Why don't you try it yourself?

it is not possible to monitor the transfer rate without altering (or buffering) the dataflow... which indirectly affects the rate, which indirectly affects the SPI connection to the SD card. 

But you are failing to see my point... it 'changes' the parameters of the build... the obvious thing to do, if one is genuinely interested in making the board work, is to remove the pv from the equation and retry; how hard is that?

Simple; follow the instructions and see what happens. We had a similar argument with a gent last week who claimed that "he tried everything" and the board was "dead on arrival"....  no it wasn't. He had not followed instructions, and when he did, his board worked fine...

Ok, so I finally received my board and could try the installation first-hand. I downloaded the Longsleep Ubuntu image and did exactly as instructed in the readme-file, it worked like a charm on my first boot.

Code:
~$ xzcat xenial-pine64-bspkernel.xz|pv|sudo dd of=/dev/sdX bs=1M oflag=sync
