Unread postby alphatauri » Sun May 14, 2017 1:17 pm

hello everyone, this is my first post here. Im very new to this.I bought an Odroid XU-4 last November for embedded computer vision and Robotics using opencv 3.2.0 and ROS. My 16GB eMMC is almost full and i want to migrate to a 64GB eMMC. How can i do this but conserving all my things without setting and installing everything again? ill be waiting for suggestions. Thank you guys.

you could rip an image of it then ripp it onto the 64GB chip..then use gparted to resize it..i would however..in the first place ripp an image of it and keep it for safe keeping...

Searching on the Internet for information of "how to" i found a lot of methods but none of these can match my needs or i cant understand them completely (im so noob). Can someone please explain step by step so i can do it and understand it at the same time? im fear of damaging the emmc on the process.
