Not good! This was the whole reason we were moving towards SPI boot, so that you have a basically unbreakable boot mechanism with better boot priorities and more options. Plus you'd have the ability to have a builtin mechanism that could say 'YOU FOOL, GIMME A VALID BOOT IMAGE' when you... don't! :-P Rather than have people think it's broken. That's one of the reasons I liked having the original pinebook - I loaded the uboot onto the SPI there, even though it (the A64) has the right boot priority (SPI -> SD -> eMMC)... it just meant it will always be there if I do something more stupid than usual or something goes horribly wrong.

Luckily we do have some people moving in that direction. crystalgamma (in the IRC) is working on petitboot/levinboot that should hopefully provide a (even just minimum) UI and @xalius I believe has his own ongoing efforts.

The progress may not be quick, but at least it's happening and some awesome people are still steering us in the right direction.
