Problems making the boot sd card (android)
#11
I'm excited to mess with mine today at work(boss will be out) since I can't at home. I have Google fiber at home and everything is gigabit, which meant my pine wouldn't communicate with the network.

That sounds about right. The Android OS is about 1.6GB on one partition, then there's a small boot partition as well. The remaining space is the space you can install all your apps and stuff onto.

If you use the PhoenixCard app, it automatically formats the card before burning the OS image.

Thank you for clearing things for me.

Can I copy files to the partition that shows up when i plug in the sdcard to my computer before I boot the first time? and what will the folder layout be on that partition?
Was hoping to put all my APK's and OBB/data files from my tab on the sdcard so it is a easy job copying data files to the right folder and installing the APKs when I recieve the Pine.

Can't see why that wouldn't work, in theory. Though like I said, in Windows, for me at least, it doesn't detect the Android install (just says the card is not formatted, would I like to format now?). Only in Ubuntu did it show me all the partitions and stuff.

Hi
I burned android image to the sd via phoenix, and dont ask me why but had to click twice to get it done right. The first try failed after some writing, so be sure to have a look to the log...

The same happened to me. Had to start the burning process twice. But after the second try it completed as it should.
Now I just have to wait until my Pine arrive (first I need the survey email to specify the model and amount of boards I want) so that I can start messing around with this.

I have ordered the card, when ordering the Pine. Has anyone had issues with these?
