Would it be FAT32, maybe? With all due respect, I bought my PINE64 a while ago, probably over a year now, but I honestly have never been able to make it run any OS. It's probably the worst investment of my life, considering that I haven't even been able to do anything with it, unlike my Rpi 2 which has never given me any issues with any OS installed on the several SD cards that I own.

What also gets me, is that now there's like four different models, which makes me realize this product probably was a failure.

Most likely is EXT4 format which is popular among Linux environment. EXT4 format more robust than FAT32.

We have create PINE64 installer for ease of creating OS build image, please visit PINE64 NOOB section to get more info: http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/NOOB.
