Re: Pinebook and NetBSD 8.99.39 [UPDATE]

I did try that, but did not get the results I expected.

Trying hard to not sound frustrated, but what am I missing. Is the eMMC messed up maybe? Once I boot from the microSD card, what do I dd to the raw ld2 device? I was able to dd arm64.img to /dev/rld2c, but I am not sure how to install the u-boot portion. I hate being a pain, but I really want my NetBSD. (Blast from the 80s?)

    This should be /dev/rld2c
