How to flash

You need a SD card with a capacity of 2GB or higher to flash Nemo Mobile.

Prepare SD card

Use GParted or any other tool to create the following ext4 partitions:

  • boot: holds the mainline kernel image and device tree files
  • data: holds the Nemo root filesystem

GParted will ask you to leave the first MB free of the SD card when creating the first partition, this is correct. It’ll be used to store the U-Boot bootloader.

Note: Make sure you have a msdos partition table! If you don’t, flashing U-Boot will make the partition table unusable (for example in case of GPT)!

Burn U-Boot to your SD card

Copy the compiled U-Boot bootloader to the first sector on your SD card: sudo dd if=u-boot-sunxi-with-spl.bin of=/dev/sdX bs=8k seek=1.

Unpack root filesystem

Unpack the downloaded archive into the data partition of the SD card. Afterwards, copy all the files from the /boot directory into the boot partition of the SD card.
