How to DD to emmc?
#1
Hi,

I'm trying to install Manjaro to my PBP's emmc.  I now have a blank screen as I believe I wrote the .img to the wrong drive. I do have it in SD card so I'm able to boot from SD but can someone tell me how to get out of this mess and install Manjaro to my emmc from sd?  

Thanks!

When you flashed your SD Card, did you use the eMMC installer image? If you did, the setup script should have guided you though the process of putting Manjaro on your eMMC. See if you can flash the eMMC installer image to your SD card. Click here and choose the emmc-installer from the list, if you have not done so all ready.

I didn't see the emmc installer image.  I'll grab the installer from your link and follow from there.  Thanks!

Balena Etcher....
My opinion for transferring to the SD card, or if you have the USB to eMMC adapter (Pine store sells it, but others have found them on Amazon and Ebay)
Then you can install direct to the eMMC drive.
Also Great if you upgrade from the 64gb to the 128gb eMMC...

if the mrfixit kernel can be debianized (config anywhere?) you could make an "official" installer with debootstrap, similar to danielt.

as this is the "debian way" that would also be my preference.

Do you get a black screen on boot?
