ROCK64 emmc
#1
Star 
I recently purchased and am awaiting both a Pine64-LTS and a ROCK64, both with emmc modules. After purchasing, I realized that I had not purchased the emmc to usb adapter. This is my fault, but I have been looking into my options in the meantime.

Here is the information that I have gathered, though I may have gotten some things wrong(that is the first part of my question, and leads directly to the second.)

1. On the LTS, there are images I can write to SD, and then install to emmc.
2. These installers are not available on the ROCK(if they are, my question basically ends here, as I can install to emmc without needing to wait for the adapter.)

The second part of my question, which assumes #2 above is true, is whether I can put the emmc into the LTS, write a ROCK image, and just put the emmc into the ROCK?

Since you've got both the R64 and the Pine64 LTS it will be easy. Boot the LTS from SD with the eMMC module mounted. On the LTS download a Rock64 image and flash it to the eMMC. Then place the eMMC into the R64 and it will work. 


Flashing images to eMMC on A64 is much easier, its only the R64 that is a bit tricky.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

That was pretty much the second part of my question, from what I gathered this was an easy work around, I just didn't want to assume it would work.

May I ask, is there a specific reason it cannot be done the same on the ROCK?
