Today I decided to reinstall Manjaro Plasma on my RockPro64’s eMMC (because I messed up too much with the existing install).
So I created a bootable SD card from my Pinebook Pro with the command
sudo dd if=./Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-rockpro64-21.12.img | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk1 status=progress (
mmcblk1 was the SD card)
Then I inserted this SD card in my RockPro64 and booted from it.
I copied the same
Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-rockpro64-21.12.img on the SD card using a USB Key and then I flashed to eMMC with the same command
sudo dd if=./Manjaro-ARM-kde-plasma-rockpro64-21.12.img | sudo dd of=/dev/mmcblk1 status=progress
(don’t remember if the eMMC was
mmcblk2 but I know I did it right)
After that, another
sudo fdisk -l showed me a warning
GPT PMBR Size Mismatch will be corrected by w(rite) at reboot (or something like that) for the SD card !
I didn’t really care as I thought I didn’t need the SD card anymore. I was thinking to just turn off the RockPro64, remove the SD card and turn it on to boot from the eMMC but that didn’t work as expected…
After that I couldn’t boot anymore neither from the eMMC nor from the SD card. Nothing happens.
I tried flashing the image again on my SD card (which is a brand new card actually) but didn’t work. Then I tried flashing it on another brand new card but the same.
I really don’t know what to do anymore.
I’ve seen on this thread that I should maybe fix the uboot but I didn’t really understand the answer.
If I flash a brand new SD card am I not supposed to have a brand new working uboot already?
What can I do now that I can’t boot at all my RockPro64?
(I really want to avoid opening the RockPro64 to flash the eMMC with an eMMC to USB adapter. I remember it was REALLY annoying closing the RockPro64 aluminum case)
Thanks for your answer
