I think I have faulty emmc flash memory in my compute stick. I just tried installing Ubuntu to see if that'd work, but in the first stage of install, the ubuntu installer is stuck and says
mmc0: Card stuck in programming state! mmcblk0 card_busy_detect
mmc0: Timeout waiting for hardware interrupt
mmc0blk0: error -110 sending stop command, original cmd response 0x900, card status 0xe00
It's just stuck on the initial Ubuntu install screen and isn't going any further.
And of course, the compute stick is more than 1 year old so no warranty. This whole experience has left a bad taste in my mouth.
