Hi all

I have been using https://github.com/billw2/rpi-clone to clone sd cards as it uses rsync. It's much quicker than imaging and will clone larger cards to smaller if there is space. The thing is it expects a raspberrypi and so doesn't update the UUID in the armbianEnv.txt and fstab. If I manually do this then the clone is bookable and works fine. I cant script (yet), so if anyone could take a look at the script on git and suggest how this could be changed to work with armbian also i would be really grateful.

Armbian is a community driven open source project. Do you like to contribute your code?

probably best to just download the script from the pullrequest, since there has not been significant activity in that repo, so I do not expect the PR to be merged anytime soon...

 

If original guy has lost interest, maybe you guys would like to collaborate on an active fork.  Assuming this is something you will be maintaining anyway for your own usage.

 

This is the beauty (and opportunity) of F/LOSS.  We have options in such cases.  :thumbup:  :beer:

I won't have time for that, too many other projects already... (including some other projects I rescued like this :-p). I will be maintaining my own fork a bit, but only for my particular and very specific usecase, so going beyond that and properly maintaining the project (including development and/or accepting contributions) is going to take up a lot more time...
