Flashing SD card over USB

I can't help you any further with this atm though... as I have tried a quick prod at the FEL boot stuff, and you've got it booting further than what I did with recent ayufan pine64 image... ie.

I really appreciate you taking the time to look into this. In case I can interest you in looking further (and for anyone else who wants to help or who later has issues with this), here's some detail on my setup and the process I followed:

Board: Pine64 1G (PA641GB), date: 2016-03-21
Power: Board is powered through Pi header 5v pins from 5v supply with 1A limit
Host OS: Ubuntu 17.04 x64 (in Virtualbox on Win10)

Relevant package versions:
  • gcc 6.3.0 20170406
  • libusb-1.0-0-dev

Source repos:
Ayufan's USB Mass storage (master): https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/boot-tools

  1. Boot the P64 into FEL mode by installing a blank SD card into the receptacle.

  2. Alternatively (if you don't have a blank SD card):
    1. Pull the the SD card with the power off.
    2. Power the P64
    3. Put the SD card back in once booted.

  3. Once in FEL mode, run the following commands:
    git clone https://github.com/ayufan-pine64/boot-tools
    cd boot-tools
    make pine64_ums
