eMMC/SD catch-22

It's getting close to two years ago that ayufan made the SPI bootloader available for the rockpro64 which would boot USB, PXE, SD then eMMC... which I would have thought was directly transferable to the PBP, as long as you don't mind no uboot display during the uboot phase.

I agree that many of the problems posted on this forum are about getting the PBP to boot.  There is all this talk about taking apart the computer, juggling switches, and whatnot. Verbosity during startup isn't the issue.  It's that they can't start up their computers at all.  Getting the bootloader on SPI, where users are unlikely to accidentally rewrite it, would solve almost all of these problems.  So it should be a priority.
