got several problems with a 3 years old ubuntu OS on VIM1 and decided to make it fresh.
But now I am lost…
I downloaded the tool for direct EMMC installation and downloaded the Debian image.
I tried to import it into the USB-Burning-Tool … “parse error”.
This result I get by 2 Debian images and 3 ubuntu images (hope it is correct to rename the files from xxx.img.xyz to xxx.img).
The VIM1 was detected successfully.
So, no success.
Then I flashed a USB Stick with the latest Ubuntu image and the VIM1 booted successfully, so far so good.
But how to transfer the OS from the stick to the EMMC?
I tried the hint on the khadas documentation pages and tried “sudo Emmc-install” and get “you have to use SD-Card”… so disappointing …
The old way? It is the way I can see on the official Khadas website !?
I flashed an SD card, but it doesn’t work (?).
I booted the VIM1, but I can see only the KHADAS text, booting into upgrade mode blanks the screen and brings the text back again after a second.
ETCHER said everything flashed okay, but nothing happened.
I will take a look at the weekend … strange …
