Pine64 installer way slow flashing
#1
I just did a speed test. The pine64-Installer, while very convenient, is also super slow.

Flashing the same Debian image to same brand SD card (supplied by Pine at purchase of my boards) using same adapter on same computer running Ubuntu 17.10 Budgie

| _flash_tool_ | _time_to_flash_ |
| Pine64-installer | 32 mins |
| linux dd | 4 mins |

Both cards work fine.

Didn't test basic Etcher.

***

What gives?
Has anyone else noticed this?

Yes, on my Linux box (Mint 18.3). Not sure what the issue is. Could it be something to do with the flatpak app image ?
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

pine installer verifies the image also which is somewhat slower than the write of the image. also, i think etcher is either interpreted as it runs or some similar bs which allows it to be cross platform.
