I do not suggest you do this unless you are comfortable with the flashing process. Even so, it would certainly be a great idea to FLASH A SDCARD NOT THE PHONE eMMC.(snip)

Is there any reason to not just use boot to jumpdrive on a SD and restore an .img whe we want to install to EMMC?
Is there any history of hosed bootloaders?
If not t is not like these phones end up brickworthy when the bootloader always prefers to boot form the SD card so once we have an everyday install and maybe a backup on SD we can also easily experiment with the new release or our own hacks.
It is nice that so far the pinephone feels more like installing to a laptop or perhaps bootable flash drive than what we have come to call flashing a phone or device.

To try and hit these in order.

1. I didn't want to offer a solution that could cause data loss, or an issue with the preinstalled software, I don't know anyone's level of comfort in the Linux world.
2. There are not any recorded issues of boot loader troubles that I am aware of, more of a possible suggestion than anything else. If anything goes wrong on my device, I flash it and start over. Although I was referencing a bootloader on the block device not the mainboard.

100% agree, also flashing, upgrading, backing up and initial booting appear to be faster and easier on the pinephone. Simple DD to a file and we have it all.
