[SOLVED] booting ubuntu 18.04 from eMMC

Unread post by Catscrash » Tue Jan 15, 2019 1:22 am

Hi,

I'm trying to boot the image ubuntu-18.04.1-4.14-minimal-odroid-xu4-20181203.img from eMMC. I downloaded it and unxzed it. Then used the microSD eMMC Reader to dd the image onto the eMMC card, plugged it in, switched the switch to "eMMC" and plugged the power in, but nothing happened. The UART shows absolutely nothing and the power-button doesn't do anything as well.

If I do the same with a microSD card it works just fine, as soon as it's booted it even recognizes the eMMC module...

Do I need to burn it differently to the eMMC than to the SD?

thanks!

just retried with etcher, still nothing. It doesn't even boot up u-boot when switched to eMMC with this eMMC. Is it too new? I had a 0.3 before, which worked just fine

Which eMMC do you use? Is it Orange?

If you reuse an eMMC for other platforms, you have to run a recovery process to install the XU4 specific boot blobs into the eMMC hidden boot blocks.
