having some trouble making a disk image
#1
I am new to linux and i am trying to make a disk image of the setup that i have like the ones that are on the pine64 wiki page. I am trying to dd my microsd card and output that as a .img file. However, although it outputs a .img file it doesn't seem to work even if i write that to another microsd card.

Well, what dd command did you use... specifically.

DD works in both directions. We use DD to write the gnu+linux images to the server, just as the users use DD to wrtie the image they download to SD...  just reverse the if= and of=

Why don't you share your full dd command and we'll see what needs fix'in
