For anyone else who is having the same issues, the script:

/usr/local/sbin/ <device>

where <device> is your SDcard (eg: /dev/mmcblk1)
will stop the PB from trying to boot into the SDCard.

So now I can leave the SD inserted and it boots right into the eMMC.


You should remove the SD card from the Rock64 if you're going to boot from the eMMC;  the bootup will get confused between the two; true.  But the worst of it from a maker standpoint is that the lower PI-2 bus gpio pins (blue bank, gpio1) are not available if you have the SD card plugged in.

Well I am on a Pinebook, so that's not really my biggest concern.  After I run the above script, it all works well.


doh;  my bad
