NVME SPI Update not booting SD Card
#1
I updated the SPI following the instructions here https://github.com/pcm720/rockchip-u-boot/releases and now it boot directly to NVME but I seem to have lost the ability to boot from SD (green light won't come on at all).  If I remove the SD it powers and boots just fine.  BTW EMMC is removed at this time so that it won't boot first from that.

Was hoping to use the SD as a fallback to bypass the NVME if needed.

Found a newer update here https://github.com/pcm720/u-boot-build-scripts/releases

Trying that now.

Trying that now.  It worked and also returned the LEDs to work like it did from the factory Amber after power on Green when boot loader located.

It states in the wiki the factory 'boot  instructions' are on the eMMC.
That guides it to 'boot' from the sd card first, if one is inserted.
If you have flashed the SPI, that should have included perhaps boot sd card first and your NVME second ?
Then without an sd card it will boot first from your NVME.

@WZ9V Do you know how to configure the PBP to boot from NVMe without removing the eMMC?

It is in the compile options for that particular uboot, for example (pcm, dated Aug20)
@localhost pcm-uboot]$ strings u-boot.img |grep _target
boot_targets=mmc1 nvme0 usb0 mmc0 pxe dhcp
(mmc0=emmc,,mmc1=SD)
@WZ9V I have to wonder if that SD was bootable, if the nvme was disconnected or removed
would the same thing happen? (op, I know, old)
