Can’t get this thing going out the gate… It shouldn’t be this hard! Stuck on step 1. Flash the emmc or SD card with proper image and boot.
Brand new Odroid N2+
“Red Dot” emmc ( I have an 8gb and 2x 16GB to play with )
16BG SD Card
I believe I succeed flashing an image on to the EMMC/SD card. I have tried the following:
-Write emmc image using Balena Etcher using Win10 ( using the usb3.0 emmc module writer )
-Write SD card image using Balena Etcher using Win10
-Write emmc image using Balena Etcher using Ubuntu Box ( using the usb3.0 emmc module writer )
-Write emmc image using Balena Etcher using Win10 -Odroid as a USB device.
I flash the emmc with BalenaEtcher. Success. I then install and power the Odroid. In every case, at some point during bootup I get the message… “XXX not properly unmounted. use fsck - data may be corrupted.” Eventually I will get the CLI command line. However I am only able to see the Home Assistant thru my local network in one case and it fails to install software ( endless loop ). in all the other cases it wont even let me see it at all over the network.
It has to be a problem flashing the drive, ejecting the USB writer or a bad image? There are no other steps to do.
I am made a big assumption that the USB writer is not properly shutdown after flashing ( why it says not properly unmounted? ) so i have been focusing my efforts here.
Win10 hated the emmc after flashing - going on about unformatted drives. I ignore windows requests to format and eventually find a way to eject the drive.
Since Win10 isn’t playing nice… I switched to Ubuntu to flash and follow the process again. I unmount everything and eject.
Doesn’t matter what I do. Any ideas?
