Android and SD Card
#1
Hello,

i try to get Android running, with an SD card.

I Downloaded android-7.1-rock-64-rock64_atv-v0.3.13-r115-raw.img.gz
When im trying to Flash it with Etcher, its telling me "It looks like this is not a bootable image. The image does not appear to contain a partition table, and might not be recognized or bootable by your device" 
When i Flash it to my sd card and insert the card into the Rock, my Window keeps being black.

When im using the Pine64 Installer, and select "Community Android TV 7.1. (ROCK64 microSD) (should be the same as i dowonloaded..) same behaviour -> Window keeps being black.

So how the heck can i get Android running with an SD card ?

Thanks for helping and sry for bad english

Please try another mciroSD card if you have additional one. Make sure than your power supply is 5V 3A type.

In case anyone else goes down this route.

I got the same warning about boot partition when writing android-7.1-rock-64-rock64_atv-v0.3.13-r115-raw.img.gz to an SD card but it booted fine (I used a 16b card, probably way larger than needed).

On the rock64 (v2) board with 1Gb I have it's a little sluggish. YouTube works fine. Google Play store was so sluggish got the option wait/stop it. But you can install some apps..
