Is it complicated? I'm not t total noob but not exactly an experienced linux user.


dd is pretty simple and pretty powerful, so you need to be careful about which devices you try to copy over

firstly you will need to use lsblk to display physical devices and partitions, you will need to find the emmc, on mine atm it's showing as mmcblk2

To make it easier on yourself, extract the image and save to the sdcard.

once you have all that, it's simply a matter of the following:

Code:
sudo dd if=/path/to/image.img of=/dev/mmcblk2

This level of command line mastery is new to me.
I'll give it a go tomorrow (when I am not in work) and see how things go.

I appreciate your efforts and taking the time to reply to your thread.
Many thanks evilbunny.
