Using DD to Backup and Restore EMMC
(02-01-2020, 01:38 PM)appdev46 Wrote: I re-installed the default Debian image and re-tried the whole process again.  For some reason it worked correctly the second time!

I wish this process was faster though...

At least I can make a backup now and restore when I break things.

Somehow I missed this thread before I started one about the same thing. Though after I dd my image I took it to a different pc to flash that image to another sdcard using balena etcher just to test if my back up worked by booting it off sdcard. Doing it that way had not been successful. I'm nervous to try what you did incase it didn't work. Would it be better to just have my sdcard already bootable with the stock image from the Wiki then just dd my image to that sdcard?
