Boot Issue after replacing EMMC
#1
Good afternoon,

I replaced the EMMC on the pinebook with  the optional 128 EMMC sold by Pine64.
After installing  the EMMC the Pinebook will not  boot. I keep getting a power light that blinks green and red. I reinstalled original 64gb emmc and still get the blinking power light when attempting to boot/install to the  emmc. 

I can boot from the sd card however and run an OS from the sd card.
I cannot write to emmc from the sd card and then install an OS.  
I would really appreciate assistance/advice about this.
I was unable to find any information on this issue.

Well gang....
After a quick prayer to Saint Tux
I was able to boot from the EMMC.
I just had to time the reset button press with the power on/boot process.
At this time, I am booted up on the original emmc that came with the PBP and will be reading the wiki and how-tos before upgrading the emmc again.

If you use one of these either from the Pine store or from Amazon

https://store.pine64.org/?product=usb-ad...mmc-module

You can download mrfixit2001's latest to install it from another computer straight to the chip

https://github.com/mrfixit2001/debian_desktop/releases/

Use something like Etcher

Put on the emmc, put in the PBP, hit the reset button and then fire it up....
