I downloaded dd utility and tried to install it still having issues said I needed u devil and zenity
I was able to get a copy of the udevil file haven't tested it yet tho can't seem to download a copy of zenity from my phone and I have no Internet for my pi since I live in the sticks I have to manually download each thing and install through terminal

I need to be able to burn images on my orangepi zero 2 h3 that I am currently using. For my orange pi zero and my banana pi zero and my raspberry pi zero w that I have. I don't have a windows computer. I was cheated out of mine from a hotel I was staying at. So I am just trying to figure this stuff out as I go.

you would need the system on emmc to be able to flash an image to sdcard

check dd command syntax, something like this

sudo dd bs=4M if=/home/pi/imagename.img of=/dev/mmcblk1

I still haven't been able to get dd manually installed it needed two other programs that I tried to manually install neither of which worked.

There's got to be an easier method of installing stuff on Linux offline. This is ridiculous.

AFAIK, dd is a core command, already installed on every linux OS i have used,even ancient ones.

dunno what you're failing at
