I was using Ayufan's Ubuntu before I was concerned about the fact that it isn't well maintained and thus could be vulnerable to security exploits since the last stable release.

...
Just upgrade Ubuntu to hirsute. The kernel can upgrade at most to 4.4.202 in my experience otherwise you start losing support for various Rockchip functions. If you want you can load Ayufan 5.12 image but as you have found you lose eMMC support etc.

Methinks the major issue is Rockchip not upgrading. But also Armbian and others may work with other eMMC chips/sizes but certainly not with mine.
  • ROCKPro64 v2.1 2GB, 16Gb eMMC for rootfs, SX8200Pro 512GB NVMe for /home, HDMI video & sound, Bluetooth keyboard & mouse. Arch (6.1 kernel, Openbox desktop) for general purpose daily PC.
  • PinePhone Pro Explorer Edition daily driver, Tow-boot on SPI, Arch/SXMO on eMMC
  • PinePhone BraveHeart now v1.2b 3/32Gb, Tow-boot with Arch/Phosh on eMMC
