okay well when i purchased my mk802 from ebay i was told that i was buying the 3rd generation model, and i thought this was a good model but now someone has told me that linux will not run on the mk802 3rd generation because of a different chipset.
*Can anyone please verify if this is true, that linux will not work on mk802 3rd generation models, please please*
However now when i look at the settings of my mk802 i am not sure i have the 3rd generation.
After a graphical boot load up of android and rikomagic images here are what the settings tell me:
Model Number: Rikomagic MK802II
Android Version: 4.0.4
Baseband Version: 1.2
Kernel Version: 3.0.8+
Build Number: RKM-emg4.0.4IMM76D
Okay now i am almost positive that i building the bootable micro sdcard with the linux image for the mk802 mini pc correctly. I thought that i wasn't because when i would check the files on the sdcard in windows it would say that the few files only totaled 16MB's. However, when i plugged my sdcard into my card reader and checked it out in linux it showed 2 different partition numbers for my sdcard (/dev/sdb)
i would see /dev/sdb1 -> which would be about 16MB's
then i would see /dev/sdb2 -> which would total about 3.7GIG's and i would see a bunch of different folders all linux related with linux type filesystems.
So again i am pretty sure that i am building the bootable sdcard correctly, however i am lost as to why my mk802 is not loading linux?
This is getting to be very frustrating...
I hope someone can clarify if it is true that linux will not work for mk802 3rd generation (if i even have a 3rd generation mk802?)
Oh here is a copy of the output from "fdisk -l" after i have written the linux (for mk802) image to my sdcard:
