Re-reading the partition table ...

If you created or changed a DOS partition, /dev/foo7, say, then use dd(1)
to zero the first 512 bytes:  dd if=/dev/zero of=/dev/foo7 bs=512 count=1
(See fdisk(8).)
done partitioning.
Cant find boot partition  /dev/mmcblk01
Cant find rootfs partition in  /dev/mmcblk02
mount: special device /dev/mmcblk01 does not exist
Failed to mount /dev/mmcblk01.
