Thank you so much. That worked just fine. I wish I came here and asked for help two days ago and saved myself a huge waste of time. There is a huge amount of bad guides, false leads, and broken scripts floating around the internet regarding how to set this up manually.
Glad you got it going! Yes, there is a lot of stuff out there. Some old. Some new. Some for BeagleBoard, BeagleBoard-xM, and BeagleBone!
its true that there is a huge load of misguiding tutorials out there. I am still stuck with manually setting up my SD card for my Bboard RevC5 board. Most of the tutorials are mentioning cylinders during the partitioning of the SD cards, i am using a 8GB SDHC card and it keeps showing me sectors instead of cylinders. What could be the reason!!!
Unfortunately any article that mentions the need for a specific cylinder setup for the SD card is also ancient… as the bottom doesn’t care…
