I tried that too.  I used the chromium image from the pinebook pro wiki, completed the above commands and still no joy.

To be clear, you wrote CrOS to you eMMC, and then flashed this u-boot? What was the output of the commands?

I need to flash this uboot to the sd card?

No, you should only need the u-boot on the eMMC. I think I misread your last post about flashing Chromium. the SoC looks at the eMMC u-boot, which then redirects to SD or NVMe.

Here's what I've done:  I installed Manjaro on the eMMC.  Then followed the instructions in the OP to boot from the nVME.  Now I am booting from the NVME, but am not able to get any SD card to boot.  I tried to boot Chromium and Debian builds that I know worked when I had Debian on the eMMC.  I have also tried to start fresh on the SD card by flashing a new Chromium and followed the instructions to delete the uboot on the SD, but I have not had any luck booting from the SD.  Any suggestions on what might be next to try would be appreciated.


On the Root-a (ChromiumOS) /boot/ it contains "/dtbs/" "/extlinux/" "boot.scr" "bootloader.bin" and "vmlinuz-4.4.190-g66800f3032c5"

the boot partition of my NVME contains: "/dtbs/" "boot.scr" "boot.scrpacnew" "boot.txt" "Boot.txtpacnew" "idbloader.img" "image" "image.gz" initramfs-linux.img" "mkscr" and "u-boot.itb"

Is something missing in the /boot/ folder of the ChromiumOS?
