In setting up my node, I’ve tried flashing the Umbrel zip file to my micro SD card multiple times through Balena Etcher, and each time it finishes the validation step at 100% but then gives me an error message saying that the flash failed.
After receiving this error multiple times, I eventually decided to proceed with the install process anyways. Surprisingly, I was able to set up my Umbrel account and my node is in the process of verifying the blockchain.
Everything seems to be working fine, but I’m still concerned that the software might not have fully flashed onto the SD card. Is it possible for my node to start verifying blocks without the software fully flashed, or is this evidence that I’m good to go even though I received a flash error?
