The Jumpdrive image is smaller than 50MB. You can keep an microSD card specifically for using Jumpdrive, and there are 64MB microSD cards sold cheaply that will suffice. Jumpdrive also acts as a rescue image in case if you messed up your installation. To do so, you can telnet to '''172.16.42.1''', mount rootfs and fix it!

=== From the booted microSD OS ===
# Flash an OS to the microSD card (and optionally resize the partition, see below)
# Insert microSD card and boot the phone
# Download the desired OS' image on the booted OS or transfer it to the microSD card
# Extract the image file if it is archived
# Flash the image file to eMMC using <code>dd if=new-pinephone-image.img of=/dev/mmcblkX bs=1M status=progress conv=fsync</code> where X is the number label of the eMMC (of the disk, not the partition!). Use the command ''lsblk'' to check your devices: typically with the current kernel the microSD card is /dev/mmcblk0 and the eMMC is /dev/mmcblk2 but as always with ''dd'' be extremely cautious to get the devices correct.
# Turn off phone, remove microSD card and then turn on the phone.
