Help, writing bootable Image on flash.

Post by LordXearo »

Hello,

please provide me with help. I can't get an bootable image on my flash storage. Actually im doing the same like the guide says. So i downloaded the latest img from hardkernel. Mount my flash on the eMMc Reader and stick it in a microsd reader that is connected with my Windows 7 (x64) PC. Than i write the image with diskimager to the storage. After that i mount the flash back to the X2 and all i seem to get is a black screen, red led, blue led and a blue led flashing.

I tried with the official version of diskimager and the custom odroid version. Same results.
I tried two different images.

is there something i do worng or am i missing anything?

Do i need to format the storage before i begin writing the image?

Regards,

Xearo

From what you said about the LED's board is booting fine!

Double check your screen, hdmi cable and don't use any adapters.

I checked the screen and used the jumper with 720p and 1080p. It worked with the "out-of-the-box" image. But i will check with a other screen too.

You need a SD card to install Android into your eMMC module.
Check the instruction in this link.

Ok, i have read that before as well.

I thought it would only be necessary if u havent a eMMC reader and that would be a work around. i will try it that way tomorrow.

Thanks

You can use the reader board to copy huge Linux root file system from your host PC to the eMMC module directly.
Or copy movie clips or a lot of MP3 files directly.
