Is possible to boot system from SD card on Cubieboard. The cpu will try to boot from SD card first. If failed, the CPU will boot from Nand on board. This feature is very useful. We can install Android on Nand for entertainment, and install different Linux Distros on SD card for work/learning.


Write to SD card

  • Linux Platform
  $gzip -d cb-a20-lubuntu-desktop-card-v105.img.gz
  $sudo dd if=cb-a20-lubuntu-desktop-card-v105.img of=/dev/sdX bs=1M

Please replace the /dev/sdX with your SD card on your system.

  • Windows Platform

Use win32diskimager to write the image to SD Card

Important to Know

  1. Suggest to use at least 4GB card
  2. There are so many fake or poor quality SD card on the market.
