Well I do have an understanding of what the command is and what every part of it means now... We learn from experience lol. I never had a huge experience with linux haha.
I will try to explain this as best as I can, to make sure I am correct, and to try to clarify the command for other people confused.
dd if=./os-new.nb of=/dev/sdX9
This specifies the file path of where your os-new.nb file is. So for example, the location of my .nb file is:
" so I would do "if=/home/david/os-new.nb
This specify the location of where you are copying the .nb file to.
For this, you would just have to replace the "X
", and only the X
, which is in terms of the letter your device turns up in linux as. This was the part I got confused on. It showed up as sdb3
on my machine, which I thought that I would have to replace the entire sdx9
To find out the letter, in terminal, type in
It will lists all your active drives. Mine shows up as the latter B, under the name windows device. So I would do
So to put it all together, the command I would type in is:
"dd if=/home/david/os-new.nb of=/dev/sdb9
Am I correct?
And also, if there a way to flash your lumia from within windows? Cause it still shows up as a USB drive in windows like usual but it refuses to show up in ubuntu.
