Hi pineadmin:
I have several questions to ask:

1. For rock64, how to distinguish V2 or V3?

2. How do I burn the armbian Linux image to EMMC? It seems that can't use Android tool.exe, right? No relevant information can be found everywhere. Please give me some advice!

For #1 are you asking how to look at a board and know what it is?

I have a ver 2 board and it states ver 2 in text on the top/front above the SoC. If you look at this https://store.pine64.org/?product=rock64...d-computer picture you can see this was says ver 1.

I have a version 1 board. Anything made for version 2 will work for version 1. I'm not so certain about version 3 on version 1.

If you buy a Rock64 new from Pine, your getting a version 3. If you bought one in the last year or so, probably a version 3.

Bought one in mid to late 2018, probably version 2.

Bought one in mid 2017 to early 2018, probably a version 1, possibly a version 2 if you bought it later than earlier.
Thanks your reply,but,i want to know:

It has been a long time since I ran Armbian but I'm pretty certain Armbian had a config that allows you to transfer a working SD boot to EMMC. This works if you do NOT have an EMMC to USB module.

Setup Armbian on SD with balenaEtcher. Insert it into your Rock64 and boot from SD card WITH the EMMC module plugged into the Rock64 as well. Run armbian-config. There's an option to transfer everything to EMMC. Your next boot will transfer, automatically reboot to EMMC, and boot from EMMC.

If you have an EMMC to USB adapter (Pine64 store sells one cheap!) then you can use balenaEtcher just as you would a SD card. Plug it into your Rock64 after balenaEtcher is done and boot. That's all.
