Hi Andre, 

  Thanks for your answer!
The thing is that there are a lot of libs&apps in the image and is bigger 
than the available RAM. 
If there's no way to flash the eMMC through the sunxi tools, is there a way 
to boot over an USB storage device 
and flash an image that is store on the USB storage to the eMMC ?

  And there are the phoenix tools. Are these of any use for flashing Linux
