(Re)flashing to eMMC
#1
Things got a bit messed up when I switched to dev 46, so I'd like to start again.

Has anyone flashed an Ubuntu Touch image to the internal eMMC?  Would you mind detailing how you did that please?  I'll just stick to stable on there for now, and save the experimenting for SD cards!

Thanks.

The steps are similar to those outlined here:
https://gitlab.com/ubports/community-ports/pinephone

1. Download the newest image
2. Use jumpdrive to connect your pinephone to your PC: https://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/PinePh..._Jumpdrive
3. Use dd or alternative tool to flash to phone (see step 2 for details)

I think it is not nescessary anymore to flash jumpdrive to sdcard as it is already included in your current image. You should be able to boot into it by holding power and volume-up buttons down for 5 seconds. I haven't tried that yet though.

Great, thank you.  I hadn't realised that Jumpdrive also applied to Ubuntu Touch (assumed it was for PostmarketOS based distros), and that it was already on the phone.  

Flashed build 45 on, no problem.  Upgraded to 47, all fine.  And now I know how it works, so it's all feeling a lot more comfortable.  Cheers!
