emmc image will not flash
(03-25-2020, 02:46 AM)Uturn Wrote: if I load (on OSX, with Balena Etcher or Pine64 Installer) Manjaro-ARM-xfce-pbpro-20.02-emmc-installer-20.02.img.xz to my SDcard and boot my PBP, i will see the Manjaro logo plus spinning circles for ever ( 2 hours then stopped ). Images like Manjaro-ARM-xfce-pbpro-20.02.1.img.xz however will boot ok but I don't know how to flash that on the emmc.
What am I missing in the process of flashing to emmc?

You can use any OS on sdcard and download the iso/img you want on emmc and run gparted to look for you emmc module and open a terminal. Extrat the file and install ddrescue and run this: 
sudo ddrescue --force -D path/to/iso /dev/sdx

Which patch/to/iso should be your iso/img and /dev/sdx should be your emmc module.
It worked for me many times, hope it work for you.
