HOWTO - eMMC install script for Ropi
Here is the emmc install script. Its for testers only, we think its working fine but we could use your help to test so we can include in the next release.
After downloading , you can install with

sudo tar -xvf emmc.install-ropi.tar.gz -C /

Don't forget to restart emulation-station and you can find the script in the retro-pie menu (see pics)
If you have installed to emmc before using dd, It's recommended to use this new script as it properly formats the emmc, creates partitions and uses rsync to copy files over.

Attached Files
.gz   emmc.install-ropi.tar.gz (Size: 30 KB / Downloads: 497)
Tutorial to allow system to recognize SD card presence after installing to EMMC:

  1. Turn off your board
  2. Reinsert your SD card with RetrOrange Pi
  3. Turn on your board
  4. Go to Desktop and open a terminal window
  5. Backup your boot files: run ‘cp /boot/boot* ~/’
  6. Run ‘sudo pluma /boot/*.cmd’
  7. In file boot-retro.cmd , change /dev/mmcblk0p3 to /dev/mmcblk1p3
  8. In file boot.kodi.cmd, change to boot=/dev/mmcblk1p1 and disk= /dev/mmcblk1p2
  9. Save all files and close Pluma
  10. Run ‘sudo mkimage –C none –A arm –T script –d /boot/boot-retro.cmd /boot/boot.scr
  11. Leave SD card inside slot and reboot board: sudo reboot
Doesn't work
