Flashing the memory

I have a file that is an .img file (ubuntu saucy 13.10 armhf 3.8.13 bone28.img) I load this onto my micro sd card and throw it in the BeagleBone Black and power it up while holding the boot button down but all that happens is the four little led’s blink at patterns for several hours and no flashing occurs. Am I doing something wrong.

Please help



Hi Bill,

That may not be a flasher image. The flashing lights seem to indicate that the OS is running. I would connect a monitor to the bone and see if you get a display. If you do you may have to run a flasher script to get it to flash to the eMMC.
