eMMC flash without usb reader
#1
I placed an order that has rockpro64 4GB and a 64GB emmc.
But I forgot to buy an emmc usb reader.

Do I really need the emmc usb reader to flash a linux os?

I can't figure out if there is an easy way to flash the emmc from the NOOB wiki topic
http://wiki.pine64.org/index.php/NOOB#In...MC_Modules

Is there a way to flash the emmc with a SD Card?


Is there any way to add, additional item to an existing order (in order not to have double shipping costs)?

P.S. First time with an sbc, total noob...

The reader is very much optional IMHO - see here.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Started Bionic minimal - now "groovy", Openbox desktop for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb daily driver, dual boot via p-boot with Mobian/f2fs/Phosh on eMMC, Arch/f2fs/Phosh on SDcard
  • PinePhone v1.2a 2G/16Gb that needs USB board replaced

I thought so.
I mean this is the normal thing in x86-64 servers. You can copy an OS from one storage to another, I didn't know if sbcs have something other special Smile

Anyways I contact the sales and they sent me a paypal request to add to my already existing order the USB adapter, so I am covered in all ways.
Thanks the fast response
