Pinephone: How to flash image onto eMMC?
The README.md says to flash the ubuntu-touch-pinephone.img onto an external sdcard. How do you directly flash the ubuntu-touch-pinephone.img onto the internal eMMC on the pinephone? to make it run more smoothly.

And to answer quickly your question, you can use
Alternatively you can check documentation to how to flash an image for raspberry pi, it's the same method : "flash image to SD."
@AppLee Can the Mintstick app flash an SD card just like Etcher?
Ubuntu 18.04 uses version 1.3.8 all.deb
@Josele13 Never used, I prefer using
dd; this way I know exactly what I do and what I did wrong ^^
But from what I read, yes it might work the same.
@AppLee You may have read a bit quickly : the question was about flashing to the internal eMMC, not an SDCard, and etcher is of no help.
Does anyone know ? Postmarket OS allows this, (although it is barely useable yet), and I was hoping to find a way to do the same with ubports, to speed up disk access a bit.
@Lanza in the thread AppLee posted is the answer: https://forums.ubports.com/topic/3334/pinephone-tutorial/11
If you are interested I made a script to do the install. It uses pm tool which verifies its download and does some checksum to see if the image you have is the latest successful build available from ubports.
