    Unsuccessful flashing SD to eMMC - BBBlue


      I've been trying to update my BBBlue to the latest debian (AM3358 Debian 10.3 2020-04-06 4GB SD IoT) as I've not used it in a long while.  I can successfully  boot from SD card with this image but when I attempt to flash the eMMC memory using either the init-eMMC-flasher-v3.sh script running from the command prompt or by booting with the Flasher version of the image file (AM3358 Debian 10.3 2020-04-06 4GB eMMC IoT Flasher) it appears to go through all the motions of writing to eMMC - i.e. boot up, then into rolling LED mode, then shut down.  Unfortunately booting up subsequently with the SD card removed I don't get a full power up and I can't get a connection (USB via  There is no blue status/heatbeat/comms lights - only a blue power light near the jack, a green(?) in the USR LEDs and one down near the LiPo connector


      Even after all this, I can still boot up via SD card successfully and talk to the Cloud9 IDE but I want to do this without the SD installed.


      What am I doing wrong?
