Writing an image to on-system emmc
#1
I see great tools and extensions to others for creating bootable SD cards - thanks!

I am still fuzzy on flashing on-system emmc.  So far I am guessing it involves something like Jumpdrive and then the command below?

wget 172.16.42.2/u.img -O - | dd bs=4M conv=noerror,sync of=/dev/mmcblk2

Thanks for clarification.  I cannot seem to see another and the trial to 'dd' a live SD card were as stable as expected.

Cheers

Best to use the appropriate jump drive for your device and etcher or whatever disk burner you've got. See the wiki at the top of the page

Thanks.
I still would like the line(s) used to actually do the flashing as the above is problematic.
