emmc doesnt show up on pc using jumpdrive
#1
Hey guys, received my Pinephone a couple of days ago and decided to flash Mobian to the emmc, but encountered
an issue.

I followed these guides:

They both use Jumpdrive and Etcher to flash the image and it seemed like the easiest way to go about the installation.
I've flashed Jumpdrive to an SD card I had lying around and managed to boot into it, but after I connected the Pinephone
through a cable to the PC, the emmc did not show up on Etcher like it did in both of these videos.
I tried installing a Manjaro VM to see if it's a Windows 10 problem but the phone still doesnt show up.

Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Did you get anywhere with this?  
Maybe try a different SD card, or a different cable.
If it isn't broken, take it apart and fix it.

have you tried unplugging the phone , and then plugging it back in?

Balena Etcher + Jumpdrive 0.6 + Windows 10 simply does not work for me.

I recommend using Win32DiskImager instead. On my machine the eMMC shows up as drives G and H. I have had success flashing by selecting drive G as the destination.

It might also be a good idea to disable automount in Diskpart. This is particularly important for distros that create many partitions (e.g. UBPorts).

Did you use the correct version of jump drive? There's three versions - one for 2g, 3g, and pinetab. They are not cross compatable.
