  1. The OTG port of the Rock64 is a USB Type A Female socket.
  2. All of the USB ports on my desktop systems USB Type A Female sockets.
So what kind of cable would you use to connect the Rock64 to the other computer (i.e., any of my desktop systems)?


You are correct in your observations. Wink 

You need a USB Type A Male-Male cable. Then you can flash the eMMC with a utility like rkflashtool.
