Installing Armbian on Helios64

Question

I finally assembled my Helios 64 today.  Went well, just took a while.

 

I'm reading the Kobol Wiki page for installing the OS on the internal EMMC and am a bit confused.  Hoping someone can point me in the right direction.

 

I usually boot a SBC the first time from an SD card to do some testing.  Then I'll use Armbian config to install the OS onto the EMMC when I am ready.  The Kobol Wiki talks about first installing uboot from an SD card. Is that actually needed?  Also, do I really need to set up a serial terminal session?  I usually just SSH into the box (I know find the IP address via my DHCP server) and configure everything from there.

You can just write the image to the SD card and boot.

For SSH, as long as you know what IP address the Helios64 gets than you can just use that to connect.

The serial terminal is just to check if things booted correctly or in case of an error that needs to be diagnosed.

You should be fine with your usual process.

Thank you Sir!  I thought that was the case, but needed confirmation.
