Pinebook Pro doesn't boot most of the time unless connected via USB-serial!
OK , a separate section of emmc?
Anyway, linux seems like it cannot touch it
Since my emmc is blank in uboot area, i just tried some tests
It won't mount, no fs,,, OK lets try that
mkdosfs /dev/mmcblk2boot0,,, attribute "partition" not found,, failed
mke2fs .....,,,,,,Operation not permitted while setting up superblock
I didn't try a dd write, thought it might be pressing my luck
In dmesg talks about F2FS-fs not found, 4 lines
a little more digging,, boot0 and boot are disks!! Not very big tho. 3 for the price of 1
Since the bootrom is looking for idbloader at 0X8000 in its search path, if boot0 or boot1 is in the search path, it would work.
but where would uboot go?
