We has tested the tool in the past and it can work, these released Linux System image is made by using the tool on our forum. Could you record the output information and send to us when you use the tool to make image ?
An easy BusyBox rootfs does not work on SD either.
In order to make system image compatible with different capacity SD card and save burn time, and the tool only support to create system image with 3500M, if you have a larger capacity SD card(>4G), you can refer to the wiki to use unallocated space at http://wiki.lemaker.org/LeMaker_Guitar:How_to_resize_system_partition
For eMMC, we need to create our own partitions. 8gb eMMC cannot be left blank and we need to partition it as number as we need to be able to boot to each of them which we want.
This tool is very unmature and needs lots of imporovement.
we need to judge the rootfs wether is the newest or not, and i don't find better method to judge directory, and we also want to compatible with the rootfs.tar.xx from the Linux system distribution website.
Why we need to make compress file from rootfs when we can just address the containing folder?
In order to make image for sd card easy, and have same size with the image for emmc. We will release the detailed steps which tell you to make SD card image step by step in the next week.
I understand you used 'rootfs.img' to be used by script to create the eMMC partitions.But it is not necessary for SD image to have fixed partition size.
The Guitar use the GUID Partition Table（GPT）not Master Boot Record(MBR), and it don't support to use the 'fdisk' tool to partition.
Why not using 'fdisk' which is common and no need installation instead of fixed value 'parted' application?
Thanks for your feedback and support.
