How do I prepare/put Android on an SD card using etcher
#1
I've tried to install both, android-7.1-rock-64-rock64_atv-v0.3.13-r115-taw.img.gz and android-7.1-rock-64-rockbox_atv-v0.3.13-r115-taw.img.gz but when I try to flash the SD card it says that these images are not bootable. Why does it say this and what do I do to fix this? Likewise when I click "continue" and it flashes to the card, it won't boot. What do I do?

Unarchive the files (so that they are in .img format) and try again.
You can find me on IRC, Discord and Twitter

I've had the most consistent results using the below in bash shell

To usb mmc adapter:
gunzip -c android-7.1-rock-64-rock64_atv-v0.3.13-r115-raw.img.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdX
To sdcard
gunzip -c android-7.1-rock-64-rock64_atv-v0.3.12-r115-raw.img.gz | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblkX

same again in xz
to mmc
xzcat rock64_20171204_stock_android_7.1.2_rooted_emmc.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/sdX
or to sdcard
xzcat rock64_20171204_stock_android_7.1.2_rooted_sd2emmc.img.xz | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblkX

I don't trust etcher, or anything dd'ing w/o telling me what it's doing

For me it's /dev/sdb and /dev/mmbblk0 btw, if in doubt plug or unplug the device and do
sudo dmesg
youl'll see it activated/deactivated and what it's name is

Prob work in MacOS, and should work in win10 with Windows Subsystem for Linux
I've only done myself in Debian.
