I’m prepping everything to get my BPI-M2+ up and running in the next few days. I was reading this guide here on how to burn an image to eMMC once booting from SD. https://bananapi.gitbooks.io/bpi-m2-/content/en/howtoburnlinuximagetoemmc.html
My initial thought was that I could dodge the need for another micro sd card if the below would work:
1 write an image to a USB 3.0 flash drive 2 extend the partition to 16 or 32gb 3 copy an image to burn to the eMMC, placing it on same partion from step 1 & 2 4 boot from USB 3.0 5 use the same instructions to dd an image on the flash drive to eMMC?
Has anyone tried anything like this?
