How to Load a eMMC from usb adapter
#1
  
    How do I load an OEM Debian from mrfixit on to a eMMC  ?

 Can I install it the same as an sd card ?

  Using a eMMC to usb adapter from the Pine Store  ?

  Just use etcher to install it from a download on another computer  ?

            Thanks  BC

Are there any other eMMC-USB adapters that will work reliably (maybe ones listed on eBay as "BGA169 153")? I am asking because shipping a 5 EUR item from Hong Kong to Europe does not make much sense.

Hi. You don't necessarily need an eMMC-USB adapter. You can always boot from a sd card, download the new Debian image and flash it from there.
See instructions in the wiki

Thanks for your answers. But the SD card slot on my used Pinebook is unreliable. Hence I am asking about eMMC-USB adapters ...

I purchased mine from Pine64 after I put in my 'pre-order', but long before my PBP actually arrived.
I even bought 2 of them to cover any worst case scenarios... ( I think it cost the same price to ship 2 as for one )
The adapters are relatively inexpensive, the wait time did not hurt as I did receive the adapter before my PBP arrived anyhow.
My Main concern was that I wanted to be "certain" the eMMC actually fit into the adapter.
Getting it cheaper and or faster would not do any good if it did not fit the Pine product.
Not all eMMC modules use the same sockets as the Pine products.

Sorry if that does not help you, but I do suggest getting one from Pine

I believe there is one image for the SD card, and an image for the eMMC, the image for the eMMC has the boot order for your PBP,
causing it to boot first from the SD card, while the version for the SD card just "BOOTS"

( Please correct me if I am wrong here )
