Another day, another mamebone image

This will be the last update until I have time to replace the advmenu front end and streamline the OS. This build has a few more speed improvements and some sound fixes. I also fixed some problems with taking screen snapshots.

  1. I am having a problem flashing this to BBB. I have flashed another image without a problem. Is there anything i need to do to this image other than unzip, write to sd card using win32diskimager? push the button, plug it in… never writes to the flash. I am stumped (but also very new to the beaglebone black).
    Thanks for any help you can offer.

    • Hey Frazz. I know this is a year old, but i found that the process is different for the Beaglebone Black. You have to boot into the current debian environment, and through terminal navigate to


      #sudo nano uEnv.txt


      ##enable BBB: eMMC Flasher:

      And change it to:

      ##enable BBB: eMMC Flasher:


      Then reboot. This should set it to auto write to emmc. just make sure you remove the SD card after you flash or it will keep flashing that image 🙂

      I hope this helps everyone else that keeps searching the interwebs like i did for 4 hours…

  2. Hello,
    I ran your image on my BBB. It booted to desktop, but nothing happend. Nothing autorun app.. And when I want run Advmenu via icon on desktop nothing happen again. Pls help.

    • Oops, found a problem. The start script checks to see if a USB drive is connected and adjusts the advmame config file to use the external drive. I’ll have this fixed in the next build. Here is the fix:

      1) Login as root
      2) cd /bin
      3) rm -rf sh
      4) ln -s bash sh
      5) reboot

      • Hello!

        I meet the same problem when I clicked Advmenu and it doesn’t prompt up anything. Then I triedto use “su” command in LXTerminal and it prompts me to enter password. Can you suggest how to do next?


          • Many thanks for your quick reply while you’re busy 🙂 I can run the program with your zip files in the FAT32 formatted flash drive.
