Unable to install to eMMC


Recommended Posts

Just getting around to trying to setup my Helios 64 and I am unable to get it to appear under either Windows or OSX.


I have removed the back panel and ensured the USB cable and micro SD are fully seated.


Nothing appears so I can't flash the image to the internal eMMC.


I tried MaskRom mode but RKDevTools fails.


It does the following steps:


Download Boot Start

Download Boot Success

Wait for Maskrom Start

Wait for Maskrom Success

Test Device Start

Test Device Fail


Not sure where to go now as I can't get anything to work on it.


Your help would be greatly appreciated.

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

Yes downloaded all of the latest versions.  Managed to get it flashed eventually after trying numerous times, but when connected using the Serial->USB there as a console message about CRC error.   It still boots but wondered if that indicates there is an issue with the eMMC?

Loading Environment from MMC... *** Warning - bad CRC, using default environment

I also got this warning. After a few seconds of panic I realized it was because the environment section of the MMC was empty. It would be nice to add a note about this to the installation section of the wiki.
