Volumio on Tinkerboard S
I installed Roon on my Tinkerboard S using the onboard EMMC card. My subscription expired recently and instead of going back to Roon right away, I thought I would try installing Volumio to see whether or not I preferred it over Roon. It certainly is less expensive ($0) compared to Roon ($119). My question is: Can I keep the Roon OS operating system on the EMMC card and, by changing the jumpers to allow me to boot up using the micro sd card instead of the EMMC, insert and boot up using a micro sd card with a Volumio image burnt on it. If not, please advise me how to install Volumio on the Tinkerboard S
You can boot from SD card in ROM mode, see wiki for details.
Light blue words might be a link. Have you try to click on them? Big Grin

I'm new to this forum so what and where can I  find  wiki?
Okay, Per the Tinkerboard manual instructions, I downloaded the Volumio image and flashed it to micro sd card and inserted it into my Tinkerboard S. Then I disabled the eMMC booting priority by setting the jumpers to the Maskrom Mode enabling me to now boot up using the microsd card with the Volumio OS flashed on it. Here's where the manual instructions get ambiguous. The insructions now say to connect the Tinkerboard S to a PC using a micro usb cable at which the PC will now recognize the Tinkerboard S as a mass storage devise which it did as Drive G. The next step was to flash the Volumio OS to the Tinkerboard S. This would have been fine, but I got a message to reformat Drive G. At this point I just stopped and wrote this post. Any idea as to what's going on?
This is expected. I think you can go ahead a flash it and this will flash the eMMC.
