Other boot options than Sdcard for linux 5.x kernel?
All due respect, using some other u-boot (that did not come with Armbian) is not really "using Armbian."  lol

Armbian comes with u-boot, in fact such low level customizations are the very raison d'être for Armbian in the first place.

There is a special tool however for installing to other media than sd card, called nand-sata-install (which is also available from armbian-config).  So, just burn your image to sd card (making sure to take all usual precautions), boot into it, then use those tools to install to the eMMC (or wherever you like).

What is Free Software and why is it so important for society?

Protocols, not Platforms

For the most Linux-y experience on your Linux phone, try SXMO!
