged into the Rock64 as well. Run armbian-config. There's an option to transfer everything to EMMC. Your next boot will transfer, automatically reboot to EMMC, and boot from EMMC.

If you have an EMMC to USB adapter (Pine64 store sells one cheap!) then you can use balenaEtcher just as you would a SD card. Plug it into your Rock64 after balenaEtcher is done and boot. That's all.

Thanks again very much!
Now all I know about rock64 is from the forum and online search. Is there a complete document to learn about rock64? For example, I now use the sdcard to start the board. Diept can't detect EMMC. What should I do? There are many operating systems supported by rock64. For each system supporting EMMC, how to write the system to EMMC and where can I find it? For these problems, rock64 officials should provide relevant information. Thank you again for your support!

Do you own one of these? https://store.pine64.org/?product=usb-ad...mmc-module

If yes, plug your EMMC into that and plug it into a USB port on your computer. Format it any filesystem. Download balenaEtcher: https://www.balena.io/etcher/

Use that to burn any EMMC compatible operating system to the EMMC. Plug the EMMC into your Rock64. Boot.

If you DONT have one of those adapters, it gets harder. But, this should do the job just fine: https://forum.pine64.org/showthread.php?tid=4924

Thank you again for your patience reply. I have got all relevant information. now, i dont't have USB burner. Moreover,i'm  in China, USB burners are not easy to buy. Therefore, I can only try it in another way first. Thank you!
