Should I wipe bootloader on eMMC ?

I think the Explorer Edition does not have SPI storage.
Therefore I am not sure if this works yet, but maybe others can update me on that?

I have PPP EE, running Tow Boot WIP4 from the SPI.
I've had an unbootable manjaro on emmc due to the corrupted kernel image file after an update, installed Tow Boot without any problem using RE button.

Somehow that doesn't work for me.
I have flashed the SPI image to the microSD with: 

sudo dd if=spi.installer.img of=/dev/mmcblk0 bs=1M oflag=direct,sync status=progress

and then keeping the RE button pressed whilst pressing the power button, gives me a red light in the top left corner of the phone followed by a yellow light.
The next thing is that manjaro starts up.
