Pinebook Pro won´t boot either from eMMC or microSD

Here's a silly question: Are you unarchiving the image before flashing it?

I'm not familiar with Etcher at all, and the documentation reads like nonsense to me.  It looks like it was sloppily translated to English.
Yes, I am unarchiving the image. I just got a new sd card. I’ll be retrying today and I’ll let you know if it works.

Mount and check the 2 partitions (in a file manager), open some text files, in /etc,,, extlinux/extlinux.conf
If it all looks OK, probably is
Now the 1st  16 MB is a little harder,, use dd to "yank" them out, compare with md5sum,, like this
dd if=/dev/SD(sdb?,sdc?,whatever) of=16SD bs=1M count=16 (sorry sdb? might not be clear,, ONLY sdb OR sdc, not sdb1)
cd to image
xzcat pinebookpro-debian-desktop-mrfixit191226.img.xz |dd of=16img bs=1M count=16
mv 16img (to same directory where 16SD is)
md5sum 16SD 16img  (and will display vertically lined up 1 above other, should be identical)
I don’t have a Linux box and card reader, ill try and do this in windows. Anyway, I just got a new sd and I’ll be trying with that one. Thanks!
