Hello Nikolaus,

makesd, but without u-boot:

if there's something that you'll learn very soon in IT, then the fact that 
everything will take much more longer than expected...

For me your one simple makesd-line resulted in the following:

1.) Assumed that my some years old makesd is completely outdated. So 
searched for a current one and found:


Thus did the folowing actions:

    wget -O makesd "
    chmod a+x makesd
    ./makesd -u

Success! Ok, that was easy.

2.) Clean the SD card with the v55 clone completely:

    sudo dd of=/dev/sdg if=/dev/zero bs=1M conv=fsync

After that all the partitions have been gone. Again easy success.

3.) Execute your suggestion:

    DEV=/dev/sdg makesd qtmoko -r 

Result: "Command makesd not found".

Ok, that's understandable. So modify your suggestion to:

    DEV=/dev/sdg ./makesd qtmoko -r 


    unknown option: -r 
    useage:    ...
    root file system (OS):
        -r <url>
        -r qtmoko
    macros for single partition cards:
        qtmoko = -f ext4 -r qtmoko -d all -k latest (does not need config)

Please advice ...    ;-)

Best regards
