Very nice work so far! I am enjoying following along with you.. I am interested in doing something similar myself for the "fun of it" as well as good learning experience.  Can you tell me where you got the heatsink assembly from? Thanks!!

Hi, the heatsink is just some 15mm x 100mm x 100m aluminium stock, and the fan/heatsink assembly I got from Ebay. Just search for IBM Server Heatsink Fan (not sure of model).

He is so cute but certainly lives up to his nickname "TROUBLE!"

I love your work and enjoy the videos but I think these '10 second" videos are a bit too quick and doesn't do the topic justice IMO.  I would LOVE to see this topic explored a bit more in say 3-5 minutes??

+Magnus Anthun I guess everyone in YOUR world is supposed to get it in 10 seconds or less I take it? That wasn't my point.. I was just saying it would be a better video if he didn't rush through it in both words and sketchs just to be under 10 seconds.. and whats the purpose of that anyway? To prove you can talk that fast??  Stupid in my opinon.. doesn't do it justice and I doubt most kids watching would understand whats he trying to convey in that time frame.

We ALL don't speed through stuff like yourself I guess..

BeagleBone Black: Any Magic needed to get Angstrom v2013.06 working?

Today, I flashed BBB-eMMC-flasher-v2013.06-2013.10.28.img to my BeagleBone Black's eMMC and just got a black screen with the BeagleBoard logo on the top left of the screen. Flashing the eMMC only took 15 minutes. 

Source used: http://dominion.thruhere.net/koen/angstrom/beaglebone/BBB-eMMC-flasher-v2013.06-2013.10.28.img.xz
microSD card used: SanDisk 4GB

The process I used for downloading it. I used wget -c filename, and the image file successfully downloaded. OS used was Debian 8 on my BeagleBone Black.

In Debian 8 in my BeagleBone Black, I did a unxz and a dcfldd to /dev/sda (my USB SD Card reader). Before powering off, I did a sync;sudo sync. I exchanged the microSD cards to flash the eMMC, using only the power plug; flashing the eMMC completes in 15 minutes.

In Windows 7 on my AMD Sempron Laptop, I decompressed using the Windows-version of xz and did a Win32DiskImager of the .img file to my microSD card. And then, I inserted the microSD card into my BeagleBone Black and flashing the eMMC took only 15 minutes. 

As of this writing, I have a dead OS (Angstrom v2013.06) on my BeagleBone Black's eMMC. It's Ethernet doesn't get an IP assignment. I don't have the proper means of diagnosing (with serial cable) to see why my BBB's eMMC just displays a picture frame.

Is there any magic needed to go past the picture frame?

Now, as of this writing, my BeagleBone Black is back to running Debian 8 from my 8GB microSD card.

The BBB eMMC flashers, at 705MB takes too long to download. I live in the Philippines, and broadband Internet download speed is 1Mbps. It takes 2-3 hours, on an average, to download a compressed (.xz) Angstrom image. Sadly, I thought the v2013.06-2013.10.28 image would have worked.

My BeagleBone Black's model ID is A5B. Is that compatible with v2013.06?
