Update !

We've developed a fast and reliable USB 3.0 eMMC writer with the following specification.
- USB 3.0 Interface
- Native eMMC 8bit wide data interface, instead of slow SD 4bit width
- Works in HS200 mode
- Flashing speed is 3-4 times faster than a normal USB 3.0 card reader i.e. Transcend TS-RDF5K.
- Windows / Mac / Linux Compatible
- Works with ODROID Orange, Red and Blue eMMC modules (It is not compatible with the Black eMMC Modules)
- Use with Etcher or Win32DiskImager software on your PC
- It can't access the eMMC hidden boot blocks, unfortunately.
- Rated Power : 5V/500mA (including eMMC module)
- Dimensions : 60x26x4.5 mm

We are using the Transcend memory card readers and they are working with the eMMC reader converter.

Please feel free to add any memory card reader which is compatible or non-compatible with Hardkernel's eMMC reader(converter).

I've added a couple of pictures with the latest eMMC / Reader PCBs.

Working:
Trust Robson mini card reader- based on Genesys Logic GL827L, VID/PID 05e3:0723, product page

Not working:
generic SDHC card reader based on Alcor Micro controller, VID/PID 058f:6335 like this one (got mine with EMTEC SDHC card)
Standard Microsystems Corp. 9-in-2 Card Reader VID/PID 0424:2228- this one is salvaged form a dead Lexmark printer

EDIT
Partially working
Broadcom BCM57765/57785- built-in sd/mmc/ms card reader (Acer Aspire v3-571/e1-571 and others with the same motherboard)
-eMMC is visible in system as mmcblk0*
-also "hidden" eMMC partitions are visible:
Code: Select all
$ ls /dev/mmcblk0*
/dev/mmcblk0  /dev/mmcblk0boot0  /dev/mmcblk0boot1  /dev/mmcblk0p1  /dev/mmcblk0p2  /dev/mmcblk0rpmb

-dd-ing to /dev/mmcblk0 is possible but is painfuly slow- below 200kB/s using bs=2M and bs=1M, I'm not sure what effect it has on boot0, boot1 and rpmb partitions

I have ordered an U3, XU and 8gb (linux) and 16gb (android jellybean) eMMC modules.

The 16gb Android Jellybean for XU is working out of the box and is very fast. I can use it as a internet or desktopcomputer in the kitchen hanging from a creen wallmounted, very nice.

But the 8GB Linux emmc module did not work out of the box. It was ordered for the U3 and it didn't booted. Then I was curious and thought, lets read them from my desktop those both cards. And that was a surprice. Both cards were not recognised in Lubuntu on my desktop, pulling out the emmc with microsd attachjment and then replace it with 4 different microsd cards, they were all accepted. I think this reader is not compatible with the way the emmc modules for odroid are read out.

I am a bit disappointed but have now ordered that Transcend USB 3.0 cardreader to give this method another chance. It is the one below:

In the meanwhile the U3 is running from a microSD card samsung class 10 with Lubuntu 13.x (don't know exact version raring ringtail). Starting smoothly desktop environment openbox with LXDE i think. XBMC gotham playing bluray very good, via cabled network and network filesystem nfsv4. Unfortunately I have not got automount working so have to click drives (mount) manually, but no problem.

I will let you now if I can flash the eMMc modules with my new to get Transcend RDF5 USB 3.0 cardreader.

First of all, sorry about the non-booting eMMC.
Even we've tested the eMMC before shipment, 0.5~1% of eMMC module doesn't boot.

BTW, the compatible USB card reader will be very useful to update/change/recover the OS image.

Thanks for the quick reply. That makes me happy. However the fact that I am disappointed, I don't give up on that Transcend RDF5 reader. I know what your product can do already so I am not that worried. The Odroid XU running out of the box Jellybean 4.2.2 perfectly via HDMI on a BenQ FullHD GL2250 with Sound. But I want to flash that one to Lubuntu or Xubuntu so I can use it more like a desktop. Android just doesn't fit my needs.
I'll give an update as soon as I recieve the reader tomorrow.
Peace

Hahaha, I can tell you njow it works. The transcend RDF5 reader it works. I was amazed. How can it be working now?

Both the 8GB and 16 GB eMMC cards I can now manipulate in for instance GParted under Lubuntu desktop PC AMD based, and on a Lubuntu EEEpc T101MT intel atom based via GParted. No problem anymore.

This card reader I ordered locally in the netherlands it was priced at around 7 euro's or so. I guarantee it is not even 10 dollar.

INSIGNIA - SD/MMC Memory Card Reader NS-CR2021
Insignia is a trademark of Best Buy
works great. $7 or so.
Tested on Mac.

For reading linux partition from Mac:
Install OSXFUSE http://osxfuse.github.com/
Install the Ext2 FUSE module. http://sourceforge.net/projects/fuse-ext2/

When EXT drives are mounted with FUSE, the volumes are interpreted as network drives or servers, so if you are hiding desktop icons or connected servers from Finder preferences you won’t see it except in a Finder window sidebar.

I had a cheap direct microSD to USB, did not worked at all. Could put recovery or reformat but writing image was making random errors.

I took a Kingston microSD to SD adapter, plus an old SD to USB adapter, plugged in USB 3.0 as USB 2.0 did not work.

Then my eMMC 5.0 worked fine and me, well, very very happy.... :P It's like if I added the fuel that the rocket XU3Lite needed! My microSD was very slow, even for a class 10.

I just successfully tried flashing an 8GB eMMC module with an UMTS-Stick (MEDIONmobile web stick / Huawei E173u-2).

Tested with:
Ubuntu 15.04
Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Server
OpenMediaVault

Unfortunately the MicroSD eMMC Reader does not fit entirely into the card
slot of the stick, to get it fully inserted, one has to remove its casing,
which is easily done by removing the 2 little screws (Torx T5) and then
cautiously lifting (I simply used my nails, anything like a knife would have
done the same job) the black cover.

Good luck!

Maybe it's a dumb question, but isn't it possible to flash OS directly
on Odroid's C1 eMMC slot via OTG port ? Simply attach the module, plug the cable
and read the board via a laptop.

In theory yes.. but it isn't a good idea.
If the bootloader on eMMC is bad.. you won't get OTG support since you relay on the bootloader to start the usb stack and otg support.

You can use a rooted Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 to write with, I do it all the time.

You have to move microsd dust cover out of the way a bit to get the emmc adapter inserted but not enough to hurt it.

Plugged it all together again and continue to get: "an error occurred when attempting to lock the volume. Error 5: Access is denied"

Have tried several USB ports on both desktop and laptop, using Windows 10.

The AMICROE 85-in-1 Multi Card Reader works. It's amazing how many different cards there are, mostly, I suspect, created to avoid paying licence fees for an existing design...

The numbers on the blister pack are AMI-CFS10 and bar code 9334613001309.

There are no markings on the device to indicate what goes where.
