Pinebook Pro won't boot from emmc
#1
Hello guys, 

I am a new linux user and I got a new pinebook pro. 
I installed kali ARM on the emmc by using a SD card after watching and reading some clips and articles. 
It looked everything fine at the first but After update, upgrade and rebooting it, it stopped booting. 
All I see is the solid red power light and it hangs with blank screen, when I press the power button. 

After a few tests, I can only boot from the SD card if I remove the emmc module from PBP. 
If the module and the SD card are both connected, it doesn't boot.
If the SD card is connected only, it does boot. 
It seems something is wrong on the emmc module and I want to reimage it. 

When SDcard and emmc are both bootable and connected, SDcard should boot first as far as I know but in this case, it doesn't. I am not sure why. 
Is there a way to boot forcefully from SDcard while the emmc module is already connected?
IF the emmc module is faulty, is there a way to test it? 

Thanks,
