Installation instructions

Installing to SPI (recommended)

NOTE: The SoC startup order for Rockchip systems will prefer SPI, then eMMC, followed by SD last.

You may need to prevent default startup sources from being used to install using the Tow-Boot installer image.

By installing Tow-Boot to SPI, your PINE64 ROCKPro64 will be able to start using standards-based booting without conflicting with the operating system storage.

To do so, you will need to write the SPI installer image to an SD card.

 # dd if=spi.installer.img of=/dev/XXX bs=1M oflag=direct,sync status=progress

Once done, start the system, and in the boot menu, select “Flash firmware to SPI”.

Once this is done, remove the installation media, and verify Tow-Boot starts from power-on.

Installing to shared storage

Using the shared storage strategy on the PINE64 ROCKPro64 can be done by writing the shared.disk-image.img to an SD card or eMMC.

 # dd if=shared.disk-image.img of=/dev/XXX bs=1M oflag=direct,sync status=progress
